VIRTUE

“Standing up for what is right regardless of what others think or what will happen to us.”

Moral

Excellence

“to do what one has to do as if from inclination – likened to courage which is the quality of being fearless.”

ralph waldo emerson
Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong.

Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.”
