The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.
What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; ’tis dearness only that gives everything its value.
I love the man that can smile in trouble,that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection.
‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles until death.
~ Thomas Paine
