The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it.
— Thucydides, History of the Peloponnesian War, Book II
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
— Ambrose Redmoon

Woody Allen is often credited with saying something like eighty percent of life is just showing up. Sometimes—like during the economic horror show we have just lived through this past year—I think the point is simply to endure.

Happy and healthy holidays to you and your loved ones. Be good.
