The First Quality We Admire & Hope To Develop Ourselves: Courage

The qualities we most admire in others are the same qualities we aspire to develop in ourselves.

Courage -- the first of them -- is the strength to go out into the unknown physically, mentally, and spiritually, and persevere through danger, fear, or difficulty.

We show courage by being receptive to the thoughts and beliefs of others, even when we don’t agree, by simply acknowledging the merit of someone else’s judgment, opinions, or wishes.  We are courageous when we manage our fear, not allowing our differences to scare us away from one another.
