„You know you're already brave. You don't get very far in life without having to be brave an awful lot.“

—  Ysabella Brave American singer 1979

"Everyday Bravery" (25 March 2007) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_dppH8kaeo
Kontext: You know you're already brave. You don't get very far in life without having to be brave an awful lot. Because we all have our frightening moments and difficult trials and we don't have much of a choice but to get through 'em, and it takes a lot of bravery to do that. The most important thing about bravery is this — It's not about not being scared — it's about being scared and doing it anyway — that's bravery.

„Here was the very negation of life and motion, here was the stark, bald beginning when there was no life, nor even thought of life.“

—  Clifford D. Simak, buch Time and Again

Quelle: Time and Again (1951), Chapter XIX (p. 99)
Kontext: As he looked, Sutton felt the cold hand of loneliness reach down with icy fingers to take him in its grip. For here was sheer, mad loneliness such as he had never dreamed. Here was the very negation of life and motion, here was the stark, bald beginning when there was no life, nor even thought of life. Here anything that knew or thought or moved was an alien thing, a disease, a cancer on the face of nothingness.
