It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.
The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood.
George S. Patton
There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.
Here is the manliness of manhood, that a man has a good reason for what he does, and has a will in doing it.
One cannot always be a hero, but one can always be a man.
