My Quote for 2011

Every once in awhile, I hear a quote that so perfectly summarizes how I'm feeling at a given moment, I am compelled, it would seem, to emblazon it on the wall by my desk. Today, I came across such a quote.

"A hero is no braver than an ordinary man," Ralph Waldo Emerson once observed, "but he is brave five minutes longer."

Today, I pray that each of us finds the strength to hang onto our bravery for those extra five minutes in whatever challenges we may face.
