    I believe that we all have courage within us. Sometimes we need a catalyst to spark it. Once you find it, you can be unstoppable. Thanks for adding Sparks, my friend!

      You’re most welcome and I agree. Once we find that courage, we can accomplish a lot.

    Had never looked at it that way, but true. Without courage, we wouldn’t make the first effort at most things. 🙂

    Courage is when you discover your inner strength and realise all things are possible. Though sometimes it takes a few goes to get it right.

    All of us have courage. Some are afraid to let it out. Does that make sense to anyone other than me?

      It makes sense to me, Patricia. I feel some are afraid to let it out because they fear the consequences. Courage doesn’t mean being gruff, it means standing your ground, IMO.

        Sometimes courage is the kindest part of us and needs to be shared no matter the consequences.

    A great quote Eugenia and thank you for sharing. Courage drives us as writers and enables us to take those little steps to share our work.

      And, it’s those little steps that matter. 😉 I am glad you enjoyed the quote, Davy.

      What a lovely comment, Sue. It’s people like you that makes the world a better place.

    That quote is the story of my life. I remind myself that if I lack the courage to face those things that I have to face, then I am slowly killing other parts of me. I totally love your blog outfit and appreciate the mention 🙂

      Maya Angelou was a very wise woman. I love her quotes because I can relate to them. I think I found a blog outfit that works well with my blogs. I use the same theme for both BrewNSpew and ThusNSuch, each with a different format. Sending hugs. xo
