Daily Battlefields

"The world has no room for cowards. We must all be ready somehow to toil, to suffer, to die. And yours is not the less noble because no drum beats before you when you go out into your daily battlefields, and no crowds shout about your coming when you return from your daily victory or defeat." Robert Lewis Stevenson

"In valor there is hope." Tacitus

"The strength and glory of a land does not depend upon its wealth, its defenses, its great houses, its powerful armaments; but on the number of its gracious, serious, kind, wise, and courageous citizens." Martin Luther

"Faith is always at a disadvantage; it is a perpetually defeated thing which survives all conquerors." G. K. Chesterton

Thank you for those quotes, I was very encouraged by Robert Lewis Stevenson's. I am doing your Early American History course and am enjoying it very much. Thank you for teaching us the real truth about history; your class has taught me to love and cherish the past and learn from its strengths and weaknesses.
