In whatever arena of life one may meet the challenge of courage.

Whatever may be the sacrifices he faces if he follows his conscience-the loss of his friends, his fortune, his contentment,even the esteem of his fellow men-each man must decide for himself the course he will follow.

The stories of past courage can define that ingredient-they can teach, they can offer hope,they can provide inspiration.

前人勇敢的故事可以告诉你什么叫勇气—这些故事能够教导我们,为我们带来希望和鼓励,
