“But don't you feel as if you would try to be brave yourself next time?»
«Yes, I do. But trying is not much.»
«Yes, it is—a very great deal, for it is a beginning. And a beginning is the greatest thing of all. To try to be brave is to be brave.
The coward who tries to be brave is before the man who is brave because he is made so, and never had to try.»
«How kind you are, North Wind!»
«I am only just. All kindness is but justice. We owe it.»”
