[ Also see Bravery Courage Cowardice Endurance Firmness Heroes Patience Resignation Resolution Soldiers Strength Valor ]

It is sufficient to have a simple heart in order to escape the harshness of the age, in order not to fly from the unfortunate; but it is to have some understanding of the imperishable law, to seek them in the forgetfulness against which they dare not complain, to prefer them in their ruin, to admire them in their struggles.
      - Etiene Pivert de Senancour

Blessed are those whose blood and judgment are so well commingled that they are not a pipe for Fortune's finger to sound what stop she please.
      - William Shakespeare

In struggling with misfortunes lies the true proof of virtue.
      - William Shakespeare

Though Fortune's malice overthrow my state,
  My mind exceeds the compass of her wheel.
      - William Shakespeare

Bid that welcome
  Which comes to punish us, and we punish it,
    Seeming to bear it lightly.
      - William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra
         (Antony at IV, xiv)

There is a strength of quiet endurance as significant of courage as the most daring feats of prowess.
      - Henry Theodore Tuckerman

Fortitude has its extremes as well as the rest of the virtues, and ought, like them, to be always attended by prudence.
      - Gjisbert Voet (Gisbertus Voetius)

Who fights
  With passions and o'ercomes, that man is arm'd
    With the best virtue--passive fortitude.
      - Daniel Webster
