My resolution's placed, and I have nothing
  Of woman in me: now from head to foot
    I am marble-constant: now the fleeting moon
      No planet is of mine.
      - William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra
         (Cleopatra at V, ii)

Be stirring as the time; be fire with fire.
  Threaten the threat'ner, and outface the brow
    Of bragging horror. So shall inferior eyes,
      That borrow their behaviors from the great,
        Grow great by your example and put on
          The dauntless spirit of resolution.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life and Death of King John
         (Bastard at V, i)

And hearts resolved and hands prepared
  The blessings they enjoy to guard.
      - Tobias George Smollett,
        Humphry Clinker--Ode to Leven Water

A good inclination is but the first rude draught of virtue, but the finishing strokes are from the will; which, if well disposed, will by degrees perfect,--if ill disposed, will by the superinduction of ill habits quickly deface it.
      - Bishop Robert South

I was acquainted once with a gallant soldier who assured me that his only measure of courage was this: upon the first fire, in an engagement, he immediately looked upon himself as a dead man. He then bravely fought out the remainder of the day, perfectly regardless of all manner of danger, as becomes a dead man to be. So that all the life or limbs he carried back again to his tent he reckoned as clear gains, or, as he himself expressed it, so much out of the fire.
      - Laurence Sterne

Good resolutions are simply checks that men draw on a bank where they have no account.
      - Oscar Wilde (Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde)
