CHALLENGE
[ Also see Contention Cowardice Dueling Quarreling ]

If not, resolve, before we go,
  That you and I must pull a crow.
    Y' 'ad best (quoth Ralpho), as the Ancients
      Say wisely, have a care o' the main chance.
      - Samuel Butler (1), Hudibras
         (pt. II, canto II, l. 499)

We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.
      - John Fitzgerald Kennedy,
        in his Rice University Moon Speech, September 12, 1962

Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you, they are supposed to help you discover who you are.
      - Bernice Johnson Reagon

No, by my soul, I never in my life
  Did hear a challenge urged more modestly,
    Unless a brother should a brother dare
      To gentle exercise and proof of arms.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part I
         (Vernon at V, ii)

His honor is as true
  In this appeal as thou art all unjust;
    And that thou art so, there I throw my gage
      To prove it on thee to the extremest point
        Of mortal breathing.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Second
         (Percy at IV, i)

Plague on't, an I thought he had been valiant, and so cunning in fence. I'd have seen him damned ere I'd have challenged him.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Andrew at III, iv)

'Thou com'st to the Lady Olivia, and in my sight she uses thee kindly. But thou liest in thy throat; that is not the matter I challenge thee for.'
      - William Shakespeare,
        Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Toby at III, iv)
