“Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die.”
– War Doll
“‘He that will lose his life, the same shall save it,’ is not a piece of mysticism for saints and heroes. It is a piece of everyday advice for sailors or mountaineers. It might be printed in an Alpine guide or a drill book.
You can only get away from death by continually stepping within an inch of it. If you want to live, and I mean truly live; you must desire life like water and drink death like wine.”
– G. K. Chesterton
