Or look at it this way. In a battle, or in mountain climbing, there is often one thing which it takes a lot of pluck to do; but it is also, in the long run, the safest thing to do. If you funk it, you will find yourself, hours later, in far worse danger. The cowardly thing is also the most dangerous thing.
C. S. Lewis in _Mere Christianity_, (New York: The Macmillan Company, 1972), p. 168. Originally published as _Beyond Personality_.
