“Give Us Courage”

"You cannot run away from weakness; 
you must some time fight it out or perish;
and if that be so, why not now, and where you stand?" 
- Robert Louis Stevenson

“Give Us Courage”
“Give us courage, gaiety and the quiet mind.
Spare us to our friends, soften to us our enemies.
Bless us, if it may be, in all our innocent endeavors.
If it may not, give us the strength to encounter
that which is to come, that we be brave in peril,
constant in tribulation, temperate in wrath,
and in all changes of fortune and down to the gates
of death, loyal and loving to one another.”
- Robert Louis Stevenson
