Profile in Courage
To be courageous requires no exceptional qualifications, no magic formula, no special combination of time, place, and circumstance.
It is an opportunity that sooner or later is presented to us all. Politics merely furnish one
area which imposes special tests of courage.
In whatever arena of life one may meet the challenge of courage, whatever may be the sacrifices he faces if he follows his conscience-the loss of his friends, his fortune, his contentment, even the esteem of his fellow men-each man must decide for himself the course he will follow. The stories of past courage can define that ingredient-they can teach, they can offer hope, they can provide inspiration. But they cannot supply courage itself. For this each man must
look into his own soul.
