Courage


"We must combine the toughness of the serpent and the softness of a dove, a tough mind and a tender heart."
Just thought I'd share a quote from one of the books that made a profound impact on me when I read it for the first time. My college roommate mailed me a copy of Strength to Love after we already graduated and she had moved to Germany. It definitely gave me a lot to think about, touched and empowered me all at the same time. The title just gets me, too.
