Courage is the mastery of fear-not the absence of fear.

Change and endure

Seek change, embrace change, encourage change. At the same time be wary of change, careful about how you make it.

Change exists at the heart of life, forming the very definition of life. Yet there is more to life than mere change.

Life has meaning, beauty, worth because it can transcend change. There is an essential, treasured part of you that is the same as it ever was, and will always be.

Life changes and at the same time, endures. As such, in that glorious contradiction, there is nothing else like it.

Seize opportunities to change, to grow, improve, move forward. At the same time, refuse to compromise those fundamental, enabling values on which your life is built.

Change, but not just for the sake of change. Change in order to better express the meaning, the purpose, the essence that is always you.

— Ralph Marston
