I've admired the late William Sloane Coffin (chaplain at Yale University and later senior minister of Riverside Church in New York) for many, many years now. Here's something he said that is very encouraging, really. Many people believe that courage means having no fear. It doesn't mean that at all:
Courage means being well aware of the worst that can happen, being scared almost to death, and then doing the right thing anyhow.
