Courage is the First Virtue

Standing up for what you believe is not always easy.  Neither is taking a step back and trying to understand what others believe to be true.

PL KEY 9: COURAGE IS THE FIRST VIRTUE (PLATO)

If you don’t have courage you can’t live any serious values. Without courage you won’t stand up for your position much less as is sometimes necessary, stand up for your adversary. To take a stand takes courage, to be honest and tell the truth, takes courage. Push hard for what you believe; have consideration for the other guy. Balance the two – courage and consideration.
