  • McCain the man remains one of the most inspiring public ?gures of his generation. The Washington Post Book World
  • From Why Courage Matters: The Way to a Braver Life
  • We’re all afraid of something. Some have more fears than others. The one we must all guard against is the fear of ourselves. Don’t let the sensation of fear convince you that you’re too weak to have courage. Fear is the opportunity for courage, not proof of cowardice. No one is born a coward. We were meant to love. And we were meant to have courage for it. So be brave. The rest is easy.”
