This is simply a book of quotes about courage. There is a fairly good 7-10 page intro at the beginning. The quotes are great and I would highly recommend to have this book laying around and to pick it up regularly and gain encouragement from the great minds littered throughout.

Crossing the room to ask a woman out on a date or
