Anna Sewell
“I said, 'I have heard people talk about war as if it was a very fine thing.'

Ah!' said [Captain], 'I should think they never saw it. No doubt it is very fine when there is no enemy, when it is just exercise and parade, and sham-fight. Yes, it is very fine then; but when thousands of good brave men and horses are killed, or crippled for life, it has a very different look.'
Do you know what they fought about?' said I.
No,' he said, 'that is more than a horse can understand, but the enemy must have been awfully wicked people, if it was right to go all that way over the sea on purpose to kill them.”
Anna Sewell, Black Beauty

Friedrich Nietzsche
“How much truth does a spirit endure, how much truth does it dare?”

Chirag Tulsiani
“Our hearts bear a similarity with storerooms.
We hold in them our trampled convictions, our fears, suppressed acts of valor, disappointments, enmity, anguish, secrets, things we wish we should have done, things we wish we shouldn’t have, regret.
And continue piling them up with emotions, memories, conversations which did happen and conversations which didn’t, soured relationships and bitter people all of which we should have discarded, we keep it within until there is no space left, until the room is full, occupied after which we go on to lock it.
Once in a while we happen to open the room and sight the dust accumulated all over, we relive each moment, each memory and each emotion again and soon fall upon the realization as to how deeply the room is in need of cleaning and so we clean it.
We clean it so that we can fill it once more, hold it, bear it, relish it, heal from it and then finally let it go.”
Chirag Tulsiani

L. Frank Baum
“El verdadero valor reside en enfrentarse al peligro aun cuando uno está asustado.”
L. Frank Baum, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Valor consists in the power of self-recovery, so that a man cannot have his flank turned, cannot be out-generalled, but put him where you will, he stands. This can only be by his preferring truth to his past apprehension of truth; and his alert acceptance of it, from whatever quarter; the intrepid conviction that his laws, his relations to society, his Christianity, his world may at any time be superseded and decease.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Alison Goodman
“-Vos tenéis el valor de un guerrero -masculló.
Vi que se volvía y recogía ropas del suelo. ¿Él creía que yo era valiente? Pero estaba aterrado -siempre aterrado.
-No -objeté-. No lo tengo.
Él dejó de meter aquella túnica de valor incalculable entre dos fardos y me miró.
-¿Tenéis miedo ahora?
Asentí, y me ruboricé de verguenza.
-¿Y el miedo va a impediros actuar?
-No.
-Ese es el valor del guerrero." Ryko y Eon”
Alison Goodman, Eon: Dragoneye Reborn

Carlos Cuauhtémoc Sánchez
“— Las cosas no valen por lo que cuestan en dinero.
— ¿Entonces?
— Primero, por su valor de estima y segundo por su valor de servicio.

— ¿Cómo?
—Tu abuelita conservaba unos pétalos secos dentro de su Biblia.
No valían nada, pero eran su mayor tesoro. Cuando los perdió, lloró
mucho. Hay cosas que adquieren gran valor porque representan tu
pasado, tus sentimientos o porque has puesto en ellas algo de ti:
Intenciones nobles, creatividad, desvelos. Una obra artística original
puede no valer nada para otros, pero para el autor es invaluable; a
veces prefiere regalarla que venderla, puesto que no puede ponerle
precio a algo así.”
Carlos Cuauhtémoc Sánchez, Los ojos de mi princesa

“Acuérdate De Tu Grandeza

Antes de que naciera,
y aún eran demasiado pequeños para
el ojo humano,
que ganó la carrera por la vida
de entre 250 millones de competidores.
Y sin embargo,
¿qué tan rápido se ha olvidado de
su fortaleza,
cuando su propia existencia
es la prueba de su grandeza.
Usted nació un ganador,
un guerrero,
quien desafió las probabilidades
de sobrevivir a la más sangrienta
batalla de todas ellas.
Y ahora que es un gigante,
¿por qué usted aún duda de la victoria
contra el menor número,
y márgenes más amplios?
Los únicos muros que existen,
son aquellas que se han colocado en su mente.
Y cualesquiera que sean los obstáculos que concebir,
existen sólo porque ha olvidado
lo que ya han
logrado.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Oscar Wilde
“Hoy en día la gente conoce el precio de todo,
pero no sabe el valor de nada.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Mad fearlessness is not courage. The only requirement for courage is a good heart.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Slaying Dragons

Maria Fernanda Heredia
“Quería llorar, pero no lo haría, el llanto propio es a veces un trofeo para otros, y un trofeo solo debe ser entregado a quien se lo merece.”
Maria Fernanda Heredia, Hay Palabras que los Peces no Entienden

Miguel de Unamuno
“Casi el único valor de las grandes obras maestras del ingenio humano consiste en haber provocado un libro de crítica o de comentario.”
Miguel de Unamuno, Niebla

Micky Bane
“¿Cómo podría ser cobarde quien enfrenta sus miedos con tal de alcanzar sus añoranzas?”
Micky Bane, Blaine

Jean-Jacques Rousseau
“Ancient politicians talked incessantly about morality and virtue; our politicians talk only about business and money. One will tell you that in a particular country a man is worth the sum he could be sold for in Algiers; another, by following this calculation, will find countries where a man is worth nothing, and others where he is worth less than nothing. They assess men like herds of livestock. According to them, a man has no value to the State apart from what he consumes in it. Thus one Sybarite would have been worth at least thirty Lacedaemonians. Would someone therefore hazard a guess which of these two republics, Sparta or Sybaris, was overthrown by a handful of peasants and which one made Asia tremble?”
Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Stephen E. Ambrose
“... you can manufacture weapons, and you can purchase ammunition, but you can’t buy valor and you can’t pull heroes off an assembly line.”
Stephen E. Ambrose

Sergei Lukyanenko
“To kill the enemy is valorous. To condemn him to torment is infamous. To condemn him to eternal torment is eternal infamy.”
Sergei Lukyanenko, The Last Watch

Hermann Hesse
“Somente as idéias que vivemos é que têm valor.”
Hermann Hesse, Demian: Die Geschichte von Emil Sinclairs Jugend

“...A world is supported by four things...the learning of the wise, the justice of the great, the prayers of the righteous and the valor of the brave. But all of these are as nothing without a ruler who knows the art of ruling.”
Frank Herberterbert

Paulo Coelho
“La sabiduría tiene valor solamente si puede ayudar al hombre a vencer algún obstáculo. Un martillo no tendría sentido en el mundo si no existieran clavos para martillear. Y aun existiendo clavos, el martillo continuaría sin función si se limitase a pensar: "Puedo clavar esos clavos con dos golpes". El martillo tiene que actuar.”
Paulo Coelho, The Pilgrimage

“challenges are everywhere. Awake! challenge and defeat the challenges that challenge you in a challenging way and be not be defeated by the challenges that challenge you in a challenging way”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

George R.R. Martin
“Valor is a poor substitute for numbers.”
George R.R. Martin, A Feast for Crows

“Todo lo que he perdido
¡qué bien perdido está!; yo me he ganado.
Ellos nos han vendido.
Y, en el lance, han pagado
con nuestro valor —¡justo!— y al contado.”
Juan Jose Domenchina, Tres Elegias Jubilares
