“There were a number of definitions of courage, but now I was seeing it in its simplest form: you do what has to be done day after day, and you never quit.”
Eric Greitens, The Heart and the Fist: The Education of a Humanitarian, the Making of a Navy SEAL

“As warriors, as humanitarians, they've taught me that without courage, compassion falters, and that without compassion, courage has no direction.”
Eric Greitens, The Heart and the Fist: The Education of a Humanitarian, the Making of a Navy SEAL

“...it's not enough to fight for a better world; we also have to live lives worth fighting for.”
