Bravery

Mrs. Darling:There are many different kinds of bravery. There's the bravery of thinking of others before one's self. Now, your father has never brandished a sword nor... nor fired a pistol, thank heavens. But he has made many sacrifices for his family, and put away many dreams.

Michael: Where did he put them?

Mrs. Darling: He put them in a drawer. And sometimes, late at night, we take them out and admire them. But it gets harder and harder to close the drawer... and he does. And that is why he is brave.

Do you think we are equally brave? Keeping our dreams and desires locked in our minds and allowing us to nurture them in secret...still living our every day life day after day after day?

Bravery, that is a beautiful word. And we are beautiful also. Brave and beautiful. Gee, I sound like Lestat ;DDD

But we are, aren't we?

And there's a book I haven't read yet...
