The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud. (Coco Chanel, 20th century French fashion designer)
Have you ever found it difficult to express your views in a lively discussion on, say, politics or religion? Do you feel intimidated by the intelligent and well-expressed opinions of others? In circumstances like that, it may be difficult to say what you think, but the courageous expression of what you believe to be true needs to be shared with others.
There is a time for everything . . . a time to be silent and a time to speak (Ecclesiastes 31, 7).
