Whenever I think of courage, I think of Martin Luther King, Jr. and this iconic photo is my favorite image of the Reverend. Even more than his "I have a dream" speech, this picture inspires me. Why?
Because all you have to do is look at his face and you can see how scared he was of what he had to do. You think he didn't know that people wanted to kill him and he very well might not survive his quest? But he didn't let fear stop him.
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." - MLK

"The world is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It's the age-old struggle-the roar of the crowd on one side and the voice of your conscience on the other." - Gen. Douglas MacArthur
