"When you are born...your courage is new and clean. You are brave enough for anything...But as you get older, your courage attracts gunk and crusty things and dirt and fear and knowing how bad things can get and what pain feels like. By the time you're half-grown, your courage barely moves at all, it's so grunged up with living. So every once in a while, you have to scrub it up...or else you'll never be brave again." –"The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland In A Ship Of Her Own Making" Catherynne M. Valente
