Courage Toasts

Here's to you from morning till night;
Here's to the person with courage to fight­
The courage to fight and the courage to live­
The courage to learn, and to love, and forgive.

To courage, which Ernest Hemingway defined as "grace under pressure.”

Here's to our brave forefathers. As Jonathan Swift said, "He was a bold man that first ate an oyster."

In the immortal words of John Paul Jones, "I have not yet begun to fight.”

May noise never excite us to halt, or confusion reduce us to defeat.
