Ideas of C.S. Lewis, by Text

[British, 1898 - 1963, Medieval scholar, novelist and Christain apologist.]

1950 works
p. Courage is not a virtue, but the form of every virtue at its testing point
     Full Idea: Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.
     From: C.S. Lewis (works [1950])
     A reaction: This appeared on Twitter, without mention of its source. Adding it breaks my normal rules, but I hope you agree that it is too good to miss. Is not even resolutely facing up to suffering or death a case of genuine courage? Determination, prioritisation?
