Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualitites, because ... it is the quality that guarantees all others.
You ask: `What is our aim?' I can answer in one word: `Victory!' Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be: for without victory there is no survival.
-- Sir Winston Churchill, First speech in House of Commons as Prime Minister, 13 May 1940
