Letter from Elena Ybarra
…Sunday next. Recall what we have shared. Elena”








I have found no book on bravery, no formula for courage. I think perhaps a man is valiant only when his fear of cowardice exceeds his fear of death.”

Similar texts:

Cowards die many times before their deaths.
The valiant never taste of death but once.
Of all the wonders that I yet have heard,
It seems to me most strange that men should fear,
Seeing that death, a necessary end,
Will come when it will come.”
William Shakespeare, “Julius Ceasar” Act II Scene 2


Set me a seal upon my hear for love is as strong as hate and hate is as cruel as the grave..”


Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm:
for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave:
the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.
Bible, Solomon 8:6 King James Version
