What we do in life echoes in eternity

Summary:
What we do in life echoes in eternity In science, courage is to follow the motto of enlightenment and Kant’s dictum — Sapere Aude!  To use your own understanding, having the ​courage to think for yourself and question ‘received opinion,’ authority or orthodoxy. In our daily lives, courage is a capability to confront fear, as when in front of the powerful and mighty, not to step back, but stand up for one’s rights not to be humiliated or abused. As when Rosa Parks, on December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama, refused to give up her seat to make room for a white passenger. Courage is to do the right thing despite danger and fear. As when Sir Nicholas Winton organised the rescue of 669 children destined for Nazi concentration camps during World War II.
