WHAT MAKES COURAGE?
George Zaharias, the husband of the great golfer Babe Didrikson Zaharias once told Bob Richards this story: Babe was dying of cancer, and he stood by her bed, crying like a baby. She said, “Now, honey, don’t take on so. While I’ve been in the hospital, I have learned one thing. A moment of happiness is a lifetime, and I have had a lot of happiness. I have a lot of it.” Richards wrote about this later, in his book Heart of a Champion: “That’s courage to stress the quality of life rather than just the quantity, to meet life’s greatest tragedy with a smile. That’s what makes courage.”
