Courage at Lyndon
2016-17: The Year of Courage at Lyndon
At Lyndon, we pride ourselves on an ethic of care, and the establishment of life-long relationships. In order to further bolster this ideal, the Lyndon community will build on our previous year’s exploration of social justice and compassion by coming together to understand how courage informs compassion and how it strengthens our commitment to social justice. During the year, academic departments, student groups, and campus events and activities will focus on topics related to courage. This year, posters, kiosks, conversations, book discussions, and classroom discussions will help educate and demonstrate these ideas to create a stronger sense of community here at Lyndon.
What is courage?
Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says, I’ll try again tomorrow. Mary Anne Radmacher
Courage is about doing what you’re afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you’re scared. Have the courage to act instead of react. Oliver Wendell Holmes.
Speak your mind, even if your voice shakes. Maggie Kuhn, Social Activist
From caring comes courage. Lao Tzu
