Danger -- if you meet it promptly and without flinching -- you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!
— Winston Churchill

One ought never to turn one's back on a threatened danger and try to run away from it. If you do that, you will double the danger. But if you meet it promptly and without flinching, you will reduce the danger by half. Never run away from anything. Never!
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
