Pluck



In the fell clutch of circumstance,
I have not winced nor cried aloud:
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
-W.E. Henley (1849–1903)

Remarkably, you have the knack to offer up the right words--the right quote--when so many others fall short.

pluck
NOUN: The quality of mind enabling one to face danger or hardship resolutely.

I am abashed, ladies.
I speak only to circumstances.

portia said...

Abashed? You? Let's not get silly here, spd:)

Sigh... I would *never* have gotten away with that, Portia :)
