Quote of the Day

“I wish I shared your confidence.”

He blinked, the two stars of his eyes vanishing for a moment, then said, “May I entrust you with a secret, regarding confidence?”

“Of course.”

“Bravery, as I am sure you are well aware, consists not of the absence of fear but in the taking of action as though the fear were not felt. Confidence, likewise, consists of the presentation of assurance as though there were no doubt as to a successful outcome. Such presentation, however false its origin, is remarkably efficacious in its effect both on others and on oneself.”

She smiled in the darkness. “Is this, then, the secret to a successful captaincy? Pretense?”

“It is perhaps the only such secret.”

~ Arabella of Mars, David D. Levine
