„One man with courage makes a majority.“
— Andrew Jackson, However, see also the attributed quote "desperate courage makes One a majority." Attributed to Jackson by Robert F. Kennedy in his "Foreword" to the "Young Readers Memorial Edition" of John F. Kennedy's Profiles in Courage, and by Ronald Reagan in nominating Robert Bork to the US Supreme Court, this has never been found in Jackson's writings, and there is no record of him having declared it. Somewhat similar statements are known to have been made by others:
— Bruce Lee Hong Kong-American actor, martial artist, philosopher and filmmaker 1940 - 1973
— Paullina Simons, The Bronze Horseman
— Booker T. Washington African-American educator, author, orator, and advisor 1856 - 1915

„If you have the courage to touch life for the first time, you will never know what hit you. Everything man has thought, felt and experienced is gone, and nothing is put in its place.“

Attributed to Winston Churchill in The Prodigal Project : Book I : Genesis (2003) by Ken Abraham and Daniel Hart, p. 224 and other places, though no source attribution is given. It actually derives from an advertising campaign for Budweiser beer in the late 1930s.
