...for, though they needed not to care much what people said of them while they were both conscious to themselves of an unspotted purity, yet, because few could have come so near the fire as they did and not have been scorched, had it been known it would have occasioned suspicions in some and reflections from others. Good people would have been troubled, and bad people would have triumphed, and therefore let it not be known. Note, We must always take care, not only to keep a good conscience, but to keep a good name: either we must not do that which, though innocent, is liable to be misinterpreted, or, if we do, we must not let it be known. We must avoid not only sin, but scandal.

Courage is the sin quo non of leadership: it is that quality of character that will encounter danger with firmness.† Courage will stand on principle in the face of opposition and unpopularity.† It will confront moral evil with the truth, and will face physical danger with valor.† While others may falter through fear, a courageous leader will remain calm in crisis and vigilant in action.
