New York City, 1962: In his suite at the Sherry-Netherlands Hotel, Steve came into the room and suddenly stepped into an imaginary Formula One race car. He started up his “engine” and with roars, squeals, grrrs, and all the sounds of a racing vehicle, he “raced” down the “track,” only to end in a very loud “crash!”
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
