I’ve been meaning to blog this since we saw The Village a couple of weeks ago, but I keep forgetting! So here it goes.
There’s a scene in the movie where Ivy asks Lucius why he isn’t afraid like everyone else in the village. I thought his answer was one of the better definitions of quiet courage that I’ve heard from a movie. He says simply that he “thinks only of what needs to be done.” No macho BS, no bragging, just doing what needs to be done, no matter what else might be going on. There’s a personal characteristic to emulate.
