Self-confidence is the most valuable gift a man can possess, but it is a gift not easily granted… To possess true confidence, it is necessary to have learned to know oneself at moments when one was standing on the very frontier of things, time when one could even cast a glance over to “the other side.” And then one had to examine oneself with unsparing clarity to establish what one felt, thought or did at such a moment.
