This question was posted on another board a few years ago, but still resonates with me. So tell us, if you had to choose one or the other, which would it be and why?

Brave --- and smart enough to know when NOT to be!

I am thinking brave, but I am not sure - this is a good question!

I'd rather be both, but if I have to choose just one, I'd be brave.

I'd rather be brave. Strength will come from bravery.

That is a tough question, but I think I agree with Carol. Sometimes people who are strong think they are invulnerable and it gets them into trouble. I would rather be brave, yet know when to be afraid.

Depending on the situation, I think you can be both. I certainly was both when I was going through my divorce. However, if I had to choose I'd pick brave.

I also think that you can be both.
