Plain talk in tough times

Patrick Ruffini surveys the blogosphere's favorite lines from the Inaugural address. No one has mentioned the line that still sticks with me:

"You have seen that life is fragile, and evil is real, and courage triumphs."

It's far less brutal than Churchill's offer of "blood, toil, tears, and sweat," and ultimately hopeful. Which probably makes it just right for our age.
