What I love about language.

This is what I love about language. Take this statement. 

There is no such thing as bravery; only degrees of fear.
~John Wainwright

This statement has a very negative feel to it. However, read the following.

There is no such thing as fear; only degrees of bravery.

What a difference this has. Now, Think of the small difference this structure has, and how you talk to people around you.
