a.k.a. heroism

I think of “valor” as a more ambitious form of courage. Rather than waiting for danger to turn up, and then standing forthright in the face of it, as the brave person does, the valorous person goes out in seek of dangers that need facing and so invites opportunities to be brave. I don’t know whether there’s any good support for my chosen definition, though. ―DG
