The two kinds of courage - from a Hiroshima's survivor

I saw a documentary about Hiroshima and an old lady said the following and it is still on my mind:

"I have discovered that there are two kinds of courage: the courage of living and the courage of dying.
My sister did choose the courage of dying. I have chosen the courage of living."

I don't think I need to say anymore but you are not seeing the woman and I have her image on my mind and all the story she told so I did my little discoveries:
I've discovered that we all have the two courages and also that sometimes we can say "the courage of happiness" and the "courage of sadness".
Hope it makes some sense.

I'm glad somebody said anything.
We think it's so eloquent and sometimes it's just for us.
Thank you!
