Indeed

We must meet reverses boldly and not suffer them to frighten us my dear. We must act the play out. We must live misfortune down!

Betsey Trotwood in Charles Dickens’ David Copperfield.

Maggie Smith (who plays Betsey T.) says this with such dauntless sparkle in the movie version I saw a bit of yesterday, I couldn’t keep the line to myself.
