Are you talking about the Maccabees? They overcame adversity, defeated large Armies.
I don’t know how to talk about their virtues in Hebrew though.
Someone else would be able to put it into Hebrew if that’s what you’re looking for .

the whole book is on the topic you mentioned.

What is the purpose of the "message you are looking for" ? In what context do you seek to use these quotes?
It sounds like you have something specific in mind. What is it? And why do they need to be in Hebrew?

i'm curious
I'll have to go through what you sent me again then!

I have been going through a tough time in life and I am trying to get myself back together and rebuild myself into a better stronger me. I'm trying to rise above the adversity I am facing and use it become stronger.

I'd like it to be in Hebrew because I'd like to tie my efforts into those of my ancestors. To use it as motivation. As a reminder to myself.

one way of reading the book of Tehillim (Psalms) is with the perspective that everything described is about you, your internal world, the things you face, the internal barriers or battles you face, and of course overcoming them with the strength and protection and guidance of Hashem.

if you are able to read it in Hebrew then read it in Hebrew.
if you want the Hebrew nearby, but will read it in English, then get a book that has the facing pages one in English one in Hebrew.
if you want to recite it in Hebrew get a translinear book, with line by line pronunciation key in Hebrew

i like having Hebrew on the facing page. it gives me comfort to see it to have it there. i like to be able to find words and phrases that I know or recognize.

Im really looking for one phrase/verse/paragraph that encompasses those things I mentioned.

Id like to make some sort of poster or something creative to hang above my desk as a reminder to myself everyday.

יִשְׂחַ֣ק לְ֖פַחַד וְלֹ֣א יֵחָ֑ת וְלֹ֥א יָ֜שׁ֗וּב מִפְּנֵי־חָֽרֶב

"He scorns fear and is not dismayed; neither does he retreat because of the sword." -- Job 39:22

Note: The verse is describing a war-horse, but it can apply to a human warrior, as well. I love horses, so that's why I especially love the descriptive verses in this chapter of Job.

This is more along the lines of what I'm looking for.

Anything else like this?

Thanks!
