AnswerThe common theme is COURAGE.
Courage is the price that Life exacts for granting peace. - Amelia Earhart
Courage is fear that has said its prayers. - Dorothy Bernard
Courage is the art of being the only one who knows you're scared to death. - Harold Wilson
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward. - Jean Paul Richter
Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others. - Robert Louis Stevenson
Some have been thought brave because they were afraid to run away. - Thomas Fuller
Note: The hint refers to "The Red Badge of Courage" by Stephen Crane. SHRIVEL decodes to COURAGE.
