Courage quotes
Courage
Screw up your courage, you screwed up everything else.

- Smith, Donald
There is nothing in the world so much admired as a man who knows how to bear unhappiness with courage.

- Seneca
Most of the high spots in our lives come about through encouragement. I don't care how great, how famous, how successful a man may be, he hungers for applause.

I believe that whoever tries to think things through honestly will soon recognize how unworthy and even fatal is the traditional bias against Negroes. What can the man of good will do to combat this deeply rooted prejudice? He must have the courage to set an example by words and deed, and must watch lest his children become influenced by racial bias.

- Albert Einstein
Cowardice and courage are never without a measure of affectation. Nor is love. Feelings are never true. They play with their mirrors.

- Baudrillard, Jean
The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum - even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there's free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate.

- Noam Chomsky
A woman might claim to retain some of the child's faculties, although very limited and defused, simply because she has not been encouraged to learn methods of thought and develop a disciplined mind. As long as education remains largely induction ignorance will retain these advantages over learning and it is time that women impudently put them to work.

- Greer, Germaine
You take a number of small steps which you believe are right, thinking maybe tomorrow somebody will treat this as a dangerous provocation. And then you wait. If there is no reaction, you take another step: courage is only an accumulation of small steps.

- Konrad, George
Nearly every man who develops an idea works at it up to the point where it looks impossible, and then gets discouraged. that's not the place to become discouraged.

- Edison, Thomas A.
If you explore beneath shyness or party chit-chat, you can sometimes turn a dull exchange into an intriguing one. I've found this to be particularly true in the case of professors or intellectuals, who are full of fascinating information, but need encouragement before they'll divulge it.

- Joyce Carol Oates
Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world which yields most painfully to change.

- Robert F. Kennedy
Efforts and courage are not enough without purpose and direction.

- Kennedy, John F.
I always loved running -- it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs.

- Owens, Jesse
Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.

- Carnegie, Dale
Courage consists in equality to the problem before us.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Woman and men of retiring timidity are cowardly only in dangers which affect themselves, but the first to rescue when others are in danger.

- Richter, Jean Paul
We must have the courage to allow a little disorder in our lives.

- Weininger, Ben
The highest courage is to dare to appear to be what one is.

- John Lancaster Spalding
A wife encourages her husband's egoism in order to encourage her own.

- Green, Russel
Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence.

- Albert Einstein
