Whether you be man or woman you will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.
Best Quotes about Courage
Courage leads to heaven; fear leads to death.
Though the practice of chivalry fell even more sadly short of its theoretic standard than practice generally falls below theory, it remains one of the most precious monuments of the moral history of our race, as a remarkable instance of a concerted and organized attempt by a most disorganized and distracted society, to raise up and carry into practice a moral ideal greatly in advance of its social condition and institutions; so much so as to have been completely frustrated in the main object, yet never entirely inefficacious, and which has left a most sensible, and for the most part a highly valuable impress on the ideas and feelings of all subsequent times.
Mill, John Stuart
We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.
King Jr. Martin Luther
He that would be superior to external influences must first become superior to his own passions.
The brave and bold persist even against fortune; the timid and cowardly rush to despair though fear alone.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. [Joshua 1:9]
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
More firm and sure the hand of courage strikes, when it obeys the watchful eye of caution.
It requires courage not to surrender oneself to the ingenious or compassionate counsels of despair that would induce a man to eliminate himself from the ranks of the living; but it does not follow from this that every huckster who is fattened and nourished in self-confidence has more courage than the man who yielded to despair.
Courage consists not in blindly overlooking danger, but in seeing it, and conquering it.
Richter, Jean Paul
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare.
Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Courage is the art of being the only one who knows you're scared to death.
There are times to cultivate and create, when you nurture your world and give birth to new ideas and ventures. There are times of flourishing and abundance, when life feels in full bloom, energized and expanding. And there are times of fruition, when things come to an end. They have reached their climax and must be harvested before they begin to fade. And finally of course, there are times that are cold, and cutting and empty, times when the spring of new beginnings seems like a distant dream. Those rhythms in life are natural events. They weave into one another as day follows night, bringing, not messages of hope and fear, but messages of how things are.
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterwards.
Richter, Jean Paul
You are merely not feeling equal to the tasks before you.
To love someone deeply gives you strength. Being loved by someone deeply gives you courage.
I never thought much of the courage of a lion tamer. Inside the cage he is at least safe from people.
Shaw, George Bernard
Wealth lost is something lost, honor lost is something lost: Courage lost all is lost.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Courage is poorly housed that dwells in numbers; the lion never counts the herd that are about him, nor weighs how many flocks he has to scatter.
We must have the courage to allow a little disorder in our lives.
The real acid test of courage is to be just your honest self when everybody is trying to be like somebody else.
No fact of human nature is more characteristic that its willingness to live on a chance.
The more thou dost advance, the more thy feet pitfalls will meet. The Path that leadeth on is lighted by one fire -- the light of daring burning in the heart. The more one dares, the more he shall obtain. The more he fears, the more that light shall pale
Blavatsky, Helena Petrova
Courage is rightly considered the foremost of the virtues, for upon it, all others depend.
One who lacks courage to start has already finished
I dare to do all that may become a man: who dares do more is none.
When you meet your antagonist, do everything in a mild and agreeable manner. Let your courage be as keen, but at the same time as polished, as your sword.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
A man not perfect, but of heart so high, of such heroic rage, That even his hopes became a part of earth's eternal heritage.
Gilder, Richard Watson
Live as brave men and face adversity with stout hearts.
I'd rather give my life than be afraid to give it.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
For the man sound of body and serene of mind there is no such thing as bad weather; every day has its beauty, and storms which whip the blood do but make it pulse more vigorously.
Gissing, George Robert
In fighting and in everyday life you should be determined though calm. Meet the situation without tenseness yet not recklessly, your spirit settled yet unbiased. An elevated spirit is weak and a low spirit is weak. Do not let the enemy see your spirit.
True courage is a result of reasoning. A brave mind is always impregnable.
Part of courage is simple consistency.
The bravest thing you can do when you are not brave is to profess courage and act accordingly.
If men knew all that women think, they would be twenty times more daring.
Screw up your courage, you screwed up everything else.
Be courageous. I have seen many depressions in business. Always America has emerged from these stronger and more prosperous. Be brave as your fathers before you. Have faith! Go forward!
Edison, Thomas A.
What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
Gogh, Vincent Van
It is in great dangers that we see great courage.
Regnard, Jean Francois
Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God's approval.
Monson, Thomas S.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear.
Gallantry to women -- the sure road to their favor -- is nothing but the appearance of extreme devotion to all their wants and wishes, a delight in their satisfaction, and a confidence in yourself as being able to contribute toward it.
This is no time for ease and comfort. It is the time to dare and endure.
I thought ten thousand swords must have leaped from their scabbards to avenge even a look that threatened her with insult. But the age of chivalry is gone. That of sophists, economists and calculators has succeeded; and the glory of Europe is gone forever.
Much of what we call evil is due entirely to the way men take the phenomenon. It can so often be converted into a bracing and tonic good by a simple change of the sufferer's inner attitude from one of fear to one of fight; its string can so often depart and turn into a relish when, after vainly seeking to shun it, we agree to face about and bear it...
Stand up to crises. Don't let them throw you! Fight to stay calm... even surmount the crisis completely and turn it into an opportunity. Refuse to renounce your self-image. No matter what happens, you must keep your good opinion of yourself. No matter what happens, you must hold your past successes in your imagination, ready for showing in the motion picture screen of your mind. No matter what happens, no matter what you lose, no matter what failures you must endure, you must keep faith in yourself. Then you can stand up to crises, with calm and courage, refusing to buckle; then you will not fall through the floor. You will be able to support yourself.
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.
What a new face courage puts on everything!
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
