Best Quotes about Courage
The real acid test of courage is to be just your honest self when everybody is trying to be like somebody else.
Physical courage, which engages all danger, will make a person brave in one way; and moral courage, which defies all opinion, will make a person brave in another.
Colton, Charles Caleb
The brave don't live forever, but the cautious don't live at all. Here's to the brave!
He either fears his fate too much, Or his deserts are small, That dares not put it to the touch, To gain or lose it all.
This is no time for ease and comfort. It is the time to dare and endure.
I'd rather give my life than be afraid to give it.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
Success is never final and failure is never fatal. It's courage that counts.
Courage and conviction are powerful weapons against an enemy who depends only on fists or guns. Animals know when you are afraid; a coward knows when you are not.
What you have outside you counts less than what you have inside you.
Forbes, B. C.
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
I'm very brave generally, he went on in a low voice: only today I happen to have a headache.
With courage you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate and the wisdom to be humble. Courage is the foundation of integrity.
Courage consists in equality to the problem before us.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Courage enlarges, cowardice diminishes resources. In desperate straits the fears of the timid aggravate the dangers that imperil the brave.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
Some have been thought brave because they were afraid to run away.
We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.
King Jr. Martin Luther
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.
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]
Courage and modesty are the most unequivocal of virtues, for they are of a kind that hypocrisy cannot imitate; they too have this quality in common, that they are expressed by the same color.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
It's better to be a lion for a day, than a sheep all your life.
Kenny, Sister Elizabeth
Don't foul, don't flinch. Hit the line hard.
It takes courage to push yourself to places that you have never been before... to test your limits... to break through barriers. And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
In love, as in war, a fortress that parleys is half taken.
Be bold-and mighty forces will come to your aid.
'Tis easy enough to be pleasant, When life flows along like a song; But the man worth while is the one who will smile when everything goes dead wrong.
Wilcox, Ella Wheeler
To have courage for whatever comes in life -- everything lies in that.
Teresa of Avila, St.
We need to find the courage to say NO to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.
Angelis, Barbara De
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
We must have the courage to allow a little disorder in our lives.
The scars you acquire while exercising courage will never make you feel inferior.
He that would be superior to external influences must first become superior to his own passions.
It takes vision and courage to create -- it takes faith and courage to prove.
Young, Owen D.
No man in the world has more courage than the man who can stop after eating one peanut.
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.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me. [Philippians 4:13]
Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare the truth thou hast, that all may share; Be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare.
Fortune favors the brave.
Courage charms us, because it indicates that a man loves an idea better than all things in the world, that he is thinking neither of his bed, nor his dinner, nor his money, but will venture all to put in act the invisible thought of his mind.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
There's no substitute for guts.
I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.
A great deal of talent is lost in the world for want of courage.
I've been through it all, baby. I'm Mother Courage.
Pugnacity is a form of courage, but a very bad form.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterwards.
Richter, Jean Paul
The human race afraid of nothing, rushes on through every crime.
Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God's approval.
Monson, Thomas S.
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.
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
No matter how carefully you plan your goals they will never be more than pipe dreams unless you pursue them with gusto.
Stone, W. Clement
