Best Quotes about Courage
Courage is not limited to the battlefield or the Indianapolis 500 or bravely catching a thief in your house. The real tests of courage are much quieter. They are the inner tests, like remaining faithful when nobody's looking, like enduring pain when the room is empty, like standing alone when you're misunderstood.
What you RESIST, PERSISTS. If you take ownership and deal with things that are bothering you, then, in the very process of dealing with them they very often will go away.
And what he greatly thought, he nobly dared.
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

Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion. [Proverbs 28:1]

I would define true courage to be a perfect sensibility of the measure of danger, and a mental willingness to endure it.
Sherman, William T.
Courage is spelled I-N-T-E-G-R-I-T-Y.
Schuller, Robert H.
Have the courage of your desire.
Gissing, George Robert
Success is never final and failure is never fatal. It's courage that counts.
Bravery and stupidity go hand in hand.
The only courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one moment to the next.
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.
Jean Paul Richter

Cicero, Marcus T.
Nothing gives a fearful man more courage than another's fear.
Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke.
To have courage for whatever comes in life -- everything lies in that.
Teresa of Avila, St.
Anybody with a little guts and the desire to apply himself can make it, he can make anything he wants to make of himself.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.

There are obstinate and unknown braves who defend themselves inch by inch in the shadows against the fatal invasion of want and turpitude. There are noble and mysterious triumphs which no eye sees. No renown rewards, and no flourish of trumpets salutes. Life, misfortune, isolation, abandonment, and poverty and battlefields which have their heroes.
