Best Quotes about Courage
I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.
Fortune can take away riches, but not courage.
One who lacks courage to start has already finished
That's a valiant flea that dares eat his breakfast on the lip of a lion.
As a rock on the seashore he standeth firm, and the dashing of the waves disturbeth him not. He raiseth his head like a tower on a hill, and the arrows of fortune drop at his feet. In the instant of danger, the courage of his heart here, and scorn to fly.
And what he greatly thought, he nobly dared.
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 helps the brave.
The acorn becomes an oak by means of automatic growth; no commitment is necessary. The kitten similarly becomes a cat on the basis of instinct. Nature and being are identical in creatures like them. But a man or woman becomes fully human only by his or her choices and his or her commitment to them. People attain worth and dignity by the multitude of decisions they make from day by day. These decisions require 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
The brave and bold persist even against fortune; the timid and cowardly rush to despair though fear alone.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
The spirited horse, which will try to win the race of its own accord, will run even faster if encouraged.

Schuller, Robert H.
Correction does much, but encouragement does more. Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Part of courage is simple consistency.
You are under the unfortunate delusion that simply because you run away from danger, you have no courage. You're confusing courage with wisdom.
I decided once and for all that I was going to make it or die.
With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. [Psalms 18:29]
We are very much what others think of us. The reception our observations meet with gives us courage to proceed, or damps our efforts.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.
Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.
If we must fall, we should boldly meet the danger.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
What a new face courage puts on everything!
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.
Beaton, Sir Cecil
Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others.
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid... for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
Many would be cowards if they had courage enough.
A man of courage is also full of faith.
Cicero, Marcus T.
No man in the world has more courage than the man who can stop after eating one peanut.
No one reaches a high position without daring.
The beauty of the soul shines out when a man bears with composure one heavy mischance after another, not because he does not feel them, but because he is a man of high and heroic temper.
The ideas that have lighted my way and, time after time, have given me new courage to face life cheerfully have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth.
No one can be brave who considers pain to be the greatest evil in life, or can they be temperate who considers pleasure to be the highest good.
Cicero, Marcus T.
There is another side to chivalry. If it dispenses leniency, it may with equal justification invoke control.
But you be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work. [ 2 Chronicles 15:7]
Courage -- a perfect sensibility of the measure of danger, and a mental willingness to endure it.
Sherman, William T.
He who dies before many witnesses always does so with courage.
It is impossible to win the race unless you venture to run, impossible to win the victory unless you dare to battle.
DeVos, Richard M.

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.

Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
