Courage

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 Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Courage

1.
You've got to jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down.
Bradbury, Ray

2.
Courage is the capacity to confirm what can be imagined.
Rosten, Leo

3.
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare.
Twain, Mark

4.
Be bold-and mighty forces will come to your aid.
King, Basil

5.
This is the test of your manhood: How much is there left in you after you have lost everything outside of yourself?
Marden, Orison Swett

6.
The more wit the less courage.
Fuller, Thomas

7.
Courage stands halfway between cowardice and rashness, one of which is a lack, the other an excess of courage.
Plutarch

8.
Courage that grows from constitution often forsakes a man when he has occasion for it; courage which arises from a sense of duty acts ;in a uniform manner.
Addison, Joseph

9.
You are merely not feeling equal to the tasks before you.
Carnegie, Dale

10.
Courage is sometimes frail as hope is frail: a fragile shoot between two stones that grows brave toward the sun though warmth and brightness fail, striving and faith the only strength it knows.
Rodman, Frances

11.
A lot of people do not muster the courage to live their dreams because they are afraid to die.
Brown, Les

12.
Courage is a quality so necessary for maintaining virtue, that it is always respected, even when it is associated with vice.
Johnson, Samuel

13.
Anybody with a little guts and the desire to apply himself can make it, he can make anything he wants to make of himself.
Shoemaker, Willie

14.
If you stand up to be counted, someone will take your seat.

15.
Moral courage is a more rare commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence.
Kennedy, Robert F.

16.
Courage consists in equality to the problem before us.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

17.
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

18.
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.
Nin, Anais

19.
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.
May, Rollo

20.
He who loses wealth loses much; he who loses a friend loses more; but he that loses his courage loses all.
Cervantes, Miguel De

Good courage in a bad affair is half of the evil overcome.
Plaut

22.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me. [Philippians 4:13]

This is no time for ease and comfort. It is the time to dare and endure.
Churchill, Winston

24.
Courage is the capacity to conduct oneself with restraint in times of prosperity and with courage and tenacity when things do not go well.
Forrestal, James V.

25.
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...
James, William

26.
The worst thing of all is standing by when folks are doing something wrong.
Kirby Larson

27.
Do not fear, for those who are with us, are more than those who are with them. [2 Kings 6:16]
Bible

28.
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.
Hill, Aaron

29.
All my life I knew that there was all the money you could want out there. All you have to do is go after it.
Carlson, Curtis

30.
It takes vision and courage to create -- it takes faith and courage to prove.
Young, Owen D.

31.
If we must fall, we should boldly meet the danger.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

32.
Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others.
Churchill, Winston

33.
Half a man's wisdom goes with his courage.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
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.

35.
He that would be superior to external influences must first become superior to his own passions.
Johnson, Samuel

36.
The most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.
Coubertin, Baron Pierre De

37.
Courage is the art of being the only one who knows you're scared to death.
