It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare.
Be bold-and mighty forces will come to your aid.
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
The more wit the less courage.
Courage stands halfway between cowardice and rashness, one of which is a lack, the other an excess of courage.
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.
You are merely not feeling equal to the tasks before you.
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.
A lot of people do not muster the courage to live their dreams because they are afraid to die.

Kennedy, Robert F.
Courage consists in equality to the problem before us.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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...
The worst thing of all is standing by when folks are doing something wrong.
Do not fear, for those who are with us, are more than those who are with them. [2 Kings 6:16]
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.
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.
It takes vision and courage to create -- it takes faith and courage to prove.
Young, Owen D.
If we must fall, we should boldly meet the danger.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others.
Half a man's wisdom goes with his courage.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
He that would be superior to external influences must first become superior to his own passions.
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
Courage is the art of being the only one who knows you're scared to death.
Courage is not simply one of the virtues but the form of every virtue at the testing point, which means at the point of highest reality.
Lewis, C. S.
In love, as in war, a fortress that parleys is half taken.
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
The strangest, most generous, and proudest of all virtues is true courage.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Like a boxer in a title fight, you have to walk in that ring alone.
I advise you to say your dream is possible and then overcome all inconveniences, ignore all the hassles and take a running leap through the hoop, even if it is in flames.
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
John Quincy Adams
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
I decided once and for all that I was going to make it or die.
It shows a brave and resolute spirit not to be agitated in exciting circumstances.
Cicero, Marcus T.
If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold you head high, look it squarely in the eye and say, I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.
You have to be tough.
Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare the truth thou hast, that all may share; Be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare.
