Best Quotes about Courage
Courage enlarges, cowardice diminishes resources. In desperate straits the fears of the timid aggravate the dangers that imperil the brave.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
I decided once and for all that I was going to make it or die.
Life becomes real only when we begin to face and solve our own problems. Until then we only swim in circles in a large fantasy world which tends to make us very tired of living. Don't waste energy! Face life now!
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.
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.
Anybody with a little guts and the desire to apply himself can make it, he can make anything he wants to make of himself.
What you have outside you counts less than what you have inside you.
Forbes, B. C.
Nothing recommends a man to the female mind than courage.
'Tis much he dares; and, to that dauntless temper of his mind, he hath a wisdom that doth guide his valour to act in safety.
Courage brother, do not stumble, though thy path be dark as night: There is a star to guide the humble, Trust in God, and do the right. Let the road be dark and dreary and its end far out of sight. Face it bravely, strong or weary. Trust in God, and do the right.
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.
We are very much what others think of us. The reception our observations meet with gives us courage to proceed, or damps our efforts.
To boldly go where no man has gone before.
TV series, Star Trek
Moral courage is a more rare commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence.
Kennedy, Robert F.
No man in the world has more courage than the man who can stop after eating one peanut.
We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.
King Jr. Martin Luther
Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
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.
I dare to do all that may become a man: who dares do more is none.
You take a number of small steps which you believe are right, thinking maybe tomorrow somebody will treat this as a dangerous provocation. And then you wait. If there is no reaction, you take another step: courage is only an accumulation of small steps.
Half a man's wisdom goes with his courage.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
You are under the unfortunate delusion that simply because you run away from danger, you have no courage. You're confusing courage with wisdom.
Courage is the ladder on which all the other virtues mount.
Clare Booth Luce
The spirited horse, which will try to win the race of its own accord, will run even faster if encouraged.
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
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 wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion. [Proverbs 28:1]
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
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare.
Do not fear, for those who are with us, are more than those who are with them. [2 Kings 6:16]
Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the danger of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of crackpot than the stigma of conformity.
Watson, Thomas J.
If courage wasn't a standard result of aging, it meant that the young could somehow acquire it as well.
Whether you be man or woman you will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.
Let bravery be thy choice, but not bravado.
The test of tolerance comes when we are in a majority; the test of courage comes when we are in a minority.
Stockman, Ralph W.
Courage is the capacity to confirm what can be imagined.
Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God's approval.
Monson, Thomas S.
Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. [Ephesians 6:10]
You cannot fly like an eagle with wings of a wren.
Hudson, William Henry
More firm and sure the hand of courage strikes, when it obeys the watchful eye of caution.
But you be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work. [ 2 Chronicles 15:7]
He that would be superior to external influences must first become superior to his own passions.
Have courage for the great sorrows of life, and patience for the small ones. When you have laboriously accomplished your daily tasks, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.
If we must fall, we should boldly meet the danger.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
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 is being scared to death - but saddling up anyway.
Stride forward with a firm, steady step knowing with a deep, certain inner knowing that you will reach every goal you set yourselves, that you will achieve every aim .
Never ask the Gods for life set free from grief, but ask for courage that endureth long.
Menander of Athens
Courage leads to heaven; fear leads to death.
Wealth lost is something lost, honor lost is something lost: Courage lost all is lost.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
