Best Quotes about Courage
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!
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.
It's better to be a lion for a day, than a sheep all your life.
Kenny, Sister Elizabeth

Courage leads to heaven; fear leads to death.
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.
All brave men love; for he only is brave who has affections to fight for, whether in the daily battle of life, or in physical contests.
Is he alone who has courage on his right hand and faith on his left hand?
Lindbergh, Charles A.
Keep courage. Whatever you do, do not feel sorry for yourself. You will win in a great age of opportunity.
Evans, Richard L.
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
But screw your courage to the sticking-place and we'll not fail.
If we have the courage and tenacity of our forebears, who stood firmly like a rock against the lash of slavery, we shall find a way to do for our day what they did for theirs.
Bethune, Mary Mcleod
Some have been thought brave because they were afraid to run away.
The pressure of adversity does not affect the mind of the brave man. It is more powerful than external circumstances.
Though the practice of chivalry fell even more sadly short of its theoretic standard than practice generally falls below theory, it remains one of the most precious monuments of the moral history of our race, as a remarkable instance of a concerted and organized attempt by a most disorganized and distracted society, to raise up and carry into practice a moral ideal greatly in advance of its social condition and institutions; so much so as to have been completely frustrated in the main object, yet never entirely inefficacious, and which has left a most sensible, and for the most part a highly valuable impress on the ideas and feelings of all subsequent times.
Mill, John Stuart
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear.
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.

The brave man inattentive to his duty, is worth little more to his country than the coward who deserts in the hour of danger.
It shows a brave and resolute spirit not to be agitated in exciting circumstances.
Cicero, Marcus T.
A great part of courage is the courage of having done the thing before.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
We are very much what others think of us. The reception our observations meet with gives us courage to proceed, or damps our efforts.
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 .
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.
Moral courage is a more rare commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence.
Kennedy, Robert F.
'Tis easy enough to be pleasant, When life flows along like a song; But the man worth while is the one who will smile when everything goes dead wrong.
Wilcox, Ella Wheeler
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.
Good courage in a bad affair is half of the evil overcome.

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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.
Courage stands halfway between cowardice and rashness, one of which is a lack, the other an excess of courage.
The courage of life is often a less dramatic spectacle than the courage of the final moment; but it is no less a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy.

Be bold-and mighty forces will come to your aid.
We must have the courage to allow a little disorder in our lives.
Courage is acting in spite of fear.
Hunter, Howard W.
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.
Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
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.
If you stand up to be counted, someone will take your seat.
The scars you acquire while exercising courage will never make you feel inferior.
