Best Quotes about Courage
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.
Discoveries are often made by not following instructions, by going off the main road, by trying the untried.
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 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.
Courage is getting away from death by continually coming within an inch of it.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
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.
Private bravery is often the price of personal victory.
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.
Courage is a special kind of knowledge: the knowledge of how to fear what ought to be feared and how not to fear what ought no to be feared.
Wealth lost is something lost, honor lost is something lost: Courage lost all is lost.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
Gallantry to women -- the sure road to their favor -- is nothing but the appearance of extreme devotion to all their wants and wishes, a delight in their satisfaction, and a confidence in yourself as being able to contribute toward it.
Give us the fortitude to endure the things which cannot be changed, and the courage to change the things which should be changed, ;and the wisdom to know one from the other.
Hart, Oliver J.
That's a valiant flea that dares eat his breakfast on the lip of a lion.
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
If we must fall, we should boldly meet the danger.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Let bravery be thy choice, but not bravado.
Courage is the art of being the only one who knows you're scared to death.
At the bottom of not a little of the bravery that appears in the world, there lurks a miserable cowardice. Men will face powder and steel because they have not the courage to face public opinion.
Chapin, Edwin Hubbel
Do not fear, for those who are with us, are more than those who are with them. [2 Kings 6:16]
Success is never final and failure is never fatal. It's courage that counts.
We are very much what others think of us. The reception our observations meet with gives us courage to proceed, or damps our efforts.
I decided once and for all that I was going to make it or die.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. [Joshua 1:9]
The brave man inattentive to his duty, is worth little more to his country than the coward who deserts in the hour of danger.
Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke.
Courage stands halfway between cowardice and rashness, one of which is a lack, the other an excess of courage.
I am more important than my problems.
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
We are made strong by the difficulties we face not by those we evade.
Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I may not forget you.
Stand up to crises. Don't let them throw you! Fight to stay calm... even surmount the crisis completely and turn it into an opportunity. Refuse to renounce your self-image. No matter what happens, you must keep your good opinion of yourself. No matter what happens, you must hold your past successes in your imagination, ready for showing in the motion picture screen of your mind. No matter what happens, no matter what you lose, no matter what failures you must endure, you must keep faith in yourself. Then you can stand up to crises, with calm and courage, refusing to buckle; then you will not fall through the floor. You will be able to support yourself.
We must have the courage to allow a little disorder in our lives.
He who loses wealth loses much; he who loses a friend loses more; but he that loses his courage loses all.
Cervantes, Miguel De
You cannot fly like an eagle with wings of a wren.
Hudson, William Henry
Write on your doors the saying wise and old. Be bold! and everywhere -- Be bold; Be not too bold! Yet better the excess Than the defect; better the more than less sustaineth him and the steadiness of his mind beareth him out.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
And what he greatly thought, he nobly dared.
Here I stand; I can do no other. God help me. Amen!
'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.
Fortune helps the brave.
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 .
The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion. [Proverbs 28:1]
Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity.
Stone, W. Clement
We can never be certain of our courage until we have faced danger.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterwards.
Richter, Jean Paul
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
Gogh, Vincent Van
