Best Quotes about Courage
There's no substitute for guts.
The world's male chivalry has perished out, but women are knights-errant to the last; and, if Cervantes had been greater still, he had made his Don a Donna.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
No more turning away from the weak and the weary. No more turning away from the coldness inside. Just a world that we all must share. It's not enough just to stand and stare. Is it only a dream that there'll be no more turning away.
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 .
A lot of people do not muster the courage to live their dreams because they are afraid to 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!
Let people go all the way if they have got the balls for it.
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.
A coward turns away, but a brave man's choice is danger.
Courage follows action.
Douglas, Mack R.
Most of the high spots in our lives come about through encouragement. I don't care how great, how famous, how successful a man may be, he hungers for applause.
Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance.
Correction does much, but encouragement does more. Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
But you be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work. [ 2 Chronicles 15:7]
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.
It's better to be a lion for a day, than a sheep all your life.
Kenny, Sister Elizabeth
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
Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others.
Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God's approval.
Monson, Thomas S.
We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.
King Jr. Martin Luther
Father, may these people have the vision to see, the faith to accept the truth, the courage to stand by that which they know is right.
Half a man's wisdom goes with his courage.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
It is a blessed thing that in every age some one has had the individuality enough and courage enough to stand by his own convictions.
Ingersoll, Robert Green
No fact of human nature is more characteristic that its willingness to live on a chance.
The human race afraid of nothing, rushes on through every crime.
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
Nothing gives a fearful man more courage than another's fear.
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare.
Courage consists not in hazarding without fear; but being resolutely minded in a just cause.
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
Fortune and love favor the brave.
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.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.
More firm and sure the hand of courage strikes, when it obeys the watchful eye of caution.
You are under the unfortunate delusion that simply because you run away from danger, you have no courage. You're confusing courage with wisdom.
Perfect courage is to do without witnesses what one would be capable of doing with the world looking on.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
And what he greatly thought, he nobly dared.
Courage is the ladder on which all the other virtues mount.
Clare Booth Luce
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid... for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
We need to find the courage to say NO to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.
Angelis, Barbara De
The courage we desire and prize is not the courage to die decently, but to live manfully.
I decided once and for all that I was going to make it or die.
Fortune can take away riches, but not courage.
Courage is a quality so necessary for maintaining virtue, that it is always respected, even when it is associated with vice.
Many would be cowards if they had courage enough.
That's a valiant flea that dares eat his breakfast on the lip of a lion.
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
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
True courage is a result of reasoning. A brave mind is always impregnable.
Courage is like love; it must have hope to nourish it.
