Best Quotes about Courage
If courage wasn't a standard result of aging, it meant that the young could somehow acquire it as well.
Courage is the capacity to confirm what can be imagined.
Most men have more courage than even they themselves think they have.
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
There are times to cultivate and create, when you nurture your world and give birth to new ideas and ventures. There are times of flourishing and abundance, when life feels in full bloom, energized and expanding. And there are times of fruition, when things come to an end. They have reached their climax and must be harvested before they begin to fade. And finally of course, there are times that are cold, and cutting and empty, times when the spring of new beginnings seems like a distant dream. Those rhythms in life are natural events. They weave into one another as day follows night, bringing, not messages of hope and fear, but messages of how things are.
The only courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one moment to the next.
True courage is cool and calm. The bravest of men have the least of a brutal, bullying insolence, and in the very time of danger are found the most serene and free.
You have to be tough.
The human race afraid of nothing, rushes on through every crime.
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.
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.
Kennedy, John F.
A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.
A man of courage is also full of faith.
Cicero, Marcus T.
When you meet your antagonist, do everything in a mild and agreeable manner. Let your courage be as keen, but at the same time as polished, as your sword.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
Do not fear, for those who are with us, are more than those who are with them. [2 Kings 6:16]
Live as brave men; and if fortune is adverse, front its blows with brave hearts.
Nothing recommends a man to the female mind than courage.
Courage is not the towering oak that sees storms come and go; it is the fragile blossom that opens in the snow.
Swaim, Alice Mackenzie
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...
To have courage for whatever comes in life -- everything lies in that.
Teresa of Avila, St.
I am convinced that one of the biggest factors in success is the courage to undertake something.
Worsham, James A.
I'd rather give my life than be afraid to give it.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.
Jean Paul Richter
He either fears his fate too much, Or his deserts are small, That dares not put it to the touch, To gain or lose it all.
Bravery has no place where it can avail nothing.
True courage is like a kite; a contrary wind raises it higher.
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.
The courage we desire and prize is not the courage to die decently, but to live manfully.
More firm and sure the hand of courage strikes, when it obeys the watchful eye of caution.
The scars you acquire while exercising courage will never make you feel inferior.
But you be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work. [ 2 Chronicles 15:7]
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.
You are merely not feeling equal to the tasks before you.
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.
The spirited horse, which will try to win the race of its own accord, will run even faster if encouraged.
In fighting and in everyday life you should be determined though calm. Meet the situation without tenseness yet not recklessly, your spirit settled yet unbiased. An elevated spirit is weak and a low spirit is weak. Do not let the enemy see your spirit.
It is in great dangers that we see great courage.
Regnard, Jean Francois
Good courage in a bad affair is half of the evil overcome.
It is easy to fly into a passion... anybody can do that, but to be angry with the right person to the right extent and at the right time and in the right way that is not easy.
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.
I am more important than my problems.
Many would be cowards if they had courage enough.
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 have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.
It's better to be a lion for a day, than a sheep all your life.
Kenny, Sister Elizabeth
I never thought much of the courage of a lion tamer. Inside the cage he is at least safe from people.
Shaw, George Bernard
You are under the unfortunate delusion that simply because you run away from danger, you have no courage. You're confusing courage with wisdom.
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
A person who walks in another's tracks leaves no footprints.
