Best Quotes about Courage
It takes courage to attempt the impossible. What would we think of Moses today if when it was time to part the red sea, he had said Why don't you guys go build a bridge?
The brave and bold persist even against fortune; the timid and cowardly rush to despair though fear alone.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
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...
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 and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
John Quincy Adams
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.
It is in great dangers that we see great courage.
Regnard, Jean Francois
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.
Courage consists in equality to the problem before us.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
Courage -- a perfect sensibility of the measure of danger, and a mental willingness to endure it.
Sherman, William T.
It takes a certain courage and a certain greatness to be truly base.
You are under the unfortunate delusion that simply because you run away from danger, you have no courage. You're confusing courage with wisdom.
Part of courage is simple consistency.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.
I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.
Nothing gives a fearful man more courage than another's fear.
Courage consists not in blindly overlooking danger, but in seeing it, and conquering it.
Richter, Jean Paul
It takes vision and courage to create -- it takes faith and courage to prove.
Young, Owen D.
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
Like a boxer in a title fight, you have to walk in that ring alone.
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.
A true knight is fuller of bravery in the midst, than in the beginning of danger.
Sidney, Sir Philip
Act boldly and unseen forces will come to your aid.
We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.
King Jr. Martin Luther
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
Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
Have the courage of your desire.
Gissing, George Robert
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.
In love, as in war, a fortress that parleys is half taken.
Courage is acting in spite of fear.
Hunter, Howard W.
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.
If men knew all that women think, they would be twenty times more daring.
Courage and modesty are the most unequivocal of virtues, for they are of a kind that hypocrisy cannot imitate; they too have this quality in common, that they are expressed by the same color.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Live as brave men and face adversity with stout hearts.
The scars you acquire while exercising courage will never make you feel inferior.
Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.
Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. [Ephesians 6:10]
No matter how carefully you plan your goals they will never be more than pipe dreams unless you pursue them with gusto.
Stone, W. Clement
Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.
It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
Rest not. Life is sweeping by; go and dare before you die. Something mighty and sublime, leave behind to conquer time.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Courage consists not in hazarding without fear; but being resolutely minded in a just cause.
We are very much what others think of us. The reception our observations meet with gives us courage to proceed, or damps our efforts.
It requires courage not to surrender oneself to the ingenious or compassionate counsels of despair that would induce a man to eliminate himself from the ranks of the living; but it does not follow from this that every huckster who is fattened and nourished in self-confidence has more courage than the man who yielded to despair.
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
A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.
Nothing recommends a man to the female mind than courage.
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.
