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.
There is another side to chivalry. If it dispenses leniency, it may with equal justification invoke control.
For the man sound of body and serene of mind there is no such thing as bad weather; every day has its beauty, and storms which whip the blood do but make it pulse more vigorously.
Gissing, George Robert
A great part of courage is the courage of having done the thing before.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
It's better to be a lion for a day, than a sheep all your life.
Kenny, Sister Elizabeth
Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.
Correction does much, but encouragement does more. Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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]
No man in the world has more courage than the man who can stop after eating one peanut.
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
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 curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare.
Courage is acting in spite of fear.
Hunter, Howard W.
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
Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others.
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.
It shows a brave and resolute spirit not to be agitated in exciting circumstances.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Courage and conviction are powerful weapons against an enemy who depends only on fists or guns. Animals know when you are afraid; a coward knows when you are not.
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.
Because of a great love, one is courageous.
Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God's approval.
Monson, Thomas S.
I think of those who were truly great. The names of those who in their lives fought for life, Who wore at their hearts the fire's center.
The finest gift you can give anyone is encouragement. Yet, almost no one gets the encouragement they need to grow to their full potential. If everyone received the encouragement they need to grow, the genius in most everyone would blossom and the world would produce abundance beyond the wildest dreams. We would have more than one Einstein, Edison, Schweitzer, Mother Theresa, Dr. Salk and other great minds in a century.
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.
We are very much what others think of us. The reception our observations meet with gives us courage to proceed, or damps our efforts.
Here is the answer which I will give to President Roosevelt. Give us the tools, and we will finish the job.
The more thou dost advance, the more thy feet pitfalls will meet. The Path that leadeth on is lighted by one fire -- the light of daring burning in the heart. The more one dares, the more he shall obtain. The more he fears, the more that light shall pale
Blavatsky, Helena Petrova
With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. [Psalms 18:29]
Part of courage is simple consistency.
I've been through it all, baby. I'm Mother Courage.
Courage means to keep working a relationship, to continue seeking solutions to difficult problems, and to stay focused during stressful periods.
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
John Quincy Adams
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
Wealth lost is something lost, honor lost is something lost: Courage lost all is lost.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Success is never final and failure is never fatal. It's courage that counts.
This is no time for ease and comfort. It is the time to dare and endure.
Some have been thought brave because they didn't have the courage to run away.
The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion. [Proverbs 28:1]
You cannot fly like an eagle with wings of a wren.
Hudson, William Henry
It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.
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.
Courage follows action.
Douglas, Mack R.
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 going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
Real courage is when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.
The brave don't live forever, but the cautious don't live at all. Here's to the brave!
A true knight is fuller of bravery in the midst, than in the beginning of danger.
Sidney, Sir Philip
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.
That's a valiant flea that dares eat his breakfast on the lip of a lion.
