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.
Best Quotes about Courage
Courage conquers all things: it even gives strength to the body.
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
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.
I decided once and for all that I was going to make it or die.
In love, as in war, a fortress that parleys is half taken.
Have the courage of your desire.
Gissing, George Robert
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
Better to die on one's feet than to live on one's knees.
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.
To love someone deeply gives you strength. Being loved by someone deeply gives you courage.
We must have the courage to allow a little disorder in our lives.
A true knight is fuller of bravery in the midst, than in the beginning of danger.
Sidney, Sir Philip
Fortune and love favor the brave.
Pugnacity is a form of courage, but a very bad form.
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
Woman and men of retiring timidity are cowardly only in dangers which affect themselves, but the first to rescue when others are in danger.
Richter, Jean Paul
Some have been thought brave because they were afraid to run away.
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.
Bravery and stupidity go hand in hand.
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...
It is impossible to win the race unless you venture to run, impossible to win the victory unless you dare to battle.
DeVos, Richard M.
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.
Wealth lost is something lost, honor lost is something lost: Courage lost all is lost.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The scars you acquire while exercising courage will never make you feel inferior.
Live as brave men and face adversity with stout hearts.
Courage is not simply one of the virtues but the form of every virtue at the testing point, which means at the point of highest reality.
Lewis, C. S.
'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.
It takes courage to push yourself to places that you have never been before... to test your limits... to break through barriers. And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
True courage is like a kite; a contrary wind raises it higher.
Here I stand; I can do no other. God help me. Amen!
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.
Moral courage is a more rare commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence.
Kennedy, Robert F.
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.
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.
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
Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance.
The bravest thing you can do when you are not brave is to profess courage and act accordingly.
A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.
Life only demands from you the strength that you possess. Only one feat is possible; not to run away.
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.
Half a man's wisdom goes with his courage.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
A coward turns away, but a brave man's choice is danger.
If men knew all that women think, they would be twenty times more daring.
Courage is like love; it must have hope to nourish it.
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.
A person who walks in another's tracks leaves no footprints.
I am more important than my problems.
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.
Jean Paul Richter
The more wit the less courage.
Courage is an everyday thing. When we look reality squarely in the eye and refuse to back away from our awareness, we are living courage.
