The brave man inattentive to his duty, is worth little more to his country than the coward who deserts in the hour of danger.
Best Quotes about Courage
What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
Gogh, Vincent Van
If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold you head high, look it squarely in the eye and say, I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.
Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.
A great deal of talent is lost in the world for want of courage.
Nothing gives a fearful man more courage than another's fear.
Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others.
What you have outside you counts less than what you have inside you.
Forbes, B. C.
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.
Never ask the Gods for life set free from grief, but ask for courage that endureth long.
Menander of Athens
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
I'm very brave generally, he went on in a low voice: only today I happen to have a headache.
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?
Be bold-and mighty forces will come to your aid.
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.
Courage enlarges, cowardice diminishes resources. In desperate straits the fears of the timid aggravate the dangers that imperil the brave.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace. The soul that knows it not, knows no release from little things; knows not the livid loneliness of fear.
Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. [Ephesians 6:10]
Quit thinking that you must halt before the barrier of inner negativity. You need not. You can crash through whatever we see a negative state, that is where we can destroy it.
'Tis easy enough to be pleasant, When life flows along like a song; But the man worth while is the one who will smile when everything goes dead wrong.
Wilcox, Ella Wheeler
If men knew all that women think, they would be twenty times more daring.
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.
I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.
I would rather be a coward than brave because people hurt you when you are brave.
E. M. Forster
Noah was a brave man to sail in a wooden boat with two termites.
To have courage for whatever comes in life -- everything lies in that.
Teresa of Avila, St.
Whether you be man or woman you will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.
Courage is rightly considered the foremost of the virtues, for upon it, all others depend.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me. [Philippians 4:13]
Wealth lost is something lost, honor lost is something lost: Courage lost all is lost.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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 real acid test of courage is to be just your honest self when everybody is trying to be like somebody else.
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
Until the day of his death, no man can be sure of his courage.
The courage we desire and prize is not the courage to die decently, but to live manfully.
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!
Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare the truth thou hast, that all may share; Be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare.
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.
We are made strong by the difficulties we face not by those we evade.
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare.
Do not fear, for those who are with us, are more than those who are with them. [2 Kings 6:16]
Courage means to keep working a relationship, to continue seeking solutions to difficult problems, and to stay focused during stressful periods.
With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. [Psalms 18:29]
Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
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
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
Fortune favors the brave.
The acorn becomes an oak by means of automatic growth; no commitment is necessary. The kitten similarly becomes a cat on the basis of instinct. Nature and being are identical in creatures like them. But a man or woman becomes fully human only by his or her choices and his or her commitment to them. People attain worth and dignity by the multitude of decisions they make from day by day. These decisions require courage.
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.
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
Bravery and stupidity go hand in hand.
