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...
Best Quotes about Courage
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
A coward turns away, but a brave man's choice is danger.
I am more important than my problems.
All my life I knew that there was all the money you could want out there. All you have to do is go after it.
If you stand up to be counted, someone will take your seat.
I would rather be a coward than brave because people hurt you when you are brave.
E. M. Forster
Here is the answer which I will give to President Roosevelt. Give us the tools, and we will finish the job.
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
Some have been thought brave because they were afraid to run away.
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!
Most of the high spots in our lives come about through encouragement. I don't care how great, how famous, how successful a man may be, he hungers for applause.
The brave and bold persist even against fortune; the timid and cowardly rush to despair though fear alone.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Do not fear, for those who are with us, are more than those who are with them. [2 Kings 6:16]
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
A person who walks in another's tracks leaves no footprints.
You cannot fly like an eagle with wings of a wren.
Hudson, William Henry
Because of a great love, one is courageous.
The brave don't live forever, but the cautious don't live at all. Here's to the brave!
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.
You've got to jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down.
It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
I would define true courage to be a perfect sensibility of the measure of danger, and a mental willingness to endure it.
Sherman, William T.
No man in the world has more courage than the man who can stop after eating one peanut.
No fact of human nature is more characteristic that its willingness to live on a chance.
If courage wasn't a standard result of aging, it meant that the young could somehow acquire it as well.
The bravest thing you can do when you are not brave is to profess courage and act accordingly.
True courage is not the brutal force of vulgar heroes. Rather the firm resolve of virtue and reason.
Whitehead, Alfred North
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.
Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.
Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
Bravery has no place where it can avail nothing.
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
Courage consists not in blindly overlooking danger, but in seeing it, and conquering it.
Richter, Jean Paul
Courage enlarges, cowardice diminishes resources. In desperate straits the fears of the timid aggravate the dangers that imperil the brave.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
Courage leads to heaven; fear leads to death.
We must have the courage to allow a little disorder in our lives.
Grant what thou commandest and then command what thou wilt.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear.
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare.
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.
'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
Courage is getting away from death by continually coming within an inch of it.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Correction does much, but encouragement does more. Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.
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
Courage charms us, because it indicates that a man loves an idea better than all things in the world, that he is thinking neither of his bed, nor his dinner, nor his money, but will venture all to put in act the invisible thought of his mind.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. [Ephesians 6:10]
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.
Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity.
Stone, W. Clement
