Best Quotes about Courage
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.
Jean Paul Richter
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.
The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion. [Proverbs 28:1]
Pugnacity is a form of courage, but a very bad form.
Correction does much, but encouragement does more. Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The brave and bold persist even against fortune; the timid and cowardly rush to despair though fear alone.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
It is amidst great perils we see brave hearts.
Regnard, Jean Francois
Some have been thought brave because they didn't have the courage to run away.
Grant what thou commandest and then command what thou wilt.
Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
When valour preys on reason, it eats the sword it fights with.
It is in great dangers that we see great courage.
Regnard, Jean Francois
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.
Anybody with a little guts and the desire to apply himself can make it, he can make anything he wants to make of himself.
It takes vision and courage to create -- it takes faith and courage to prove.
Young, Owen D.
Don't foul, don't flinch. Hit the line hard.
The ideas that have lighted my way and, time after time, have given me new courage to face life cheerfully have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth.
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.
If we must fall, we should boldly meet the danger.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare the truth thou hast, that all may share; Be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare.
The brave don't live forever, but the cautious don't live at all. Here's to the brave!
More firm and sure the hand of courage strikes, when it obeys the watchful eye of caution.
Until the day of his death, no man can be sure of his courage.
To boldly go where no man has gone before.
TV series, Star Trek
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.
A coward turns away, but a brave man's choice is danger.
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.
The courage we desire and prize is not the courage to die decently, but to live manfully.
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 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.
There's no substitute for guts.
Bravery and stupidity go hand in hand.
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
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.
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
Have the courage of your desire.
Gissing, George Robert
Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance.
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid... for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
He that would be superior to external influences must first become superior to his own passions.
I never thought much of the courage of a lion tamer. Inside the cage he is at least safe from people.
Shaw, George Bernard
Courage is sometimes frail as hope is frail: a fragile shoot between two stones that grows brave toward the sun though warmth and brightness fail, striving and faith the only strength it knows.
Live as brave men and face adversity with stout hearts.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.
No one can be brave who considers pain to be the greatest evil in life, or can they be temperate who considers pleasure to be the highest good.
Cicero, Marcus T.
We must have the courage to allow a little disorder in our lives.
You've got to jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down.
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.
Perfect courage is to do without witnesses what one would be capable of doing with the world looking on.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
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.
