Best Quotes about Courage
Real courage is when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.
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...
The human race afraid of nothing, rushes on through every crime.
Screw up your courage, you screwed up everything else.
It requires courage not to surrender oneself to the ingenious or compassionate counsels of despair that would induce a man to eliminate himself from the ranks of the living; but it does not follow from this that every huckster who is fattened and nourished in self-confidence has more courage than the man who yielded to despair.
Perfect courage is to do without witnesses what one would be capable of doing with the world looking on.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Courage -- a perfect sensibility of the measure of danger, and a mental willingness to endure it.
Sherman, William T.
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.
Courage stands halfway between cowardice and rashness, one of which is a lack, the other an excess of courage.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear.
I'm very brave generally, he went on in a low voice: only today I happen to have a headache.
Nothing recommends a man to the female mind than courage.
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.
If you stand up to be counted, someone will take your seat.
A coward turns away, but a brave man's choice is danger.
Correction does much, but encouragement does more. Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Courage consists not in hazarding without fear; but being resolutely minded in a just cause.
A great part of courage is the courage of having done the thing before.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
I never thought much of the courage of a lion tamer. Inside the cage he is at least safe from people.
Shaw, George Bernard
You cannot fly like an eagle with wings of a wren.
Hudson, William Henry
Though the practice of chivalry fell even more sadly short of its theoretic standard than practice generally falls below theory, it remains one of the most precious monuments of the moral history of our race, as a remarkable instance of a concerted and organized attempt by a most disorganized and distracted society, to raise up and carry into practice a moral ideal greatly in advance of its social condition and institutions; so much so as to have been completely frustrated in the main object, yet never entirely inefficacious, and which has left a most sensible, and for the most part a highly valuable impress on the ideas and feelings of all subsequent times.
Mill, John Stuart
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.
I thought ten thousand swords must have leaped from their scabbards to avenge even a look that threatened her with insult. But the age of chivalry is gone. That of sophists, economists and calculators has succeeded; and the glory of Europe is gone forever.
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.
Be bold-and mighty forces will come to your aid.
The world's male chivalry has perished out, but women are knights-errant to the last; and, if Cervantes had been greater still, he had made his Don a Donna.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Bravery and stupidity go hand in hand.
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.
Courage is rightly considered the foremost of the virtues, for upon it, all others depend.
The burden which is well borne becomes light.
We must have the courage to allow a little disorder in our lives.
Good courage in a bad affair is half of the evil overcome.
That's a valiant flea that dares eat his breakfast on the lip of a lion.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.
It shows a brave and resolute spirit not to be agitated in exciting circumstances.
Cicero, Marcus T.
It is amidst great perils we see brave hearts.
Regnard, Jean Francois
The real acid test of courage is to be just your honest self when everybody is trying to be like somebody else.
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.
This is no time for ease and comfort. It is the time to dare and endure.
If men knew all that women think, they would be twenty times more daring.
Courage is the ladder on which all the other virtues mount.
Clare Booth Luce
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
There is another side to chivalry. If it dispenses leniency, it may with equal justification invoke control.
Half a man's wisdom goes with his courage.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
There's no substitute for guts.
There are obstinate and unknown braves who defend themselves inch by inch in the shadows against the fatal invasion of want and turpitude. There are noble and mysterious triumphs which no eye sees. No renown rewards, and no flourish of trumpets salutes. Life, misfortune, isolation, abandonment, and poverty and battlefields which have their heroes.
It's better to be a lion for a day, than a sheep all your life.
Kenny, Sister Elizabeth
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.
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
