Courage Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Courage

1.
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

2.
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

Chesterton, Gilbert K.

4.
Because of a great love, one is courageous.
Lao-Tzu

5.
Courage leads to heaven; fear leads to death.
Seneca

6.
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.
Hill, Aaron

7.
A strong man and a waterfall always channel their own path.

8.
He that would be superior to external influences must first become superior to his own passions.
Johnson, Samuel

9.
The test of tolerance comes when we are in a majority; the test of courage comes when we are in a minority.
Stockman, Ralph W.

10.
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

11.
If you stand up to be counted, someone will take your seat.

12.
You have to be tough.
Ditka, Mike

13.
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

14.
When valour preys on reason, it eats the sword it fights with.
William Shakespeare

15.
What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
Gogh, Vincent Van

16.
He who dies before many witnesses always does so with courage.
Voltaire

17.
Act boldly and unseen forces will come to your aid.
Brande, Dorothea

18.
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.
Jean Paul Richter

19.
The only courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one moment to the next.
Mignon McLaughlin

20.
Courage is the art of being the only one who knows you're scared to death.
Harold Wilson

21.
No man in the world has more courage than the man who can stop after eating one peanut.
Pollock, Channing

22.
You've got to jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down.
Bradbury, Ray

23.
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.

24.
Have the courage of your desire.
Gissing, George Robert

25.
The strangest, most generous, and proudest of all virtues is true courage.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

26.
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

27.
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.
Mark Twain

28.
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
Disney, Walt

29.
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.

30.
True courage is a result of reasoning. A brave mind is always impregnable.
Collier, Jeremy

31.
Screw up your courage, you screwed up everything else.
Smith, Donald

32.
It's better to be a lion for a day, than a sheep all your life.
Kenny, Sister Elizabeth

33.
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
John Quincy Adams

34.
True courage is like a kite; a contrary wind raises it higher.
Petit-Senn, John

35.
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

36.
It shows a brave and resolute spirit not to be agitated in exciting circumstances.
Cicero, Marcus T.

37.
Fortune can take away riches, but not courage.
Seneca

38.
Live as brave men and face adversity with stout hearts.
Horace

39.
Gallantry to women -- the sure road to their favor -- is nothing but the appearance of extreme devotion to all their wants and wishes, a delight in their satisfaction, and a confidence in yourself as being able to contribute toward it.
Hazlitt, William

40.
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.

41.
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

42.
True courage is not the brutal force of vulgar heroes. Rather the firm resolve of virtue and reason.
Whitehead, Alfred North

43.
I'm very brave generally, he went on in a low voice: only today I happen to have a headache.
Carroll, Lewis

44.
One who never turned his back but marched breast forward, never doubted clouds would break, Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph,
Browning, Robert

45.
He who loses wealth loses much; he who loses a friend loses more; but he that loses his courage loses all.
Cervantes, Miguel De

46.
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.
Spender, Stephen

47.
What you RESIST, PERSISTS. If you take ownership and deal with things that are bothering you, then, in the very process of dealing with them they very often will go away.

48.
The most glorious moments in your life are not the so-called days of success, but rather those days when out of dejection and despair you feel rise in you a challenge to life, and the promise of future accomplishments.
Flaubert, Gustave

49.
Half a man's wisdom goes with his courage.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

50.
A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.
