Best Quotes about Courage
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
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
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.
Because of a great love, one is courageous.
Courage leads to heaven; fear leads to death.
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.

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

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
When valour preys on reason, it eats the sword it fights with.
What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
Gogh, Vincent Van
He who dies before many witnesses always does so with courage.

A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.
Jean Paul Richter
The only courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one moment to the next.

DeVos, Richard M.

Gissing, George Robert
The strangest, most generous, and proudest of all virtues is true courage.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
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
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

It's better to be a lion for a day, than a sheep all your life.
Kenny, Sister Elizabeth
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.

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
It shows a brave and resolute spirit not to be agitated in exciting circumstances.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Fortune can take away riches, but not courage.
Live as brave men and face adversity with stout hearts.
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.
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.
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
True courage is not the brutal force of vulgar heroes. Rather the firm resolve of virtue and reason.
Whitehead, Alfred North
I'm very brave generally, he went on in a low voice: only today I happen to have a headache.
One who never turned his back but marched breast forward, never doubted clouds would break, Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph,
He who loses wealth loses much; he who loses a friend loses more; but he that loses his courage loses all.
Cervantes, Miguel De
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.

Emerson, Ralph Waldo
A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.
