Motivational Quotes

Courage

You take a number of small steps which you believe are right, thinking maybe tomorrow somebody will treat this as a dangerous provocation. And then you wait. If there is no reaction, you take another step: courage is only an accumulation of small steps.
- Konrad, George

Best Quotes about Courage

1.
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.
Burke, Edmund

2.
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.
Hugo, Victor

3.
Don't foul, don't flinch. Hit the line hard.
Roosevelt, Theodore

4.
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

5.
Whether you be man or woman you will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.
Allen, James

6.
Bravery has no place where it can avail nothing.
Johnson, Samuel

7.
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

8.
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
Bernanos, Georges

9.
The bravest thing you can do when you are not brave is to profess courage and act accordingly.
Corra Harris

10.
I would rather be a coward than brave because people hurt you when you are brave.
E. M. Forster

11.
Courage and modesty are the most unequivocal of virtues, for they are of a kind that hypocrisy cannot imitate; they too have this quality in common, that they are expressed by the same color.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

12.
Courage conquers all things: it even gives strength to the body.
Ovid

13.
Life only demands from you the strength that you possess. Only one feat is possible; not to run away.
Hammarskjold, Dag

14.
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.
Howard, Vernon

15.
Courage is a special kind of knowledge: the knowledge of how to fear what ought to be feared and how not to fear what ought no to be feared.
Ben-Gurion, David

16.
Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
Churchill, Winston

17.
It takes courage to push yourself to places that you have never been before... to test your limits... to break through barriers. And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Nin, Anais

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

19.
I'd rather give my life than be afraid to give it.
Johnson, Lyndon B.

20.
Some have been thought brave because they were afraid to run away.
Thomas Fuller

21.
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.

22.
It takes vision and courage to create -- it takes faith and courage to prove.
Young, Owen D.

23.
We are very much what others think of us. The reception our observations meet with gives us courage to proceed, or damps our efforts.
Hazlitt, William

24.
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.

25.
Grant what thou commandest and then command what thou wilt.
Augustine, St.

26.
Is he alone who has courage on his right hand and faith on his left hand?
Lindbergh, Charles A.

27.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear.
Twain, Mark

28.
What a new face courage puts on everything!
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

29.
Nothing gives a fearful man more courage than another's fear.
Eco, Umberto

30.
Act boldly and unseen forces will come to your aid.
Brande, Dorothea

31.
There's no substitute for guts.
Bryant, Bear

32.
A man not perfect, but of heart so high, of such heroic rage, That even his hopes became a part of earth's eternal heritage.
Gilder, Richard Watson

33.
Last, but by no means least, courage-moral courage, the courage of one's convictions, the courage to see things through. The world ;is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It's the age-old struggle-the roar of the crowd on one side and the voice of your ;conscience on the other.
Macarthur, Douglas

34.
Keep courage. Whatever you do, do not feel sorry for yourself. You will win in a great age of opportunity.
Evans, Richard L.

35.
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.

36.
Here I stand; I can do no other. God help me. Amen!
Luther, Martin

37.
A person who walks in another's tracks leaves no footprints.

38.
Noah was a brave man to sail in a wooden boat with two termites.

39.
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

40.
Courage is rightly considered the foremost of the virtues, for upon it, all others depend.
Churchill, Winston

41.
One who lacks courage to start has already finished

42.
Live as brave men; and if fortune is adverse, front its blows with brave hearts.
Cicero

43.
Give us the fortitude to endure the things which cannot be changed, and the courage to change the things which should be changed, ;and the wisdom to know one from the other.
Hart, Oliver J.

44.
All brave men love; for he only is brave who has affections to fight for, whether in the daily battle of life, or in physical contests.
Hawthorne, Nathaniel

45.
It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow

46.
Many would be cowards if they had courage enough.
Thomas Fuller

47.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. [Joshua 1:9]
Bible

48.
At the bottom of not a little of the bravery that appears in the world, there lurks a miserable cowardice. Men will face powder and steel because they have not the courage to face public opinion.
Chapin, Edwin Hubbel

49.
It shows a brave and resolute spirit not to be agitated in exciting circumstances.
Cicero, Marcus T.

50.
As for courage and will -- we cannot measure how much of each lies within us, we can only trust there will be sufficient to carry through trials which may lie ahead.
Norton, Andre
