Perfect courage is to do without witnesses what one would be capable of doing with the world looking on.
Best Quotes about Courage
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.
What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
Gogh, Vincent Van
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.
Courage stands halfway between cowardice and rashness, one of which is a lack, the other an excess of courage.
Courage is like love; it must have hope to nourish it.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear.
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
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
As a rock on the seashore he standeth firm, and the dashing of the waves disturbeth him not. He raiseth his head like a tower on a hill, and the arrows of fortune drop at his feet. In the instant of danger, the courage of his heart here, and scorn to fly.
Courage follows action.
Douglas, Mack R.
Real courage is when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.
In love, as in war, a fortress that parleys is half taken.
Courage is rightly considered the foremost of the virtues, for upon it, all others depend.
The scars you acquire while exercising courage will never make you feel inferior.
Don't foul, don't flinch. Hit the line hard.
Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God's approval.
Monson, Thomas S.
A strong man and a waterfall always channel their own path.
But screw your courage to the sticking-place and we'll not fail.
Live as brave men; and if fortune is adverse, front its blows with brave hearts.
Private bravery is often the price of personal victory.
A lot of people do not muster the courage to live their dreams because they are afraid to die.
You are merely not feeling equal to the tasks before you.
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 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
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.
I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.
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.
Fortune helps the brave.
Courage is being scared to death - but saddling up anyway.
A coward turns away, but a brave man's choice is danger.
There is another side to chivalry. If it dispenses leniency, it may with equal justification invoke control.
We can never be certain of our courage until we have faced danger.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
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.
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 brave don't live forever, but the cautious don't live at all. Here's to the brave!
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.
The more wit the less courage.
Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke.
I dare to do all that may become a man: who dares do more is none.
Bravery and stupidity go hand in hand.
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.
Courage that grows from constitution often forsakes a man when he has occasion for it; courage which arises from a sense of duty acts ;in a uniform manner.
Grant what thou commandest and then command what thou wilt.
Follow the path of the unsafe, independent thinker. Expose your ideas to the danger of controversy. Speak your mind and fear less the label of crackpot than the stigma of conformity.
Watson, Thomas J.
A person who walks in another's tracks leaves no footprints.
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.
Fortune and love favor the brave.
To put it boldly, it is the attempt at a posterior reconstruction of existence by the process of conceptualization.
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.
Success is never final and failure is never fatal. It's courage that counts.
