Best Quotes about Courage
We can never be certain of our courage until we have faced danger.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
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.
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.
Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.
Beaton, Sir Cecil
The more thou dost advance, the more thy feet pitfalls will meet. The Path that leadeth on is lighted by one fire -- the light of daring burning in the heart. The more one dares, the more he shall obtain. The more he fears, the more that light shall pale
Blavatsky, Helena Petrova
Here is the answer which I will give to President Roosevelt. Give us the tools, and we will finish the job.
The courage we desire and prize is not the courage to die decently, but to live manfully.
To have courage for whatever comes in life -- everything lies in that.
Teresa of Avila, St.
Courage is rightly considered the foremost of the virtues, for upon it, all others depend.
Discoveries are often made by not following instructions, by going off the main road, by trying the untried.
Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God's approval.
Monson, Thomas S.
Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.
Jean Paul Richter
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.
He who dies before many witnesses always does so with courage.
Fortune and love favor the brave.
There are times to cultivate and create, when you nurture your world and give birth to new ideas and ventures. There are times of flourishing and abundance, when life feels in full bloom, energized and expanding. And there are times of fruition, when things come to an end. They have reached their climax and must be harvested before they begin to fade. And finally of course, there are times that are cold, and cutting and empty, times when the spring of new beginnings seems like a distant dream. Those rhythms in life are natural events. They weave into one another as day follows night, bringing, not messages of hope and fear, but messages of how things are.
No matter how carefully you plan your goals they will never be more than pipe dreams unless you pursue them with gusto.
Stone, W. Clement
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.
A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.
Woman and men of retiring timidity are cowardly only in dangers which affect themselves, but the first to rescue when others are in danger.
Richter, Jean Paul
Have the courage of your desire.
Gissing, George Robert
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare.
You are under the unfortunate delusion that simply because you run away from danger, you have no courage. You're confusing courage with wisdom.
This is no time for ease and comfort. It is the time to dare and endure.
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.
Father, may these people have the vision to see, the faith to accept the truth, the courage to stand by that which they know is right.
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.
But you be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work. [ 2 Chronicles 15:7]
He either fears his fate too much, Or his deserts are small, That dares not put it to the touch, To gain or lose it all.
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.
You have to be tough.
One who never turned his back but marched breast forward, never doubted clouds would break, Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph,
The real acid test of courage is to be just your honest self when everybody is trying to be like somebody else.
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.
The worst thing of all is standing by when folks are doing something wrong.
Let people go all the way if they have got the balls for it.
Courage is like love; it must have hope to nourish it.
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
John Quincy Adams
It shows a brave and resolute spirit not to be agitated in exciting circumstances.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Fortune favors the brave.
The bravest are the most tender; the loving are the daring.
You are merely not feeling equal to the tasks before you.
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.
A person who walks in another's tracks leaves no footprints.
Courage consists not in blindly overlooking danger, but in seeing it, and conquering it.
Richter, Jean Paul
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.
Courage is being scared to death - but saddling up anyway.
Courage consists not in hazarding without fear; but being resolutely minded in a just cause.
Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity.
Stone, W. Clement
