The finest gift you can give anyone is encouragement. Yet, almost no one gets the encouragement they need to grow to their full potential. If everyone received the encouragement they need to grow, the genius in most everyone would blossom and the world would produce abundance beyond the wildest dreams. We would have more than one Einstein, Edison, Schweitzer, Mother Theresa, Dr. Salk and other great minds in a century.
Best Quotes about Courage
We are very much what others think of us. The reception our observations meet with gives us courage to proceed, or damps our efforts.
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
Courage is the ladder on which all the other virtues mount.
Clare Booth Luce
Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke.
Courage is an everyday thing. When we look reality squarely in the eye and refuse to back away from our awareness, we are living courage.
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.
Courage conquers all things: it even gives strength to the body.
The burden which is well borne becomes light.
There is another side to chivalry. If it dispenses leniency, it may with equal justification invoke control.
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
Live as brave men; and if fortune is adverse, front its blows with brave hearts.
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
It takes guts to get out of the ruts.
Schuller, Robert H.
Courage consists not in hazarding without fear; but being resolutely minded in a just cause.
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.
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]
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.
It's better to be a lion for a day, than a sheep all your life.
Kenny, Sister Elizabeth
Much of what we call evil is due entirely to the way men take the phenomenon. It can so often be converted into a bracing and tonic good by a simple change of the sufferer's inner attitude from one of fear to one of fight; its string can so often depart and turn into a relish when, after vainly seeking to shun it, we agree to face about and bear it...
The more wit the less courage.
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
I would rather be a coward than brave because people hurt you when you are brave.
E. M. Forster
With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. [Psalms 18:29]
No man in the world has more courage than the man who can stop after eating one peanut.
Private bravery is often the price of personal victory.
Half a man's wisdom goes with his courage.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
The bravest thing you can do when you are not brave is to profess courage and act accordingly.
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.
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
Keep courage. Whatever you do, do not feel sorry for yourself. You will win in a great age of opportunity.
Evans, Richard L.
To love someone deeply gives you strength. Being loved by someone deeply gives you courage.
You have to be tough.
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
Act boldly and unseen forces will come to your aid.
Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.
A great deal of talent is lost in the world for want of courage.
The pressure of adversity does not affect the mind of the brave man. It is more powerful than external circumstances.
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
Fortune can take away riches, but not courage.
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.
I never thought much of the courage of a lion tamer. Inside the cage he is at least safe from people.
Shaw, George Bernard
Nothing recommends a man to the female mind than courage.
Fortune helps the brave.
Some have been thought brave because they didn't have the courage to run away.
Courage is acting in spite of fear.
Hunter, Howard W.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.
If we must fall, we should boldly meet the danger.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
The only courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one moment to the next.
What you have outside you counts less than what you have inside you.
Forbes, B. C.
You've got to jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down.
