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.
Best Quotes about Courage
Courage is not the towering oak that sees storms come and go; it is the fragile blossom that opens in the snow.
Swaim, Alice Mackenzie
Discoveries are often made by not following instructions, by going off the main road, by trying the untried.
To boldly go where no man has gone before.
TV series, Star Trek
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear.
Be bold-and mighty forces will come to your aid.
Physical courage, which engages all danger, will make a person brave in one way; and moral courage, which defies all opinion, will make a person brave in another.
Colton, Charles Caleb
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.
Courage enlarges, cowardice diminishes resources. In desperate straits the fears of the timid aggravate the dangers that imperil the brave.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.
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.
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
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare.
Courage brother, do not stumble, though thy path be dark as night: There is a star to guide the humble, Trust in God, and do the right. Let the road be dark and dreary and its end far out of sight. Face it bravely, strong or weary. Trust in God, and do the right.
The brave don't live forever, but the cautious don't live at all. Here's to the brave!
There's no substitute for guts.
Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance.
One who never turned his back but marched breast forward, never doubted clouds would break, Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph,
Most of the high spots in our lives come about through encouragement. I don't care how great, how famous, how successful a man may be, he hungers for applause.
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 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.
I am convinced that one of the biggest factors in success is the courage to undertake something.
Worsham, James A.
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.
The real acid test of courage is to be just your honest self when everybody is trying to be like somebody else.
The spirited horse, which will try to win the race of its own accord, will run even faster if encouraged.
A great deal of talent is lost in the world for want of courage.
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.
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.
True courage is not the brutal force of vulgar heroes. Rather the firm resolve of virtue and reason.
Whitehead, Alfred North
I can do all things through him who strengthens me. [Philippians 4:13]
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
Keep courage. Whatever you do, do not feel sorry for yourself. You will win in a great age of opportunity.
Evans, Richard L.
In love, as in war, a fortress that parleys is half taken.
We need to find the courage to say NO to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.
Angelis, Barbara De
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 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.
Private bravery is often the price of personal victory.
Courage stands halfway between cowardice and rashness, one of which is a lack, the other an excess of courage.
It takes guts to get out of the ruts.
Schuller, Robert H.
The scars you acquire while exercising courage will never make you feel inferior.
The courage of life is often a less dramatic spectacle than the courage of the final moment; but it is no less a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy.
Kennedy, John F.
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.
You are merely not feeling equal to the tasks before you.
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
Courage is getting away from death by continually coming within an inch of it.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace. The soul that knows it not, knows no release from little things; knows not the livid loneliness of fear.
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.
Jean Paul Richter
Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. [Ephesians 6:10]
The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion. [Proverbs 28:1]
Courage is the ladder on which all the other virtues mount.
Clare Booth Luce
Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
