Courage consists not in hazarding without fear; but being resolutely minded in a just cause.
Best Quotes about Courage
Let bravery be thy choice, but not bravado.
No one reaches a high position without daring.
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
The brave man inattentive to his duty, is worth little more to his country than the coward who deserts in the hour of danger.
One who never turned his back but marched breast forward, never doubted clouds would break, Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph,
Courage enlarges, cowardice diminishes resources. In desperate straits the fears of the timid aggravate the dangers that imperil the brave.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
What you have outside you counts less than what you have inside you.
Forbes, B. C.
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.
But you be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work. [ 2 Chronicles 15:7]
Grant what thou commandest and then command what thou wilt.
Courage is the capacity to confirm what can be imagined.
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
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
Courage -- a perfect sensibility of the measure of danger, and a mental willingness to endure it.
Sherman, William T.
That's a valiant flea that dares eat his breakfast on the lip of a lion.
The beauty of the soul shines out when a man bears with composure one heavy mischance after another, not because he does not feel them, but because he is a man of high and heroic temper.
In fighting and in everyday life you should be determined though calm. Meet the situation without tenseness yet not recklessly, your spirit settled yet unbiased. An elevated spirit is weak and a low spirit is weak. Do not let the enemy see your spirit.
I would rather be a coward than brave because people hurt you when you are brave.
E. M. Forster
The scars you acquire while exercising courage will never make you feel inferior.
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.
With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. [Psalms 18:29]
Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke.
I can do all things through him who strengthens me. [Philippians 4:13]
Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
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.
If men knew all that women think, they would be twenty times more daring.
Until the day of his death, no man can be sure of his courage.
The real acid test of courage is to be just your honest self when everybody is trying to be like somebody else.
It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.
Jean Paul Richter
I am more important than my problems.
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.
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 is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
Don't foul, don't flinch. Hit the line hard.
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.
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.
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
Perfect courage is to do without witnesses what one would be capable of doing with the world looking on.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
I decided once and for all that I was going to make it or die.
The more wit the less courage.
Have the courage of your desire.
Gissing, George Robert
We must have the courage to allow a little disorder in our lives.
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.
Courage is the ladder on which all the other virtues mount.
Clare Booth Luce
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]
The worst thing of all is standing by when folks are doing something wrong.
I dare to do all that may become a man: who dares do more is none.
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.
Like a boxer in a title fight, you have to walk in that ring alone.
