Best Quotes about Courage
True courage is like a kite; a contrary wind raises it higher.
Courage means to keep working a relationship, to continue seeking solutions to difficult problems, and to stay focused during stressful periods.
You take a number of small steps which you believe are right, thinking maybe tomorrow somebody will treat this as a dangerous provocation. And then you wait. If there is no reaction, you take another step: courage is only an accumulation of small steps.
We are very much what others think of us. The reception our observations meet with gives us courage to proceed, or damps our efforts.
The bravest are the most tender; the loving are the daring.
Here is the answer which I will give to President Roosevelt. Give us the tools, and we will finish the job.
Here I stand; I can do no other. God help me. Amen!
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 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.
I am more important than my problems.
Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance.
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.
Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. [Ephesians 6:10]
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
John Quincy Adams
If we have the courage and tenacity of our forebears, who stood firmly like a rock against the lash of slavery, we shall find a way to do for our day what they did for theirs.
Bethune, Mary Mcleod
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterwards.
Richter, Jean Paul
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.
For the man sound of body and serene of mind there is no such thing as bad weather; every day has its beauty, and storms which whip the blood do but make it pulse more vigorously.
Gissing, George Robert
Private bravery is often the price of personal victory.
I've been through it all, baby. I'm Mother Courage.
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.
It takes vision and courage to create -- it takes faith and courage to prove.
Young, Owen D.
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.
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
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
Like a boxer in a title fight, you have to walk in that ring alone.
Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God's approval.
Monson, Thomas S.
Screw up your courage, you screwed up everything else.
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.
You have to be tough.
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
Nothing recommends a man to the female mind than courage.
Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
Live as brave men and face adversity with stout hearts.
Discoveries are often made by not following instructions, by going off the main road, by trying the untried.
The courage we desire and prize is not the courage to die decently, but to live manfully.
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.
Courage is acting in spite of fear.
Hunter, Howard W.
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.
Real courage is when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.
To have courage for whatever comes in life -- everything lies in that.
Teresa of Avila, St.
No fact of human nature is more characteristic that its willingness to live on a chance.
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.
It takes guts to get out of the ruts.
Schuller, Robert H.
If courage wasn't a standard result of aging, it meant that the young could somehow acquire it as well.
Bravery has no place where it can avail nothing.
To put it boldly, it is the attempt at a posterior reconstruction of existence by the process of conceptualization.
Success is never final and failure is never fatal. It's courage that counts.
The only courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one moment to the next.
