Best Quotes about Courage
Courage stands halfway between cowardice and rashness, one of which is a lack, the other an excess of courage.
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...
Bravery has no place where it can avail nothing.
The only courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one moment to the next.
Fortune favors the brave.
And what he greatly thought, he nobly dared.
True courage is cool and calm. The bravest of men have the least of a brutal, bullying insolence, and in the very time of danger are found the most serene and free.
Courage is getting away from death by continually coming within an inch of it.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
We are very much what others think of us. The reception our observations meet with gives us courage to proceed, or damps our efforts.
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.
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.
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
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
The scars you acquire while exercising courage will never make you feel inferior.
As a rock on the seashore he standeth firm, and the dashing of the waves disturbeth him not. He raiseth his head like a tower on a hill, and the arrows of fortune drop at his feet. In the instant of danger, the courage of his heart here, and scorn to fly.
Life only demands from you the strength that you possess. Only one feat is possible; not to run away.
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.
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
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.
To boldly go where no man has gone before.
TV series, Star Trek
I advise you to say your dream is possible and then overcome all inconveniences, ignore all the hassles and take a running leap through the hoop, even if it is in flames.
Courage is the ladder on which all the other virtues mount.
Clare Booth Luce
'Tis easy enough to be pleasant, When life flows along like a song; But the man worth while is the one who will smile when everything goes dead wrong.
Wilcox, Ella Wheeler
The worst thing of all is standing by when folks are doing something wrong.
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
It shows a brave and resolute spirit not to be agitated in exciting circumstances.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others.
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.
It takes courage to attempt the impossible. What would we think of Moses today if when it was time to part the red sea, he had said Why don't you guys go build a bridge?
If you stand up to be counted, someone will take your seat.
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterwards.
Richter, Jean Paul
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.
He who loses wealth loses much; he who loses a friend loses more; but he that loses his courage loses all.
Cervantes, Miguel De
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.
I am more important than my problems.
What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
Gogh, Vincent Van
I've been through it all, baby. I'm Mother Courage.
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
Let people go all the way if they have got the balls for it.
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.
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
I dare to do all that may become a man: who dares do more is none.
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
A coward turns away, but a brave man's choice is danger.
Discoveries are often made by not following instructions, by going off the main road, by trying the untried.
I'm very brave generally, he went on in a low voice: only today I happen to have a headache.
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
It is in great dangers that we see great courage.
Regnard, Jean Francois
The pressure of adversity does not affect the mind of the brave man. It is more powerful than external circumstances.
