Courage Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Courage

1.
Nothing recommends a man to the female mind than courage.

2.
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

3.
A lot of people do not muster the courage to live their dreams because they are afraid to die.
Brown, Les

4.
Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
Seneca

5.
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.
Rodman, Frances

6.
Many would be cowards if they had courage enough.
Thomas Fuller

7.
There is another side to chivalry. If it dispenses leniency, it may with equal justification invoke control.
Adler, Freda

8.
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterwards.
Richter, Jean Paul

9.
With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. [Psalms 18:29]
Bible

10.
It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.
Bombeck, Erma

11.
It is a blessed thing that in every age some one has had the individuality enough and courage enough to stand by his own convictions.
Ingersoll, Robert Green

12.
Private bravery is often the price of personal victory.

13.
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.
Konrad, George

14.
The brave man inattentive to his duty, is worth little more to his country than the coward who deserts in the hour of danger.
Jackson, Andrew

15.
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

16.
This is the test of your manhood: How much is there left in you after you have lost everything outside of yourself?
Marden, Orison Swett

17.
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]
Bible

18.
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

19.
Courage is the capacity to conduct oneself with restraint in times of prosperity and with courage and tenacity when things do not go well.
Forrestal, James V.

20.
We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.
King Jr. Martin Luther

21.
Most men have more courage than even they themselves think they have.
Greville, Lord

22.
It is amidst great perils we see brave hearts.
Regnard, Jean Francois

23.
When valour preys on reason, it eats the sword it fights with.
William Shakespeare

24.
Be larger than your task.
Marden, Orison Swett

25.
'Tis much he dares; and, to that dauntless temper of his mind, he hath a wisdom that doth guide his valour to act in safety.
William Shakespeare

26.
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.
Allen, James

27.
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.

28.
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...
James, William

29.
I am convinced that one of the biggest factors in success is the courage to undertake something.
Worsham, James A.

30.
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
Disney, Walt

31.
That's a valiant flea that dares eat his breakfast on the lip of a lion.
Shakespeare, William

32.
Courage follows action.
Douglas, Mack R.

33.
The worst thing of all is standing by when folks are doing something wrong.
Kirby Larson

34.
The bravest thing you can do when you are not brave is to profess courage and act accordingly.
Corra Harris

35.
Noah was a brave man to sail in a wooden boat with two termites.

36.
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare.
Twain, Mark

37.
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.
Maltz, Maxwell

38.
The pressure of adversity does not affect the mind of the brave man. It is more powerful than external circumstances.
Seneca

39.
Is he alone who has courage on his right hand and faith on his left hand?
Lindbergh, Charles A.

40.
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.

41.
'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

42.
The spirited horse, which will try to win the race of its own accord, will run even faster if encouraged.
Ovid

43.
Courage is getting away from death by continually coming within an inch of it.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.

44.
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

45.
True courage is like a kite; a contrary wind raises it higher.
Petit-Senn, John

46.
The brave and bold persist even against fortune; the timid and cowardly rush to despair though fear alone.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

47.
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?

48.
A great part of courage is the courage of having done the thing before.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

49.
Courage is rightly considered the foremost of the virtues, for upon it, all others depend.
Churchill, Winston

50.
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
