Best Quotes about Courage
What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
Gogh, Vincent Van
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

Cicero, Marcus T.

This is no time for ease and comfort. It is the time to dare and endure.
Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
Better to die on one's feet than to live on one's knees.
There are obstinate and unknown braves who defend themselves inch by inch in the shadows against the fatal invasion of want and turpitude. There are noble and mysterious triumphs which no eye sees. No renown rewards, and no flourish of trumpets salutes. Life, misfortune, isolation, abandonment, and poverty and battlefields which have their heroes.
Private bravery is often the price of personal victory.
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.

Swaim, Alice Mackenzie
If men knew all that women think, they would be twenty times more daring.
Courage is being scared to death - but saddling up anyway.
Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance.
The more wit the less courage.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.
To put it boldly, it is the attempt at a posterior reconstruction of existence by the process of conceptualization.
Courage conquers all things: it even gives strength to the body.
No man in the world has more courage than the man who can stop after eating one peanut.
Write on your doors the saying wise and old. Be bold! and everywhere -- Be bold; Be not too bold! Yet better the excess Than the defect; better the more than less sustaineth him and the steadiness of his mind beareth him out.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
Courage means to keep working a relationship, to continue seeking solutions to difficult problems, and to stay focused during stressful periods.
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.
The test of tolerance comes when we are in a majority; the test of courage comes when we are in a minority.
Stockman, Ralph W.
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 consists not in blindly overlooking danger, but in seeing it, and conquering it.
Richter, Jean Paul
Be larger than your task.
Marden, Orison Swett
Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke.
If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold you head high, look it squarely in the eye and say, I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.
Courage follows action.
Douglas, Mack R.
What you have outside you counts less than what you have inside you.
Forbes, B. C.

Chesterton, Gilbert K.

Stone, W. Clement
That's a valiant flea that dares eat his breakfast on the lip of a lion.
But you be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work. [ 2 Chronicles 15:7]
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear.
Let bravery be thy choice, but not bravado.
Courage is not limited to the battlefield or the Indianapolis 500 or bravely catching a thief in your house. The real tests of courage are much quieter. They are the inner tests, like remaining faithful when nobody's looking, like enduring pain when the room is empty, like standing alone when you're misunderstood.
No one reaches a high position without daring.
The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion. [Proverbs 28:1]
