Best Quotes about Courage
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.
Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance.
Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace. The soul that knows it not, knows no release from little things; knows not the livid loneliness of fear.
I dare to do all that may become a man: who dares do more is none.
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.
Courage means to keep working a relationship, to continue seeking solutions to difficult problems, and to stay focused during stressful periods.
I never thought much of the courage of a lion tamer. Inside the cage he is at least safe from people.
Shaw, George Bernard
The more thou dost advance, the more thy feet pitfalls will meet. The Path that leadeth on is lighted by one fire -- the light of daring burning in the heart. The more one dares, the more he shall obtain. The more he fears, the more that light shall pale
Blavatsky, Helena Petrova
Most men have more courage than even they themselves think they have.
Good courage in a bad affair is half of the evil overcome.
Wealth lost is something lost, honor lost is something lost: Courage lost all is lost.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
Courage is rightly considered the foremost of the virtues, for upon it, all others depend.
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
Courage brother, do not stumble, though thy path be dark as night: There is a star to guide the humble, Trust in God, and do the right. Let the road be dark and dreary and its end far out of sight. Face it bravely, strong or weary. Trust in God, and do the right.
Last, but by no means least, courage-moral courage, the courage of one's convictions, the courage to see things through. The world ;is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It's the age-old struggle-the roar of the crowd on one side and the voice of your ;conscience on the other.
The brave person thinks of themselves last of all.
Schiller, Johann Friedrich Von
Correction does much, but encouragement does more. Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
If courage wasn't a standard result of aging, it meant that the young could somehow acquire it as well.
It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke.
A great part of courage is the courage of having done the thing before.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid... for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
The spirited horse, which will try to win the race of its own accord, will run even faster if encouraged.
The brave and bold persist even against fortune; the timid and cowardly rush to despair though fear alone.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
Do not fear, for those who are with us, are more than those who are with them. [2 Kings 6:16]
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.
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
'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.
One who lacks courage to start has already finished
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
Have courage for the great sorrows of life, and patience for the small ones. When you have laboriously accomplished your daily tasks, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.
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
Nothing gives a fearful man more courage than another's fear.
Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.
A person who walks in another's tracks leaves no footprints.
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.
Courage consists not in blindly overlooking danger, but in seeing it, and conquering it.
Richter, Jean Paul
We must have the courage to allow a little disorder in our lives.
Because of a great love, one is courageous.
Bravery and stupidity go hand in hand.
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.
Act boldly and unseen forces will come to your aid.
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.
If we must fall, we should boldly meet the danger.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
John Quincy Adams
I'd rather give my life than be afraid to give it.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
