Many would be cowards if they had courage enough.
Best Quotes about Courage
Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others.
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.
The bravest thing you can do when you are not brave is to profess courage and act accordingly.
Screw up your courage, you screwed up everything else.
Stride forward with a firm, steady step knowing with a deep, certain inner knowing that you will reach every goal you set yourselves, that you will achieve every aim .
Courage leads to heaven; fear leads to death.
Live as brave men; and if fortune is adverse, front its blows with brave hearts.
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.
Have the courage of your desire.
Gissing, George Robert
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.
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
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.
Don't foul, don't flinch. Hit the line hard.
The ideas that have lighted my way and, time after time, have given me new courage to face life cheerfully have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth.
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
It is amidst great perils we see brave hearts.
Regnard, Jean Francois
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
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.
There's no substitute for guts.
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
Perfect courage is to do without witnesses what one would be capable of doing with the world looking on.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Most men have more courage than even they themselves think they have.
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...
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear.
Be bold-and mighty forces will come to your aid.
The burden which is well borne becomes light.
Be courageous. I have seen many depressions in business. Always America has emerged from these stronger and more prosperous. Be brave as your fathers before you. Have faith! Go forward!
Edison, Thomas A.
Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.
A strong man and a waterfall always channel their own path.
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
It requires courage not to surrender oneself to the ingenious or compassionate counsels of despair that would induce a man to eliminate himself from the ranks of the living; but it does not follow from this that every huckster who is fattened and nourished in self-confidence has more courage than the man who yielded to despair.
Good courage in a bad affair is half of the evil overcome.
Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
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.
Courage follows action.
Douglas, Mack R.
Fortune helps the brave.
More firm and sure the hand of courage strikes, when it obeys the watchful eye of caution.
All my life I knew that there was all the money you could want out there. All you have to do is go after it.
Is he alone who has courage on his right hand and faith on his left hand?
Lindbergh, Charles A.
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.
Nothing gives a fearful man more courage than another's fear.
You have to be tough.
Courage consists not in hazarding without fear; but being resolutely minded in a just cause.
Courage is the ladder on which all the other virtues mount.
Clare Booth Luce
The courage of life is often a less dramatic spectacle than the courage of the final moment; but it is no less a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy.
Kennedy, John F.
Private bravery is often the price of personal victory.
Do not fear, for those who are with us, are more than those who are with them. [2 Kings 6:16]
And what he greatly thought, he nobly dared.
Courage consists not in blindly overlooking danger, but in seeing it, and conquering it.
Richter, Jean Paul
I would rather be a coward than brave because people hurt you when you are brave.
E. M. Forster
