There are times to cultivate and create, when you nurture your world and give birth to new ideas and ventures. There are times of flourishing and abundance, when life feels in full bloom, energized and expanding. And there are times of fruition, when things come to an end. They have reached their climax and must be harvested before they begin to fade. And finally of course, there are times that are cold, and cutting and empty, times when the spring of new beginnings seems like a distant dream. Those rhythms in life are natural events. They weave into one another as day follows night, bringing, not messages of hope and fear, but messages of how things are.
Best Quotes about Courage
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.
Grant what thou commandest and then command what thou wilt.
Correction does much, but encouragement does more. Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.
But you be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work. [ 2 Chronicles 15:7]
We can never be certain of our courage until we have faced danger.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
True courage is like a kite; a contrary wind raises it higher.
What you have outside you counts less than what you have inside you.
Forbes, B. C.
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.
If you stand up to be counted, someone will take your seat.
The burden which is well borne becomes light.
It is in great dangers that we see great courage.
Regnard, Jean Francois
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.
Nothing gives a fearful man more courage than another's fear.
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.
And what he greatly thought, he nobly dared.
It takes guts to get out of the ruts.
Schuller, Robert H.
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
Courage consists not in hazarding without fear; but being resolutely minded in a just cause.
It takes a certain courage and a certain greatness to be truly base.
The most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.
Coubertin, Baron Pierre De
Gallantry to women -- the sure road to their favor -- is nothing but the appearance of extreme devotion to all their wants and wishes, a delight in their satisfaction, and a confidence in yourself as being able to contribute toward it.
Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
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.
Do not fear, for those who are with us, are more than those who are with them. [2 Kings 6:16]
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.
To love someone deeply gives you strength. Being loved by someone deeply gives you courage.
Private bravery is often the price of personal victory.
Because of a great love, one is courageous.
Keep courage. Whatever you do, do not feel sorry for yourself. You will win in a great age of opportunity.
Evans, Richard L.
Pugnacity is a form of courage, but a very bad form.
If men knew all that women think, they would be twenty times more daring.
Courage enlarges, cowardice diminishes resources. In desperate straits the fears of the timid aggravate the dangers that imperil the brave.
Bovee, Christian Nevell
Bravery has no place where it can avail nothing.
It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
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
The human race afraid of nothing, rushes on through every crime.
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
I decided once and for all that I was going to make it or die.
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
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 the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
If courage wasn't a standard result of aging, it meant that the young could somehow acquire it as well.
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.
I never thought much of the courage of a lion tamer. Inside the cage he is at least safe from people.
Shaw, George Bernard
Courage, not compromise, brings the smile of God's approval.
Monson, Thomas S.
A lot of people do not muster the courage to live their dreams because they are afraid to die.
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]
Be bold-and mighty forces will come to your aid.
I am more important than my problems.
