Best Quotes about Courage

Colton, Charles Caleb

I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat.
This is no time for ease and comfort. It is the time to dare and endure.
Nothing gives a fearful man more courage than another's fear.
The brave and bold persist even against fortune; the timid and cowardly rush to despair though fear alone.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius

Edison, Thomas A.

Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.
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.
Courage stands halfway between cowardice and rashness, one of which is a lack, the other an excess of courage.
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
John Quincy Adams
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.
True courage is not the brutal force of vulgar heroes. Rather the firm resolve of virtue and reason.
Whitehead, Alfred North

Cicero, Marcus T.
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.
Jean Paul Richter
Anybody with a little guts and the desire to apply himself can make it, he can make anything he wants to make of himself.
The beauty of the soul shines out when a man bears with composure one heavy mischance after another, not because he does not feel them, but because he is a man of high and heroic temper.

He that would be superior to external influences must first become superior to his own passions.
It is easy to fly into a passion... anybody can do that, but to be angry with the right person to the right extent and at the right time and in the right way that is not easy.
Courage and conviction are powerful weapons against an enemy who depends only on fists or guns. Animals know when you are afraid; a coward knows when you are not.
If we must fall, we should boldly meet the danger.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
If you stand up to be counted, someone will take your seat.
I advise you to say your dream is possible and then overcome all inconveniences, ignore all the hassles and take a running leap through the hoop, even if it is in flames.
A strong man and a waterfall always channel their own path.
Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I may not forget you.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear.

Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.
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
As a rock on the seashore he standeth firm, and the dashing of the waves disturbeth him not. He raiseth his head like a tower on a hill, and the arrows of fortune drop at his feet. In the instant of danger, the courage of his heart here, and scorn to fly.

No one reaches a high position without daring.
Fortune can take away riches, but not courage.
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]
I'd rather give my life than be afraid to give it.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
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.
In love, as in war, a fortress that parleys is half taken.

Richter, Jean Paul
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

Kennedy, John F.
It is in great dangers that we see great courage.
Regnard, Jean Francois
