Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear.
Best Quotes about Courage

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.
Noah was a brave man to sail in a wooden boat with two termites.
We are made strong by the difficulties we face not by those we evade.
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.
Is he alone who has courage on his right hand and faith on his left hand?
Lindbergh, Charles A.

Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Be bold-and mighty forces will come to your aid.
The only courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one moment to the next.
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.

Part of courage is simple consistency.
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.

Regnard, Jean Francois
I'd rather give my life than be afraid to give it.
Johnson, Lyndon B.

Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.

True courage is cool and calm. The bravest of men have the least of a brutal, bullying insolence, and in the very time of danger are found the most serene and free.
Because of a great love, one is courageous.
Physical courage, which engages all danger, will make a person brave in one way; and moral courage, which defies all opinion, will make a person brave in another.
Colton, Charles Caleb
Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
The bravest are the most tender; the loving are the daring.

It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.
Beaton, Sir Cecil
No fact of human nature is more characteristic that its willingness to live on a chance.
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.
The world's male chivalry has perished out, but women are knights-errant to the last; and, if Cervantes had been greater still, he had made his Don a Donna.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
A great deal of talent is lost in the world for want of courage.
The brave and bold persist even against fortune; the timid and cowardly rush to despair though fear alone.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
