Best Quotes about Courage
I think of those who were truly great. The names of those who in their lives fought for life, Who wore at their hearts the fire's center.
To boldly go where no man has gone before.
TV series, Star Trek
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.
All brave men love; for he only is brave who has affections to fight for, whether in the daily battle of life, or in physical contests.
Let people go all the way if they have got the balls for it.
True courage is like a kite; a contrary wind raises it higher.
If we must fall, we should boldly meet the danger.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Noah was a brave man to sail in a wooden boat with two termites.
The acorn becomes an oak by means of automatic growth; no commitment is necessary. The kitten similarly becomes a cat on the basis of instinct. Nature and being are identical in creatures like them. But a man or woman becomes fully human only by his or her choices and his or her commitment to them. People attain worth and dignity by the multitude of decisions they make from day by day. These decisions require courage.
In fighting and in everyday life you should be determined though calm. Meet the situation without tenseness yet not recklessly, your spirit settled yet unbiased. An elevated spirit is weak and a low spirit is weak. Do not let the enemy see your spirit.
One who lacks courage to start has already finished
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 going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
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.
Don't foul, don't flinch. Hit the line hard.
A true knight is fuller of bravery in the midst, than in the beginning of danger.
Sidney, Sir Philip
Grant what thou commandest and then command what thou wilt.
There are obstinate and unknown braves who defend themselves inch by inch in the shadows against the fatal invasion of want and turpitude. There are noble and mysterious triumphs which no eye sees. No renown rewards, and no flourish of trumpets salutes. Life, misfortune, isolation, abandonment, and poverty and battlefields which have their heroes.
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.
The more wit the less courage.
Here I stand; I can do no other. God help me. Amen!
Part of courage is simple consistency.
A strong man and a waterfall always channel their own path.
When you meet your antagonist, do everything in a mild and agreeable manner. Let your courage be as keen, but at the same time as polished, as your sword.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
You have to be tough.
The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion. [Proverbs 28:1]
We can never be certain of our courage until we have faced danger.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
If you stand up to be counted, someone will take your seat.
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.
Have the courage to say no. Have the courage to face the truth. Do the right thing because it is right. These are the magic keys to living your life with integrity.
Stone, W. Clement
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
John Quincy Adams
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.
The strangest, most generous, and proudest of all virtues is true courage.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
As for courage and will -- we cannot measure how much of each lies within us, we can only trust there will be sufficient to carry through trials which may lie ahead.
Courage follows action.
Douglas, Mack R.
Courage is getting away from death by continually coming within an inch of it.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
In love, as in war, a fortress that parleys is half taken.
It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
The scars you acquire while exercising courage will never make you feel inferior.
Courage is like love; it must have hope to nourish it.
Courage stands halfway between cowardice and rashness, one of which is a lack, the other an excess of courage.
The pressure of adversity does not affect the mind of the brave man. It is more powerful than external circumstances.
Whether you be man or woman you will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.
Until the day of his death, no man can be sure of his courage.
A great part of courage is the courage of having done the thing before.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Life becomes real only when we begin to face and solve our own problems. Until then we only swim in circles in a large fantasy world which tends to make us very tired of living. Don't waste energy! Face life now!
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.
Nothing recommends a man to the female mind than courage.
Half a man's wisdom goes with his courage.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Write on your doors the saying wise and old. Be bold! and everywhere -- Be bold; Be not too bold! Yet better the excess Than the defect; better the more than less sustaineth him and the steadiness of his mind beareth him out.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
