Private bravery is often the price of personal victory.
Best Quotes about Courage
Courage is like love; it must have hope to nourish it.
A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.
Courage -- a perfect sensibility of the measure of danger, and a mental willingness to endure it.
Sherman, William T.
Give us the fortitude to endure the things which cannot be changed, and the courage to change the things which should be changed, ;and the wisdom to know one from the other.
Hart, Oliver J.
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.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -- not absence of fear.
It takes vision and courage to create -- it takes faith and courage to prove.
Young, Owen D.
Be larger than your task.
Marden, Orison Swett
Fortune favors the brave.
The human race afraid of nothing, rushes on through every crime.
It's better to be a lion for a day, than a sheep all your life.
Kenny, Sister Elizabeth
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.
No fact of human nature is more characteristic that its willingness to live on a chance.
There's no substitute for guts.
Until the day of his death, no man can be sure of his courage.
Courage is an everyday thing. When we look reality squarely in the eye and refuse to back away from our awareness, we are living courage.
I'd rather give my life than be afraid to give it.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
He either fears his fate too much, Or his deserts are small, That dares not put it to the touch, To gain or lose it all.
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.
Because of a great love, one is courageous.
The courage we desire and prize is not the courage to die decently, but to live manfully.
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
Courage consists in equality to the problem before us.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
But you be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work. [ 2 Chronicles 15:7]
Courage and modesty are the most unequivocal of virtues, for they are of a kind that hypocrisy cannot imitate; they too have this quality in common, that they are expressed by the same color.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
The spirited horse, which will try to win the race of its own accord, will run even faster if encouraged.
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
Quit thinking that you must halt before the barrier of inner negativity. You need not. You can crash through whatever we see a negative state, that is where we can destroy it.
You are under the unfortunate delusion that simply because you run away from danger, you have no courage. You're confusing courage with wisdom.
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.
Have the courage of your desire.
Gissing, George Robert
The brave and bold persist even against fortune; the timid and cowardly rush to despair though fear alone.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
I dare to do all that may become a man: who dares do more is none.
At the bottom of not a little of the bravery that appears in the world, there lurks a miserable cowardice. Men will face powder and steel because they have not the courage to face public opinion.
Chapin, Edwin Hubbel
'Tis easy enough to be pleasant, When life flows along like a song; But the man worth while is the one who will smile when everything goes dead wrong.
Wilcox, Ella Wheeler
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare.
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
There is another side to chivalry. If it dispenses leniency, it may with equal justification invoke control.
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.
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke.
Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.
The bravest are the most tender; the loving are the daring.
The more thou dost advance, the more thy feet pitfalls will meet. The Path that leadeth on is lighted by one fire -- the light of daring burning in the heart. The more one dares, the more he shall obtain. The more he fears, the more that light shall pale
Blavatsky, Helena Petrova
What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
Gogh, Vincent Van
'Tis much he dares; and, to that dauntless temper of his mind, he hath a wisdom that doth guide his valour to act in safety.
Do not fear, for those who are with us, are more than those who are with them. [2 Kings 6:16]
True courage is not the brutal force of vulgar heroes. Rather the firm resolve of virtue and reason.
Whitehead, Alfred North
I'm very brave generally, he went on in a low voice: only today I happen to have a headache.
