Best Quotes about Courage
But screw your courage to the sticking-place and we'll not fail.
It takes vision and courage to create -- it takes faith and courage to prove.
Young, Owen D.
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
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.
Don't foul, don't flinch. Hit the line hard.
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.
If we must fall, we should boldly meet the danger.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Courage is getting away from death by continually coming within an inch of it.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
I dare to do all that may become a man: who dares do more is none.
We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.
King Jr. Martin Luther
We can never be certain of our courage until we have faced danger.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
The brave person thinks of themselves last of all.
Schiller, Johann Friedrich Von
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.
Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare the truth thou hast, that all may share; Be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare.
Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
It is impossible to win the race unless you venture to run, impossible to win the victory unless you dare to battle.
DeVos, Richard M.
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
With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. [Psalms 18:29]
Nothing gives a fearful man more courage than another's fear.
A strong man and a waterfall always channel their own path.
Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
You've got to jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down.
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.
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.
True courage is a result of reasoning. A brave mind is always impregnable.
Because of a great love, one is courageous.
It takes a certain courage and a certain greatness to be truly base.
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.
Until the day of his death, no man can be sure of his courage.
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
I decided once and for all that I was going to make it or die.
For the man sound of body and serene of mind there is no such thing as bad weather; every day has its beauty, and storms which whip the blood do but make it pulse more vigorously.
Gissing, George Robert
You have to be tough.
Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance.
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 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.
Private bravery is often the price of personal victory.
The courage of life is often a less dramatic spectacle than the courage of the final moment; but it is no less a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy.
Kennedy, John F.
Part of courage is simple consistency.
Moral courage is a more rare commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence.
Kennedy, Robert F.
A person who walks in another's tracks leaves no footprints.
Grant what thou commandest and then command what thou wilt.
A great deal of talent is lost in the world for want of courage.
That's a valiant flea that dares eat his breakfast on the lip of a lion.
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
John Quincy Adams
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
He who dies before many witnesses always does so with courage.
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!
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 is like love; it must have hope to nourish it.
