Best Quotes about Courage
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.
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
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare.
All my life I knew that there was all the money you could want out there. All you have to do is go after it.
Grant what thou commandest and then command what thou wilt.
All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
Better to die on one's feet than to live on one's knees.
We can never be certain of our courage until we have faced danger.
La Rochefoucauld, Francois De
Some have been thought brave because they were afraid to run away.
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.
Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
Most men have more courage than even they themselves think they have.
Private bravery is often the price of personal victory.
Courage -- a perfect sensibility of the measure of danger, and a mental willingness to endure it.
Sherman, William T.
It takes as much courage to have tried and failed as it does to have tried and succeeded.
Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
Much of what we call evil is due entirely to the way men take the phenomenon. It can so often be converted into a bracing and tonic good by a simple change of the sufferer's inner attitude from one of fear to one of fight; its string can so often depart and turn into a relish when, after vainly seeking to shun it, we agree to face about and bear it...
I would rather be a coward than brave because people hurt you when you are brave.
E. M. Forster
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.
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.
Bravery has no place where it can avail nothing.
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
Screw up your courage, you screwed up everything else.
Don't foul, don't flinch. Hit the line hard.
We need to find the courage to say NO to the things and people that are not serving us if we want to rediscover ourselves and live our lives with authenticity.
Angelis, Barbara De
I decided once and for all that I was going to make it or die.
Many would be cowards if they had courage enough.
Gallantry to women -- the sure road to their favor -- is nothing but the appearance of extreme devotion to all their wants and wishes, a delight in their satisfaction, and a confidence in yourself as being able to contribute toward it.
When valour preys on reason, it eats the sword it fights with.
Wealth lost is something lost, honor lost is something lost: Courage lost all is lost.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Never ask the Gods for life set free from grief, but ask for courage that endureth long.
Menander of Athens
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterwards.
Richter, Jean Paul
Courage is spelled I-N-T-E-G-R-I-T-Y.
Schuller, Robert H.
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.
You've got to jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down.
But you be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work. [ 2 Chronicles 15:7]
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.
The more wit the less courage.
If we must fall, we should boldly meet the danger.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Courage is a special kind of knowledge: the knowledge of how to fear what ought to be feared and how not to fear what ought no to be feared.
I never thought much of the courage of a lion tamer. Inside the cage he is at least safe from people.
Shaw, George Bernard
Courage is sometimes frail as hope is frail: a fragile shoot between two stones that grows brave toward the sun though warmth and brightness fail, striving and faith the only strength it knows.
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
Have the courage to live. Anyone can die.
Stride forward with a firm, steady step knowing with a deep, certain inner knowing that you will reach every goal you set yourselves, that you will achieve every aim .
To have courage for whatever comes in life -- everything lies in that.
Teresa of Avila, St.
Courage is poorly housed that dwells in numbers; the lion never counts the herd that are about him, nor weighs how many flocks he has to scatter.
Pugnacity is a form of courage, but a very bad form.
