Courage

Courage enlarges, cowardice diminishes resources. In desperate straits the fears of the timid aggravate the dangers that imperil the brave.
- Bovee, Christian Nevell
Courage Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Courage

1.
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
Bernanos, Georges

2.
Courage is a quality so necessary for maintaining virtue, that it is always respected, even when it is associated with vice.
Johnson, Samuel

3.
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.
Kierkegaard, SĀ°ren

4.
Act boldly and unseen forces will come to your aid.
Brande, Dorothea

5.
You have to be tough.
Ditka, Mike

6.
Courage enlarges, cowardice diminishes resources. In desperate straits the fears of the timid aggravate the dangers that imperil the brave.
Bovee, Christian Nevell

7.
Last, but by no means least, courage-moral courage, the courage of one's convictions, the courage to see things through. The world ;is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It's the age-old struggle-the roar of the crowd on one side and the voice of your ;conscience on the other.
Macarthur, Douglas

8.
Correction does much, but encouragement does more. Encouragement after censure is as the sun after a shower.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

9.
Part of courage is simple consistency.
Noonan, Peggy

10.
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

11.
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.
Howard, Vernon

12.
The most glorious moments in your life are not the so-called days of success, but rather those days when out of dejection and despair you feel rise in you a challenge to life, and the promise of future accomplishments.
Flaubert, Gustave

13.
Have the courage of your desire.
Gissing, George Robert

14.
But screw your courage to the sticking-place and we'll not fail.
Shakespeare, William

15.
Grant what thou commandest and then command what thou wilt.
Augustine, St.

16.
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.
Carlson, Curtis

17.
What you RESIST, PERSISTS. If you take ownership and deal with things that are bothering you, then, in the very process of dealing with them they very often will go away.

18.
Courage consists not in blindly overlooking danger, but in seeing it, and conquering it.
Richter, Jean Paul

19.
What you have outside you counts less than what you have inside you.
Forbes, B. C.

20.
Moral courage is a more rare commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence.
Kennedy, Robert F.

21.
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. [Joshua 1:9]
Bible

22.
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.

23.
Is he alone who has courage on his right hand and faith on his left hand?
Lindbergh, Charles A.

24.
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

25.
Rest not. Life is sweeping by; go and dare before you die. Something mighty and sublime, leave behind to conquer time.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

26.
I've been through it all, baby. I'm Mother Courage.
Taylor, Elizabeth

27.
The burden which is well borne becomes light.
Ovid

28.
The human race afraid of nothing, rushes on through every crime.
Horace

29.
I decided once and for all that I was going to make it or die.
Johnson, John

30.
The worst thing of all is standing by when folks are doing something wrong.
Kirby Larson

31.
No one reaches a high position without daring.
Syrus, Publilius

32.
Courage is not the towering oak that sees storms come and go; it is the fragile blossom that opens in the snow.
Swaim, Alice Mackenzie

33.
Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.

34.
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.
Nin, Anais

35.
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

36.
The finest gift you can give anyone is encouragement. Yet, almost no one gets the encouragement they need to grow to their full potential. If everyone received the encouragement they need to grow, the genius in most everyone would blossom and the world would produce abundance beyond the wildest dreams. We would have more than one Einstein, Edison, Schweitzer, Mother Theresa, Dr. Salk and other great minds in a century.
Madwed, Sidney

37.
Courage follows action.
Douglas, Mack R.

38.
A lot of people do not muster the courage to live their dreams because they are afraid to die.
Brown, Les

39.
I am convinced that one of the biggest factors in success is the courage to undertake something.
Worsham, James A.

40.
Courage is like love; it must have hope to nourish it.
Bonaparte, Napoleon

41.
Better to die on one's feet than to live on one's knees.
Zapata, Emiliano

42.
The courage we desire and prize is not the courage to die decently, but to live manfully.
Carlyle, Thomas

43.
Live as brave men and face adversity with stout hearts.
Horace

44.
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.

45.
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.
Hugo, Victor

46.
We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.
King Jr. Martin Luther

47.
Courage is the capacity to conduct oneself with restraint in times of prosperity and with courage and tenacity when things do not go well.
Forrestal, James V.

48.
You are under the unfortunate delusion that simply because you run away from danger, you have no courage. You're confusing courage with wisdom.

49.
Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others.
Churchill, Winston

50.
Noah was a brave man to sail in a wooden boat with two termites.
