Jean Paul Richter

Here is the answer which I will give to President Roosevelt. Give us the tools, and we will finish the job.
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.
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
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
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
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've been through it all, baby. I'm Mother Courage.
Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare the truth thou hast, that all may share; Be bold, proclaim it everywhere: They only live who dare.
Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.
Beaton, Sir Cecil
Most men have more courage than even they themselves think they have.
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.
Live as brave men and face adversity with stout hearts.
The scars you acquire while exercising courage will never make you feel inferior.
If we must fall, we should boldly meet the danger.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
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 stands halfway between cowardice and rashness, one of which is a lack, the other an excess of courage.
A person who walks in another's tracks leaves no footprints.
But you be strong and do not lose courage, for there is reward for your work. [ 2 Chronicles 15:7]
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.
I never thought much of the courage of a lion tamer. Inside the cage he is at least safe from people.

Marden, Orison Swett
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterwards.
Richter, Jean Paul
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
Courage is like love; it must have hope to nourish it.
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.
I would define true courage to be a perfect sensibility of the measure of danger, and a mental willingness to endure it.
Sherman, William T.
Screw up your courage, you screwed up everything else.
To love someone deeply gives you strength. Being loved by someone deeply gives you courage.
What a new face courage puts on everything!
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
This is the test of your manhood: How much is there left in you after you have lost everything outside of yourself?
Marden, Orison Swett
The real acid test of courage is to be just your honest self when everybody is trying to be like somebody else.
Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.
The world's male chivalry has perished out, but women are knights-errant to the last; and, if Cervantes had been greater still, he had made his Don a Donna.
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Don't foul, don't flinch. Hit the line hard.
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.
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 worst thing of all is standing by when folks are doing something wrong.
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!
