Best Quotes about Courage
Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
It takes a certain courage and a certain greatness to be truly base.
One who never turned his back but marched breast forward, never doubted clouds would break, Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph,
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare.
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 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
Have the courage of your desire.
Gissing, George Robert
I'm very brave generally, he went on in a low voice: only today I happen to have a headache.
Courage -- a perfect sensibility of the measure of danger, and a mental willingness to endure it.
Sherman, William T.
A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.
Jean Paul Richter
The brave person thinks of themselves last of all.
Schiller, Johann Friedrich Von
Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. [Ephesians 6:10]
It's better to be a lion for a day, than a sheep all your life.
Kenny, Sister Elizabeth
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
The courage we desire and prize is not the courage to die decently, but to live manfully.
Be courageous. I have seen many depressions in business. Always America has emerged from these stronger and more prosperous. Be brave as your fathers before you. Have faith! Go forward!
Edison, Thomas A.
I advise you to say your dream is possible and then overcome all inconveniences, ignore all the hassles and take a running leap through the hoop, even if it is in flames.
Bravery is the capacity to perform properly even when scared half to death.
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
Fortune and love favor the brave.
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.
Nothing recommends a man to the female mind than courage.
When you meet your antagonist, do everything in a mild and agreeable manner. Let your courage be as keen, but at the same time as polished, as your sword.
Richard Brinsley Sheridan
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
I never thought much of the courage of a lion tamer. Inside the cage he is at least safe from people.
Shaw, George Bernard
'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
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.
If I were asked to give what I consider the single most useful bit of advice for all humanity it would be this: Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life and when it comes, hold you head high, look it squarely in the eye and say, I will be bigger than you. You cannot defeat me.
The brave and bold persist even against fortune; the timid and cowardly rush to despair though fear alone.
Tacitus, Publius Cornelius
Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance.
No one reaches a high position without daring.
Let bravery be thy choice, but not bravado.
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.
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
Never ask the Gods for life set free from grief, but ask for courage that endureth long.
Menander of Athens
The real acid test of courage is to be just your honest self when everybody is trying to be like somebody else.
Is he alone who has courage on his right hand and faith on his left hand?
Lindbergh, Charles A.
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 human race afraid of nothing, rushes on through every crime.
Anybody with a little guts and the desire to apply himself can make it, he can make anything he wants to make of himself.
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
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 like love; it must have hope to nourish it.
Noah was a brave man to sail in a wooden boat with two termites.
Courage follows action.
Douglas, Mack R.
Be larger than your task.
Marden, Orison Swett
He who dies before many witnesses always does so with courage.
Private bravery is often the price of personal victory.
Courage is getting away from death by continually coming within an inch of it.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion. [Proverbs 28:1]
