Best Quotes about Courage
Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed we possessed.
Let us train our minds to desire what the situation demands.
Do not fear, for those who are with us, are more than those who are with them. [2 Kings 6:16]
Live as brave men and face adversity with stout hearts.
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
True courage is not the brutal force of vulgar heroes. Rather the firm resolve of virtue and reason.
Whitehead, Alfred North
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.
Act boldly and unseen forces will come to your aid.
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.
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.
Courage consists not in hazarding without fear; but being resolutely minded in a just cause.
I'd rather give my life than be afraid to give it.
Johnson, Lyndon B.
The burden which is well borne becomes light.
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
You've got to jump off cliffs and build your wings on the way down.
It takes courage to attempt the impossible. What would we think of Moses today if when it was time to part the red sea, he had said Why don't you guys go build a bridge?
What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
Gogh, Vincent Van
Here I stand; I can do no other. God help me. Amen!
Courage brother, do not stumble, though thy path be dark as night: There is a star to guide the humble, Trust in God, and do the right. Let the road be dark and dreary and its end far out of sight. Face it bravely, strong or weary. Trust in God, and do the right.
Real courage is when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.
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
Whether you be man or woman you will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.
Anybody with a little guts and the desire to apply himself can make it, he can make anything he wants to make of himself.
You are merely not feeling equal to the tasks before you.
I dare to do all that may become a man: who dares do more is none.
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.
Fortune and love favor the brave.
I am convinced that one of the biggest factors in success is the courage to undertake something.
Worsham, James A.
A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success.
Noah was a brave man to sail in a wooden boat with two termites.
But screw your courage to the sticking-place and we'll not fail.
A man of courage is also full of faith.
Cicero, Marcus T.
Success is never final and failure is never fatal. It's courage that counts.
Courage is getting away from death by continually coming within an inch of it.
Chesterton, Gilbert K.
I would rather be a coward than brave because people hurt you when you are brave.
E. M. Forster
And what he greatly thought, he nobly dared.
Fortune can take away riches, but not courage.
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
Good courage in a bad affair is half of the evil overcome.
Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to circumstance.
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.
The worst thing of all is standing by when folks are doing something wrong.
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 is spelled I-N-T-E-G-R-I-T-Y.
Schuller, Robert H.
Some have been thought brave because they were afraid to run away.
Courage conquers all things: it even gives strength to the body.
We are made strong by the difficulties we face not by those we evade.
Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. [Ephesians 6:10]
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.
Courage and conviction are powerful weapons against an enemy who depends only on fists or guns. Animals know when you are afraid; a coward knows when you are not.
