Courage Quotes

A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.

Jean Paul Richter

Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.

C.S. Lewis

It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful. There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

Alan Cohen

Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.

C.S. Lewis

Courage is the art of being the only one who knows you're scared to death.

Earl Wilson

I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.

Rosa Parks

Courage is never to let your actions be influenced by your fears.

Arthur Koestler

Courage, in the final analysis, is nothing but an affirmative answer to the shocks of existence.

Kurt Goldstein

Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.

Dorothy Thompson

One isn't necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.

Maya Angelou

You don't develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.

Epicurus

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Winston Churchill

You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.

Aristotle

Love bravely, live bravely, be courageous, there's really nothing to lose.

Andrew Jackson

Who hath not known ill fortune, never knew himself, or his own virtue.

Mallett

To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Once you have courage to look upon evil, seeing it for what it is and naming it by its true name, it is powerless against you, and you can destroy it.

Lloyd Chudley Alexander

Value of a man depends upon his courage; his veracity depends upon his self-respect and his chastity depends upon his sense of honor.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

Maya Angelou

Hope has two beautiful daughters. Their names are anger and courage; anger at the way things are, and courage to see that they do not remain the way they are.

St. Augustine of Hippo

We were always adroiter with objects than lives, and more facile at courage than kindness: from the moment the first flint was flaked this landing was merely a matter of time. But our selves, like Adam's, still don't fit us exactly, modern only in this our lack of decorum.

Wystan Hugh Auden

Instead of this, I tell what I hope will pass as truth. A blunt thing, not lovely. The truth is seldom welcome, especially at dinner, though I am good at what I do. My trade is courage and atrocities. I look at them and do not condemn. I write things down the way they happened, as near as can be remembered. I dont ask why, because it is mostly the same. Wars happen because the ones who start them think they can win.
