The stories of past courage… can offer hope, they can provide inspiration. But they cannot supply courage itself. For this each man must look into his own soul.
John F. Kennedy
All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them.
A man full of courage is also full of faith.
Courage is grace under pressure.
Courage is the first of human qualities, because it is the quality which guarantees all others.
Courage is resistance to fear; mastery of fear – not absence of fear.
Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die.
G. K. Chesterton
Perfect courage is todo without witnesses what one would be capable of doing before all the world.
We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face … we must do that which we think we cannot.
The fact is, that to do anything in the world worth doing, we must not stand back shivering and thinking of the cold and danger, but jump in and scramble through as well as we can.
In order to discover new lands, one must be willing to lose sight of the shore for a very long time.
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
You can’t test courage cautiously.
It is easy to be brave from a safe distance.
I’d rather give my life than be afraid to give it.
Lyndon Baines Johnson
