Courage Quotes A-Z by Author|
There is a certain degree of satisfaction
in having the courage to admit one's errors.
It not only clears up the air of guilt and
defensiveness, but often helps solve the
problem created by the error.
Carnegie - Courage
Great spirits have always encountered violent
opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre
mind is incapable of understanding the man
who refuses to bow blindly to conventional
prejudices and chooses instead to express
his opinions courageously and honestly.
Einstein - True
Security is mostly a superstition. It does
not exist in nature, nor do the children
of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding
danger is no safer in the long run than
outright exposure. Life is either a daring
adventure, or nothing.
Keller - Courage
You cannot build character and courage by
taking away a man's initiative and independence.
Lincoln - Encouragement
I learned that courage was not the absence
of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave
man is not he who does not feel afraid,
but he who conquers that fear.
Mandela - Challenges
An act of heroism, of extraordinary courage,
the grandeur of it, won't easily inspire
us to act in imitation, but it can inspire
us to emulate its author. For that, we should
learn what we can of the whole experience
of the subject, the hero's life, as it was
before and after, and believe that trying
to emulate the character it reveals is one
tried way to prepare for the tests that
might await us and gain hope that our courage
will not be wanting in the moment.
McCain - Action
We are taught to understand, correctly, that courage is not the absence of
fear, but the capacity for action despite our fears.
McCain - Courage
The fact is that the average man's love
of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary, exactly
like his love of sense, justice and truth.
He is not actually happy when free; he is
uncomfortable, a bit alarmed, and intolerably
lonely. Liberty is not a thing for the great
masses of men. It is the exclusive possession
of a small and disreputable minority, like
knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a
special sort of man to understand and enjoy
liberty and he is usually an outlaw
in democratic societies.
L. Mencken - Democracy
So far no one had had enough courage and
intelligence to reveal me to my dear Germans.
My problems are new, my psychological horizon
frighteningly comprehensive, my language
bold and clear; there may well be no books
written in German which are richer in ideas
and more independent than mine.
Nietzsche - Intelligence
Anything's possible if you've got enough
K. Rowling - Optimistic
