The only service a friend can really render is to keep up your courage by holding up to you a mirror in which you can see a noble image of yourself.
George Bernard Shaw
Courage is knowing what not to fear. Plato
Courage is the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees the others.
Courage is being scared to death... and saddling up anyway.
The courage of life is often a less dramatic spectacle than the courage of a final moment; but it is no less a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy.
John F. Kennedy
Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.
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.
History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.Maya Angelou
One man with courage is a majority.
Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities... because it is the quality which guarantees all others.Winston Churchill
We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear
Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.
C. S. Lewis
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. NelsonMandela
There are no easy answers' but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.
It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare.
Success is never final, failure is never fatal. It's courage that counts.
George S. Patton
He is a man of courage who does not run away, but remains at his post and fights against the enemy.
