than to live like a jackal for a hundred years.
-Sultan Fateh Ali Tipu
Every man dies.
Not every man truly lives.
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak;
courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
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.
Without courage, wisdom bears no fruit.
Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities,
because it is the quality which guarantees all others.
Creativity requires the courage to let go of certainties.
With courage you will dare to take risks,
have the strength to be compassionate,
and the wisdom to be humble.
Courage is the foundation of integrity.
One isn't necessarily born with courage,
but one is born with potential.

We can't be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.
When a resolute young fellow
steps up to the great bully, the world,
and takes him boldly by the beard,
he is often surprised to find it comes off in his hand,
and that it was only tied on to scare away the timid adventurers.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily.
To not dare is to lose oneself.
It is not the critic who counts,
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled,
or where the doer of deeds could have done better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood,
who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again,
who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions,
and spends himself in a worthy cause,
who at best knows achievement
and who at the worst if he fails
at least fails while daring greatly
so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls
who know neither victory nor defeat.
Courage is not the absence of fear,
but rather the judgment that something else
is more important than fear.
Courage is being afraid but going on anyhow.
Fear and courage are brothers.
I'm not funny. What I am is brave.
Courage is never to let your actions
be influenced by your fears.
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.
Courage is the art of being the only one
who knows you're scared to death.
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman,
before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
-John Quincy Adams
Courage is being scared to death,
but saddling up anyway.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear-
not absence of fear.
A hero is no braver than an ordinary man,
but he is braver five minutes longer.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
