Courage Quotes and Sayings - famous, familiar, or meaningful

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice

at the end of the day saying,

"I will try again tomorrow.”

- Mary Anne Radmacher


Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.

- Mark Twain


It is curious - curious that physical courage should be so common in the world, and moral courage so rare

- Mark Twain

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


The opposite of courage in our society is not cowardice, it is conformity.

- Rollo May


Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.
- Raymond Lindquist

  1. I found all of these quite remarkable- especially Rollo May-- conformity-- I had never looked at it that way before! Thank you so much for sharing these quotes! :)

    So true, the world would definitely be a better place if moral courage was more common!

  4. Thank you! The following is a snippet from page 190 of Simply An Inspired Life...

    “Be Prepared.”
    “Be prepared for what?”
    “Why, for any old thing.” said Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting.
    [as quoted in the Boy Scout Handbook]

    For Baden-Powell, the motto, “Be Prepared,” meant more than just being ready for emergencies, it meant being ready for all challenges to mind and body - meeting all of life’s struggles with courage - happily and without regret - having done your best.

    Pretty smart, those scouts. The motto of the Boy Scouts, could profitably be a way of life for all of us.

  5. Here's a quote by Will Rogers: "Live your life so that whenever you lose, you are still ahead." from Seesee

  6. I do believe there are life struggles which are so overwhelming that to say they are "happily" met with courage would be unrealistic. Perhaps such challenges are met "willingly" or "fearlessly", but happiness does not factor in.

  7. It takes courage to forgive. Forgive everyone and everything for whatever reason. I believe this is the real reason any of us are here. Just let go and accept whatever circumstance you are in knowing this is here for the ultimate purpose of your growth. The act of forgiving can only increase our growth and courage.
