Quotes About Courage


I was looking through quotes, having focused on courage. It was really interesting to find some really good quotes concerning courage. Sometimes we all need courage to do certain things, make changes or attempt something that had been considered scary or somewhat feared. Remember how in the movie The Wizard of Oz, the Cowardly Lion so badly wanted courage? I really did find some really good quotes and I picked out 10 of them for today. I enjoyed reading them and I really do hope you kind readers enjoy them, too! 🙂

1.Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear~~Mark Twain

2.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.~~Maya Angelou

3.We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear~~Martin Luther King, Jr.

4.Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage~~Lao Tzu

5.It takes courage to show your dreams to someone else~~Erma Bombeck

6.What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?~~Vincent Van Gogh

7.Have the courage to act instead of react~~Oliver Wendell Holmes

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