Who Me???…….”Courage quotes”
Courage is that rare quality in life that some possess and others lack. If you look for “courage quotes”, you may be surprised to find out that you do possess this quality. You don’t have to be Aristotle or Sir Winston Churchill to realize that courage is something we all have, but like so many other things, we do not know how to put this quality into action. You may be even more surprised to read some of these “courage quotes” and see who said them, I know I was.
Aristotle, the Greek philosopher, was a student of Plato and taught Alexander the Great. I’m sure one of the following courage quotes is something he shared with Alexander the Great. “You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.”
I mentioned above, you do not have to be a famous philosopher to have an opinion on courage and what it means to you. The next quote is from a long list of courage quotes that I have compiled and kept through the years. “Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” Christopher Robin (aka A.A. Milne) asks Pooh Bear to make the aforementioned promise to him. See, I told you there would be some surprises in our courage quotes. Here’s another one:
“The key to change… is to let go of fear.” Now you might think this quote is from a philosopher or motivational speaker, but the truth is Roseanne Cash, the country singer and wife of Johnny Cash, made this statement on stage one night. “Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you can lose.“ This is one of my favorite courage quotes, because it is simple and to the point. This quote was made by motivational speaker, teacher and coach, Tom Krause. Another one of my favorite courage quotes comes from the eloquent prime minister of England, Sir Winston Churchill. “Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” You may have to think about this one for a minute or two, but trust me when I say if you can master this practice, you got it made. “It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return, but what is the most painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let the person know how you feel.” Gotcha, didn’t think I’d go there did you? We have all experienced this, and if you haven’t then good for you. My absolute favorite courage quotes has been said by many in various ways, however the message is the same no matter how you say it. “If you can conceive it, and truly believe it, you will achieve it.” This is my mantra and the words I live by, so can you.
