True valor, friends, on virtue founded strong,
Meets all events alike.
- David Mallet (originally Malloch)
The human race are sons of sorrow born;
And each must have his portion. Vulgar minds
Refuse or cranch beneath their load: the brave
Bears theirs without repining.
- David Mallet and James Thomson
A team is where a boy can prove his courage on his own. A gang is where a coward goes to hide.
- Mickey Mantle
Much danger makes great hearts most resolute.
- John Marston
God holds with the strong.
- Giuseppe Mazzini
Courage never to submit of yield.
- John Milton
No thought of flight,
None of retreat, no unbecoming deed
That argued fear; each on himself relied,
As only in his arm the moment lay
- John Milton
Stand fast * * *
And all temptation to transgress repel.
- John Milton
I argue not
Against Heaven's hand or will, nor bate a jot
Of heart or hope; but still bear up and steer
- John Milton, Sonnet--To Cyriack Skinner
What we want is men with a little courage to stead up for Christ. When Christianity wakes up, and every child that belongs to the Lord is willing to speak for Him, is willing to work for Him, and, if need be, willing to die for Him, then Christianity will advance, and we shall see the work of the Lord prosper.
- Dwight Lyman Moody
It takes courage to push things forward.
- Marjorie "Mo" Mowlam,
in the London "Guardian"
No captain can do very wrong if he places his ship alongside that of the enemy.
- Lord Horatio Nelson, Viscount Nelson
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.
- Anais Nin
Yet it may be more lofty courage dwells
In one weak heart which braves an adverse fate,
Than his whose ardent soul indignant swells,
Warm'd by the fight, or cheer'd through high debate.
- Lady Caroline Sheridan Norton (Caroline Elizabeth Sarah Norton)
Courage and cheerfulness will not only carry you over the rough places in life, but will enable you to bring comfort and help to the weak-hearted and will console you in the sad hours.
- Sir William Osler
The burden which is well borne becomes light.
[Lat., Leve fit quod bene fertur onus.]
- Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso), Amorum
(I, 2, 10)
Courage conquers all things; it even gives strength to the body.
[Lat., Animus tamen omnia vincit; ille etiam vires corpus habere facit.]
- Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso),
Epistoloe Ex Ponto (II, 7, 75)
I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflections.
- Thomas Paine
Religion gives a man courage. * * * I men the higher moral courage which can look danger in the face unawed and undismayed; the courage that can encounter loss of ease, of wealth, of friends, of your own good name; the courage that can face a world full of howling and of scorn--ay, of loathing and of hate; can see all this with a smile, and, suffering it all, can stills toil on, conscious of the result, yet fearless still.
- Theodore Parker
True courage is like a kite; a contrary wind raises it higher.
- Jean-Antoine Petit-Senn
It does not matter a feather whether a man be supported by patron or client, if he himself wants courage.
[Lat., Animus tamen omnia vincit.
Ille etiam vires corpus habere facit.]
- Plautus (Titus Maccius Plautus),
Mostellaria (II, 1, 64)
Courage in danger is half the battle.
[Lat., Bonus animus in mala re, dimidium est mali.]
- Plautus (Titus Maccius Plautus), Pseudolus
(I, 5, 37)
Courage consists not in hazarding without fear, but being resolutely minded in a just cause.
To do an evil action is base; to do a good action without incurring danger is common enough; but it is the part of a good man to do great and noble deeds, though he risks every thing.
Courage, like cowardice, is undoubtedly contagious, but some persons are not liable to catch it.
- George Denison Prentice
