Explore the value of Courage
Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising, which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To Map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.
James Neil Hollingworth
If we study the lives of great men and women carefully and unemotionally we find that, invariably, greatness was developed, tested and revealed through the darker periods of their lives. One of the largest tributaries of the River of Greatness is always the Stream of Adversity.
Courage is a special kind of knowledge: the knowledge of how to fear what ought to be feared and how not to fear what ought not to be feared.
The courage to imagine the otherwise is our greatest resource, adding color and suspense to all our life.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It may take courage to embrace the possibilities of your own potential, but once you've flown past the summit of your fears, nothing will seem impossible.
I may be compelled to face danger, but never fear it, and while our soldiers can stand and fight, I can stand and feed and nurse them.
