Explore the value of Courage
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
Sir Winston Churchill
Courage is not the towering oak that see storms come and go; it is the fragile blossom that opens in the snow.
Alice Mackenzie Swaim
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.
True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the courage to surpass others at whatever cost, but the courage to serve others at whatever the cost.
No one has yet computed how many imaginary triumphs are silently celebrated by people each year to keep up their courage.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Love is the most difficult and dangerous form of courage. Courage is the most desperate, admirable and noble kind of love.
