Explore the value of Courage
William G.T. Shedd
If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place.
Every heart that has beat strong and cheerfully has left a hopeful impulse behind it in the world, and bettered the tradition of mankind.
Robert Louis Stevenson
To be courageous requires no exceptional qualifications, no magic formula. It's an opportunity that sooner or later is presented to us all and each person must look for that courage in his own soul.
John F. Kennedy
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.
To dream anything that you want to dream. That's the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do. That is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself to test your limits. That is the courage to succeed.
With courage you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate, and the wisdom to be humble. Courage is the foundation of integrity.
The courage to imagine the otherwise is our greatest resource, adding color and suspense to all our life.

Words I live by from Amelia Earhart - Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace. The soul that knows it not, knows no relief from little things, knows not the livid loneliness of fear, nor mountain heights where bitter joy can hear the sound of wings. When did you last feel joy?
Courage is my character.
