Explore the value of Courage
Robert Louis Stevenson
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
George R. Gissing
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
This is the art of courage: to see things as they are and still believe that the victory lies not with those who avoid the bad, but those who taste, in living awareness, every drop of the good.
Develop your own compass, and trust it. Take risks, dare to fail, remember the first person through the wall always gets hurt.
We must have the courage to bet on our ideas, to take the calculated risk, and to act. Everyday living requires courage if life is to be effective and bring happiness.
