Explore the value of Courage
No one has yet computed how many imaginary triumphs are silently celebrated by people each year to keep up their courage.
The stories of past courage...can teach, they can offer hope, they can provide inspiration. But they cannot supply courage itself. For this each man must look into his own soul.
John F. Kennedy

Augustine of Hippo
As for courage and will we cannot measure how much of each lies within us, we can only trust there will be sufficient to carry through trials which may lie ahead.
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.
Sir Winston Churchill
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
Carl Hermann Voss
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.
