Explore the value of 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
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
The only rule is, do what you really, impulsively, wish to do. But always act on your own responsibility, sincerely. And have the courage of your own strong emotion.
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.
What may look like a small act of courage is courage nevertheless. The important thing is to be willing to take a step forward.
Dr. Daisaku Ikeda
Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them, we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.
