Never be afraid to try something new. Remember: An amateur built the Ark--professionals built the Titanic.
The courage to imagine the otherwise is our greatest resource, adding color and suspense to all our life.
Love is the most difficult and dangerous form of courage. Courage is the most desperate, admirable and noble kind of love.
Loyalty to petrified opinions never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul in this world — and never will.
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.
Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you 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 the end, requires some of the same courage which a soldier needs.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace. The soul that knows it not, knows no release from little things; knows not the livid loneliness of fear.
Be fearless. Have the courage to take risks. Go where there are no guarantees. Get out of your comfort zone even if it means being uncomfortable. The road less traveled is sometimes fraught with barricades bumps and uncharted terrain. But it is on that road where your character is truly tested. And have the courage to accept that you’re not perfect nothing is and no one is — and that’s OK.
