Explore the value of Courage
Louisa May Alcott
Loyalty to petrified opinions never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul in this world — and never will.
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.
If we study the lives of great men and women carefully and unemotionally we find that, invariably, greatness was developed, tested and revealed through the darker periods of their lives. One of the largest tributaries of the River of Greatness is always the Stream of Adversity.
Sarah Patton Boyle
No one has yet computed how many imaginary triumphs are silently celebrated by people each year to keep up their courage.
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.
William G.T. Shedd
