Courage is refusing to back down when you are right, consequences be damned!

Couragous is what you are called by those who run and hide!

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Winston Churchill

Courage is when you forge ahead on your own path and take all challenges head on, when your defeated, you learn from it and keep forging ahead.

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow.?

I'd seen such fear before, especially during the bad days of the Korean War. If we didn't get a hold of these guys, get a little discipline and a defensive perimeter in a hurry, we might find ourselves very dead. Very soon.

I grabbed Rangers and aircrew by the back of their jackets and seat of their pants, shouting and pulling and pushing until we had a half-assed 360-degree perimeter around the downed bird. Almost every man was wounded, but they were game.

On the battlefield when things are bad it takes only a few brave men to turn things around. It's been my experience in battle that out of ten men, only one or two are natural fighters. But once a fighter shouts, "Follow me" and charges, the rest are inspired to follow. In this instance, the Rangers, even bloodied, remained fighters to a man.


-Colonel David Hackworth quoted from Steel My Soldiers' Hearts


I'll add that Colonel Hackworth was cleaning up another glory hunting officer's mess here. He didn't have to do it, and as Battalion CO, he didn't have to go in himself. But he did it because he cared for his men, and that's the other component of courage.

Courage is the first and only moral virtue. Kindness, Honesty, Piety,....none of these Virtues are virtues by itself.

When one is kind only without fear of repercussion...
When one is honest but will lie under threat...
When one swears faith to God but shouts heresy as soon as danger looms...

All these things show a lack of courage, and without courage, all other virtues become pale, transient things with no substance. Only courage has any real weight.

(Not my words)

courage is will power, will power is discipline, discipline is determination, determination is persistence, persistence is never giving up and never giving up is how winners are made. If you posses these qualities then you have the courage to face anything

Who wrote that? I wrote this the other day, no lie:
"Courage is the cardinal virtue from which all others descend.
All vice, petiness, iniquity and depravity descend ultimately from cowardice."
