"Be bold!" first gate; "Be bold, be bold, and evermore be bold," second gate; "Be not too bold!" third gate.
      - Unattributed Author,
        inscription on the Gates of Busyrane

Courage that grows from constitution often forsakes a man when he has occasion for it; courage which arises from a sense of duty acts in a uniform manner.
      - Joseph Addison

True fortitude is seen in great exploits
  That justice warrants, and that wisdom guides;
    And all else is tow'ring phrenzy and distraction.
      - Joseph Addison

I think the Romans call it Stoicism.
      - Joseph Addison, Cato (act I, sc. 4)

Courage makes a man more than himself; for he is then himself plus his valor.
      - William R. Alger

Until the day of his death, no man can be sure of his courage.
      - Jean Anouilh

Courage is simply the willingness to be afraid and act anyway.
      - Robert Anthony

The ideal man bears the accidents of life with dignity and grace, the best of circumstances.
      - Aristotle

To struggle when hope is banished!
  To live when life's salt is gone!
    To dwell in a dream that's vanished!
      To endure, and go calmly on!
        The brave man is not he who feels no fear,
          For that were stupid and irrational;
            But he, whose noble soul its fear subdues,
              And bravely dares the danger nature shrinks from.
      - Joanna Baillie

Courage is the thing; all goes if courage goes.
      - Sir James Matthew Barrie

Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper whithersoever thou goest.
      - Bible, Joshua (ch. I, v. 7)

But straightway Jesus spake upto them saying, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.
      - Bible, Matthew (ch. XIV, v. 27)

The schoolboy, with his satchel in his hand,
  Whistling aloud to bear his courage up.
      - Robert Blair, The Grave (pt. I, l. 58)

It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.
      - Erma Bombeck

Courage enlarges, cowardice diminishes resources. In desperate straits the fears of the timid aggravate the dangers that imperil the brave. For cowards the road of desertion should be left open. They will carry over to the enemy nothing but their fears. The poltroon, like the scabbard, is an encumbrance when once the sword is drawn.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

Be courageous. Be independent. Only remember where the true courage and independence come from.
      - Phillips Brooks

The intent and not the deed
  Is in our power; and, therefore, who dares greatly
    Does greatly.
      - John Brown (1), Barbarossa

One who never turned his back but marched breast forward,
  Never doubted clouds would break,
    Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph,
      Held we fall to rise, are baffled to flight better,
        Sleep to wake.
      - Robert Browning, Epilogue--Asolando

Ah, never shall the land forget
  How gush'd the life-blood of the brave,
    Gush'd warm with hope and courage yet,
      Upon the soil they fought to save!
      - William Cullen Bryant

There is a courageous wisdom; there is also a false, reptile prudence, the result not of caution but of fear.
      - Edmund Burke

A real spirit
  Should neither court neglect, nor dread to bear it.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron)

Most of us have far more courage than we ever dreamed possible.
      - Dale Carnegie

Brave spirits are a balsam to themselves,
  There is a nobleness of mind that heals
    Wounds beyond salves.
      - William Cartwright

He who loses wealth loses much; he who loses a friend loses more; but he that loses his courage loses all.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra)

It is courage that vanquishes in war, and not good weapons.
      - Cervantes (Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra)
