Top 10 Quotes On The Meaning Of Courage


Typically, we think expressions of courage are demonstrated
through physical acts, such as the actions of soldiers in battle,
or fire fighters battling a blaze.

These actions require courage, no question.

However, I’m here to tell you that courage can be “silent”, too.
Such as the courage it takes to become self-employed.

This is particularly true when one is confronted with the
reality that a regular paycheck is not forthcoming.


Some of the greatest quotes ever written have been made
on the quality of courage.

I am dedicating my top 10 quotes on courage to solo business
owners everywhere. As Neal Young says,”long may you run!”

*”We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.

* “Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak;
courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”
~Winston Churchill

* “Success is not final, failure is not fatal:
it is the courage to continue that counts.”
~Winston Churchill

* “Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.”
~Mark Twain

* “It is curious that physical courage should be
so common in the world and moral courage so rare.”
~Mark Twain

*  “Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.”
~Bruce Lee

* “One man with courage is a majority.”
~Thomas Jefferson

* “You will never do anything in this world without courage.
It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.”

* “History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived,
but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.”
~Maya Angelou

* “We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by
each experience in which we really stop to look fear
in the face… we must do that which we think we cannot.”
~Eleanor Roosevelt

    Michael- I have practiced meditation for 7 years now and I find that it helps calm my nerves and my fears. Generally, I meditate for about 30 minutes daily. I highly encourage anybody to try it!
    Love your posts!

      I actually meditate myself, Ricardo. And I couldn’t agree with you more. The key is to be consistent. Meditating has many health related benefits as well. It can lower blood pressure, and lower your resting heart rate. I encourage anyone to give it a try. Thanks for your input, Ricardo!
