It takes a lot of courage
to release the familiar and seemingly secure,
to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security
in the adventurous and exciting,
for in movement there is life,
and in change there is power.
-Alan Cohen

To not dare is to lose oneself.

It is not the critic who counts,
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled,
or where the doer of deeds could have done better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood,
who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again,
who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions,
and spends himself in a worthy cause,
who at best knows achievement
and who at the worst if he fails
at least fails while daring greatly
so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls
who know neither victory nor defeat.
-Theodore Roosevelt

Courage is not the absence of fear,
but rather the judgment that something else
is more important than fear.

Fear and courage are brothers.

I'm not funny. What I am is brave.
-Lucille Ball

Courage is never to let your actions
be influenced by your fears.

Courage is the art of being the only one
who knows you're scared to death.
-Harold Wilson

Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman,
before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.

Courage is being scared to death,
but saddling up anyway.
-John Wayne

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear-
not absence of fear.
