Courage quotes and sayings

Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities . . . because it is the quality which guarantees all others. Winston Churchill British Prime Minister

The encouraging thing is that every time you meet a situation, though you may think at the time it is an impossibility and you go through the tortures of the damned, once you have met it and lived through it you find that forever after you are freer than you ever were before. If you can live through that you can live through anything. You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, `I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ The danger lies in refusing to face the fear, in not daring to come to grips with it. If you fail anywhere along the line, it will take away your confidence. You must make yourself succeed every time. You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt You Learn By Living (1960)

The desire for safety stands against every great and noble enterprise. Tacitus Roman historian

No captain can do very wrong if he places his ship alongside that of the enemy. Admiral Horatio Nelson

[Admiral Nelson’s counsel] guided me time and again.

They did attack, heroically, and when the battle was done, the enemy turned away.
All problems, personal, national, or combat, become smaller if you don’t dodge them, but confront them. Touch a thistle timidly, and it pricks you; grasp it boldly, and its spines crumble. Carry the battle to the enemy! Lay your ship alongside his! Admiral William “Bull” Halsey
