Famous quotes containing the word courage:

    People are capable of doing an awful lot when they have no choice and I had no choice. Courage is when you have choices.
    Terry Anderson, U.S. hostage. International Herald Tribune (Paris, May 6, 1992)

    I can shake off everything if I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn. But, and that is the great question, will I ever be able to write anything great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, for I can recapture everything when I write, my thoughts, my ideals and my fantasies.
    Anne Frank (1929–1945)

    Near this spot are deposited the remains of one who possessed Beauty without Vanity, Strength without Insolence, Courage without Ferocity, and all the Virtues of Man without his Vices. This praise, which would be unmeaning Flattery, if inscribed over human ashes, is but a just Tribute to the Memory of BOATSWAIN, a Dog.
    John Cam Hobhouse (1786–1869)
