Famous quotes containing the word courage:

    With a balanced combination of the two principal energies from mother and father, a girl can both be in touch with her womanly strengths and be a powerful force in the world—strong and nurturing, decisive and caring, goal- oriented and aware of the needs of others. She has the courage to voice what she thinks and feels and the strength to follow her destiny.
    Jeanne Elium (20th century)

    And the shuttle never falters, but to draw an encouraging conclusion
    From this would be considerable, too odd. Why not just
    Breathe in with the courage of each day, recognizing yourself as one
    Who must with difficulty get down from high places?
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    He was one whose glory was an inner glory, one who placed culture above prosperity, fairness above profit, generosity above possessions, hospitality above comfort, courtesy above triumph, courage above safety, kindness above personal welfare, honor above success.
    Sarah Patton Boyle, U.S. civil rights activist and author. The Desegregated Heart, part 1, ch. 1 (1962)
