Faith & Prayer
Be sure you put your feet in the right place, and then stand firm.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage.
And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
One man with courage makes a majority.
There are very few monsters who warrant the fear we have of them.
To fear is one thing. To let fear grab you by the tail and swing you around is another.
Sometimes you have to take the leap, and build your wings on the way down.
Courage is fear that has said its prayers.
Risk! Risk anything!...Do the hardest thing on earth for you. Act for yourself. Face the truth.
Never grow a wishbone, daughter, where your backbone ought to be.
Courage is the ladder on which all the other virtues mount.
Until you're ready to look foolish, you'll never have the possibility of being great.
Behold the turtle. He only makes progress when he sticks his neck out.
