Brave

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again. Wisely improve the present, it is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear and with a manly heart.

Stonewall Jackson

…my religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me…that is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave.

C.S. Lewis

Since it is so likely that children will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage.

Elizabeth Goudge

There’s nothing like protecting someone more frightened than one is oneself…to make one feel as brave as a lion…

C. S. Lewis

Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at its testing point.

Author Unknown

Mass deceit can quickly be dispelled if those who are for God show as much daring for truth as others do for evil.

Brian Jacques

Mice are my heroes because, like children, mice are little and have to learn to be courageous and use their wits.

Gregory the Great

An army chief on the battlefield has more respect for the soldier who, having once given way to flight, returns and attacks the enemy bravely than for the soldier who never turned tail, but neither ever performed any act of valor.

Helen Keller

We could never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world.

Thomas Paine

The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection.

Winston S. Churchill

Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.

Ernest Hemingway

“The coward dies a thousand deaths, the brave but one?’ ‘Of course. Who said it?’ ‘I don’t know.’ ‘He was probably a coward,’ she said. “He knew a great deal about cowards but nothing about the brave. The brave dies perhaps two thousand deaths if he’s intelligent. He simply doesn’t mention them.”

Zig Ziglar

F-E-A-R has two meanings: ‘Forget Everything And Run’ or ‘Face Everything And Rise.’ The choice is yours.
