The opposite of courage in our society is not cowardice, it is conformity.
“How few there are who have courage enough to own their faults, or resolution enough to mend them.”
“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”
Efforts and Courage are not enough without purpose and direction.
“Decision is a risk rooted in the courage of being free.”
(I took a class from Dr.Tillich when I was in college. This gentleman was ‘regarded as one the most influential theologians of the twentieth century’ JL)
Courage is being scared to death…….and saddling up anyway.
Wisdom is learning to let go when you want to hang on. Courage is learning to hang on when you want to let go.
It is curious that physical courage should be so common and moral courage so rare.
