Courage

"Courage is not having the strength to go on; it is going on when you don't have the strength. Industry and determination can do anything that genius and advantage can do and many things that they cannot." Theodore Roosevelt, (October 27, 1858 – January 6, 1919), often referred to as Teddy or TR, was an American statesman, author, explorer, soldier, naturalist, and reformer who served as the 26th President of the United States, from 1901 to 1909

"Everything you've ever wanted is on the other side of fear." George Addair

"He is a 'sheep in sheep's clothing.' " Winston Churchill, (1874–1965), British statesman; prime minister 1940–45 and 1951–55

"I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear." Rosa Parks, (1913–2005), US civil rights pioneer

"Keep your fears to yourself but share your courage with others." Robert Louis Stevenson, (1850–94), Scottish novelist, poet, and travel writer

One man with courage makes a majority. (Attributed to Andrew Jackson, but he never said it. Author James Parton published a three-volume Life of Andrew Jackson and on the title page he placed the epigraph "Desperate Courage Makes One a Majority." He put it in quotation marks but not in a way to suggest that Jackson Himself had said it.)

"Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears." Les Brown, motivational speaker
