Thoughts on Courage

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.  The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.  (Nelson Mandela)

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.  (Winston Churchill)

You will never do anything in this world without courage.  It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.  (Aristotle)

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.  (Mark Twain)
