Never stand begging for that which you have the power to earn.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.
It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is braver five minutes longer.
How few there are who have courage enough to own their faults, or resolution enough to mend them.
What helps luck is a habit of watching for opportunities, of having a patient, but restless mind, of sacrificing one's ease or vanity, of uniting a love of detail to foresight, and of passing through hard times bravely and cheerfully.
It takes a great deal of courage to stand up to your enemies, but even more to stand up to your friends.
Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.
None but a coward dares to boast that he has never known fear.
