Courage from hearts and not from numbers grows.-Dryden.
Courage is, on all hands, considered as an essential of high character.-Froude.
Conscience is the root of all true courage; if a man would be brave let him obey his conscience.-J.F.Clarke.
Courage in danger is half the battle.-Plautus.
Courage that grows from constitution, often forsakes a man when he has occasion for it ; courage which arises from a sense of duty , acts in a uniform manner.-Addison.
True courage is not the brutal force of vulgar heroes, but the firm resolve of virtue and reason.-Paul Whitehead.
No man can answer for his courage who has never been in danger.-Rochefoucauld.
Physical courage which despises all danger, will make a man brave in one way; and moral courage, which despises all opinion, will make a man brave in another. The former would seem most necessary for the camp; the latter for the council; but to constitute a great man both are necessary.-Colton.
True courage is the result of reasoning . resolution lies more in the head than in the veins; and a just sense of honor and of infamy, of duty and of religion will carry us farther than all the force of mechanism. –Collier.
Courage ought to be guided by skill, and skill armed by courage. Hardiness should not darken wit, nor wit cool hardiness. Be valiant as men despising death, but confident as unwonted to be overcome.-Sir P.Sidney.
