For one with courage, it never took a lifetime to begin living.
Behold the turtle. He makes progress only when he sticks his neck out.
James B. Conant
1893 — 1978
In order to achieve anything you must be brave enough to fail.
Timidity is the mother of convention.
You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.
1902 — 1983

If you want to walk on water, you’ve got to get out of the boat.
Every man has some fear. A man with no fear belongs in a mental institution.
Reject your sense of injury and the injury itself disappears.
Emperor Marcus Aurelius
121 — 180 A.D.
If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small.
The wicked flee when no man pursueth, but the righteous are bold as a lion.
Do something every day that scares you.
Fortune favors the bold.
You will never discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.
The greatest risk is the one not taken.
Even the boldest zebra fears the hungry lion.
If you’re not afraid to face the music you may some day lead the band.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear.
1933 — 1996
Some people believe that holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more courage to know when to let go and then do it.
1918 — 2002
