Courage Is…

Time for another member of this series. I did one on love, which started it, and then two weeks ago I did one on hope, and they’re linked there if you’d like to go find them. This one is obviously about courage.

Courage is standing up to a bully, even though your heart is pounding in terror.

Courage is withstanding the jeers of those against your beliefs with your head up, even though your heart is breaking.

Courage is dashing into a fight to save your friends, forgetting your fear in the heat of the moment.

Courage is owning up to a mistake even though you know it’ll get you in trouble.

“Courage is living up to your destiny, even if it means fighting dragons.” (This was one my sister suggested and it made me laugh so I decided to share it.)

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the assessment that something else is more important than fear.” ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt.

And lastly, “Without fear, there cannot be courage.” ~ Eragon by Christopher Paolini.

  1. Yup. I (who is indeed her sister) thought of the fighting dragons one, because, like, the live action Alice in Wonderland? I dunno. Somehow that’s what came to mind, even though I havn’t seen that movie in a long time.
