Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not absence of fear ― Mark Twain

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage ― Anaïs Nin

Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the
shore ― André Gide

It is not the critic who counts;
not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man
who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly;
who errs and comes short again and again;
who knows great enthusiasms,
the great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,
and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while
so that his place shall never be
with those timid souls
who know neither victory or defeat -Theodore Roosevelt

The men who try to do something and fail are infinitely better than those who try to do nothing and succeed – Lloyd Jones

Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all – Dale Carnegie

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Do it, and then you will feel motivated to do it. – Zig Ziglar
