If you've got a talent, protect it.
The most effective way to do it, is to do it.
Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines.
Be thine own palace, or the world's thy jail.
The secret of getting ahead is getting started.
Begin to be now what you will be hereafter.
If you think you can do it, you can.
Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.
Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.
Do not weep do not wax indignant. Understand.
Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
There are no easy answers' but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.
Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.
Courage is grace under pressure.
We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.
He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
