12 Courage Quotes to Inspire You to Be Brave

From biblical tales to action hero movies, courage is a virtue that’s universally admired. Many stories portray the courageous knights, explorers and freedom fighters as people who are fearless and bold.

But in reality, courage doesn’t mean you’re not afraid. On the contrary: without fear, there is no courage.

Courage is about feeling the fear yet deciding to act anyway. Not in a reckless way, but thoughtfully taking necessary risks. More than just physical bravery, courage is also about keeping your head held high when life gets tough. It’s about standing up for what’s right, even if you might get hurt. As Brené Brown has shown us, there lies true courage in daring to be vulnerable.

Thankfully, courage isn’t something you’re born with or not – it’s a skill that can be cultivated. Do you want to be braver? Take a look at these 12 courage quotes.
