“I’ve been through it all, baby.
I’m Mother Courage.”
“Let us go forth with fear and courage and rage
to save the world.”
“Courage is being scared to death
and saddling up anyway.”
“Courage is fear
that has said its prayers.”
-Karle Wilson Baker
“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak;
courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”
“The secret of happiness is freedom, and
the secret of freedom is courage.”
