Dose of Courage

You learn you can do your best even when it’s hard, even when you’re tired and maybe hurting a little bit. It feels good to show some courage. ~ Joe Namath

Courage is more exhilarating than fear, and in the long run it is easier. We do not have to become heroes overnight. Just a step at a time, meeting each thing that comes up, seeing it is not as dreadful as it appeared, discovering we have the strength to stare it down. ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Anything's possible if you've got enough nerve. ~ J.K. Rowling

To dare is to lose one's footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself. ~ Søren Kierkegaard

The spiritual warrior hides from nothing. We jump into the fire, we dive into the ocean. We become the sea. ~ Charlotte Kasl

I like Roosevelt quote, "just one step at a time" - is all we can do

Alot of words to live by, good wisdom in all. Courage comes from within and is expressed without. Thanks for sharing those quotes.
