The Art of Courage
Words of Champions
The art of courage makes mountain-top men and women out of ordinary individuals. It is an essential ingredient in persons of outstanding achievement.
In the words of Sydney Smith, "A great deal of talent is lost for want of a little courage."
The art of courage causes some men and women to keep on trying where others have failed, and in rising above failure, to accomplish mighty deeds.
"Courage is the human virtue that counts most," wrote Robert Frost. It makes individuals venture into the unknown. It stretches their horizons. It enlarges their visions. Courage magnifies their capabilities.
The greatest test of courage on earth is to bear defeat without losing heart.
Persons of courage rise to the challenge, dare to try the untried and carry on in spite of defeat because they know it is only a temporary setback.
Persons of courage take over where others stop and they go on to win the important battles in sport, education, science, business and life.
