Some proverbs for us to read and think them over.

-A coward dies a thousand times before his death. The valiant never tastes of death but once.
-All problems become smaller if you don’t dodge them, but confront them. Touch a thistle timidly, and it pricks you; grasp it boldly, and its spines crumble.
-Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
-Courage easily finds its own eloquence.
-Courage is like a muscle; it is strengthened by use.
-Courage is like love, it must have hope for nourishment.
-Courage is not the lack of fear. It is acting in spite of it.
-Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others.
-Every great work, every big accomplishment, has been brought into manifestation through holding to the vision, and often just before the big achievement, comes apparent failure and discouragement.
-Everyone has talent. What is rare is the courage to follow that talent to dark place where it leads.
-Few things are more attractive than courage, cheerfulness and optimism. But they take on an extra dimension when you realize that they are not a lucky assembly of character traits, but the result of an act of will—a deliberate attempt to tackle an unkind destiny with strength of purpose and good humor.
-Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you.
-Great occasions do not make heroes or cowards; they simply unveil them to the eyes. Silently and imperceptibly, as we wake or sleep, we grow strong or we grow weak, and at last some crisis shows us what we have become.
-If we could be heroes, if just for one day.
-If you're careful enough, nothing bad or good will ever happen to you.
-Life is a compromise of what your ego wants to do, what experience tells you to do, and what nerves let you do.
-One man with courage makes a majority.
-The greatest test of courage on the earth is to bear defeat without losing heart.

With Love, Amma-Nana
