When you meet your antagonist, do everything in a mild and agreeable manner. Let your courage be as keen, but at the same time as polished, as your sword.
Keep your fears to yourself, but share your courage with others.
Fortune helps the brave.
Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure , than to take rank with those poor spires who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory or defeat.
Courage is like love; it must have hope for nourishment.
If human beings had genuine courage, they'd wear their costumes every day of the year, not just on Halloween.
What is more mortifying than to feel you've missed the plum for want of courage to shake the tree?

No one is born to courage. Courage is a habit you develop after cowardice has gotten you nothing.
—Sabrina Jeffries in A Dangerous Love
