I would rather be a coward than brave because people hurt you when you are brave.
A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.
Fortune and love favor the brave.
If you can't be brave then be determined. And you will end up in the same place.
—Lisa Scottoline in Killer Smile
Bravery is feeling fear but doing the thing anyway.
—Jennifer Donnelly in The Wild Rose
Some have been thought brave because they were afraid to run away.
Cruelty is easy, and it breeds only misery. Kindness is harder, and you have to be brave to give it. To be cruel, you can stay closed off from everyone, wear a mask, but to be kind, in essence, to show love, you have to make yourself vulnerable, show your true self to someone and open yourself up to rejection.
—L.H. Cosway in The Nature of Cruelty
Be brave, young lovers, and follow your star.
Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.
