Bravery quotes by J.M. Darhower
#1. I don't know if she was born this goddamn fearless, if it's encoded in her DNA, gifted to her by her flawed bloodline, or if it's something life taught her, something molded into her all those years she was unknowingly on the run. I wonder if she got that from her father, or if it was me who caused her bravery. #Quote by J.M. Darhower

Bravery quotes by Lorrie Moore
#6. Pulling through is what people do around here. There is a kind of bravery in their lives that isn't bravery at all. It is automatic, unflinching, a mix of man and machine, consuming and unquestionable obligation meeting illness move for move in a giant even-steven game of chess – an unending round of something that looks like shadowboxing, though between love and death, which is the shadow? "Everyone admires us for our courage," says one man. "They have no idea what they're talking about."

"Courage requires options," the man adds.

"There are options," says a woman with a thick suede headband. "You could give up. You could fall apart."

"No you can't. Nobody does. I've never seen it," says the man. "Well, not really fall apart. #Quote by Lorrie Moore

Rowling

Bravery quotes by Katandra Jackson Nunnally
#15. What was the difference between Anne Frank and any other 15 year old girl living the same nightmare? Nothing! Aside from the fact that Anne spoke through her writings while others kept silent. Someone very special to me recently asked how can I write such personal things as child abuse, relationship problems, sexual addiction, and not fear how the family will feel about these revealings. I have the audacity to write such things because it's MY story. Not my parents, not my brothers, not my aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents... MINE. Note to those contemplating writing nonfiction. Write the story. It's yours to tell. Nevermind how your family will feel. Those that love you will not judge you. I promise. Do not let your testimony be in vain. #Quote by Katandra Jackson Nunnally

Bravery quotes by Diana Holquist
#18. Not the title. Not the riches. Not the bravery. Not the glory. Just the man. The simple man, standing before her, looking into her eyes as if he saw just the woman. For the first time in their lives, they were truly alone.
- From The Dulcet Duke #Quote by Diana Holquist

Bravery quotes by Patricia Briggs
#20. I would never disrespect your grandmother's rolling pin. Your old pack did everything in their power to turn you into a victim, and when that crazy wolf started for me, you still grabbed the rolling pin to defend me from him, even though you were terrified of him. I think it is the bravest thing I have ever seen. And possibly the only time anyone has tried to defend me since I reached adulthood. #Quote by Patricia Briggs

Bravery quotes by Alice Boyes
#24. If you doubt it, remember Wizard of Oz, in which the Lion worried he didn't have bravery and the Tin Man worried he didn't have a heart. They had those things all along; they just didn't recognize those qualities in themselves. #Quote by Alice Boyes

Bravery quotes by Taylor Schilling
#26. It takes a lot of bravery to be authentic and honest and to take that social mask off in order to connect with another human being. So much of what makes us who we are is smoothed away online. And what truly connects us is the wrinkles, not the smoothness. #Quote by Taylor Schilling
Bravery quotes by Mickey Mantle
#27. Bravery is a complicated thing to describe. You can't say it's three feet long and two feet wide and that it weighs four hundred pounds or that it's colored bright blue or that it sounds like a piano or that it smells like roses. It's a quality, not a thing. #Quote by Mickey Mantle
Bravery quotes by Orson Scott Card

"They're all dead."
"Only a coward would think of that," she said scornfully. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Bravery quotes by Cherie Carter-Scott
#29. Courage is finding the inner strength and bravery required when confronting danger, difficulty, or opposition. Courage is the energy current behind all great actions and the spark that ignites the initial baby steps of growth. It resides deep within each of us, ready to be accessed in those moments when you need to forge ahead or break through seemingly insurmountable barriers. It is the intangible force that propels you forward on your journey. #Quote by Cherie Carter-Scott

Bravery quotes by John Steinbeck
#32. The emotion of nonviolence was building in him until it became a prejudice like any other thought-stultifying prejudice. To inflict any hurt on anything for any purpose became inimical to him. He became obsessed with this emotion, for such it surely was, until it blotted out any possible thinking in its area. But never was there any hint of cowardice in Adam's army record. Indeed he was commended three times and then decorated for bravery. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Bravery quotes by Rachel Hartman
#33. He looked up at the reddening sky and said with a self-deprecating laugh, "You put me to shame, Seraphina. Your bravery always has."

He shook his head, staring off into the middle distance. "I know courage when I see it, and when I lack it. #Quote by Rachel Hartman

You shall henceforth lead you breathren into war whenever required by the gods. And you shall have a new ... um ... what kind of weapon would you like? A sword? An axe?"

"Hooray! #Quote by Rick Riordan
Bravery quotes by Rose Wynters
#39. He glanced at James before continuing. If you're going to survive this, the first rule you need to learn is never count on anyone but yourself. Never. People make mistakes, and the zombies are fast. They don't need to sleep or eat anything but us. Don't leave your protection in the hands of someone else. #Quote by Rose Wynters

Bravery quotes by Miles Franklin
#52. There is any amount of love and good in the world, but you must search for it. Being misunderstood is one of the trials we all must bear.

Bravery quotes by Kateryna Kei

"Be bold! be bold!" and everywhere

Better like Hector in the field to die,
Than like a perfumed Paris turn and fly, #Quote by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Bravery quotes by BinYamin Gulzar
#75. Am I brave enough? What is brave? Is bravery counted by the medals, proudly on display on a soldier's uniform or is it in laying down your life for something bigger than yourself. Is bravery in holding tight or letting go? For some, bravery is in standing against the world for your Principle …. For me bravery is living each day of my life for the sake of something greater than myself. #Quote by BinYamin Gulzar

Bravery quotes by Charles R. Swindoll
#78. We are fortified by exemplary lives, especially those who have earned the right to be respected by their character, sacrifice, patience, and ability to press on in spite of hardship, injustice, pain, and failure. Our heroes do not have to be perfect. They must, however be courageous, authentic, clear-minded, and determined to endure no matter the sacrifice or cost. We need heroes of integrity and consistency, admirable men and women we can admire, not because they exemplify a quick burst of bravery, but because they represent the stuff of greatness and stay at it to the end. #Quote by Charles R. Swindoll
Bravery quotes by Michael Moorcock
#79. She had always been beautiful in his eyes, and admirable, too. He had worshipped her, in some ways, for her courage in adversity, for her resistance to the ways of his own world. But that had been bravery under siege and now, it seemed, she single-handedly gave siege to the same society which, a few months before, had threatened to engulf and destroy her identity. There was a determination in her bearing, a lightness, an air of confidence, that proclaimed to everyone what he had always sensed in her - and he was proud that his world should see her as the woman he knew, in full command of herself and her situation. Yet there was, as well, a private knowledge, an intimate understanding between them, of the resources of character on which she drew to achieve that command. For the first time he became conscious of the depth of his love for her and, although he had always known that she had loved him, he became confident that her emotion was as strong as his own. Like her, he required no declaration; her bearing was declaration enough.
Together, they ascended. #Quote by Michael Moorcock
Bravery quotes by Tom Althouse
#80. Sometimes singed wings will fly with greater purpose. #Quote by Tom Althouse
Bravery quotes by Nick Lampson
#81. But this Veterans Day, I believe we should do more than sing the praises of the bravery and patriotism that our veterans have embodied in the past. We should take this opportunity to re-evaluate how we are treating our veterans in the present. #Quote by Nick Lampson
Bravery quotes by Nawal El Saadawi
#82. How is it possible to live? Life is so hard?'
'You must be harder than life, Firdaus. Life is very hard. The only people who really live are those who are harder than life itself.'
'But you are not hard, Sharifa, so how do you manage to live?'
'I am hard, terribly hard, Firdaus.'
'No, you are gentle and soft.'
'My skin is soft, but my heart is cruel, and my bite deadly.'
'Like snake?'
'Yes, exactly like a snake. Life is a snake. They are the same, Firdaus. If the snake realises you are not a snake, it will bite you. And if life knows you have no sting, it will devour you. #Quote by Nawal El Saadawi
Bravery quotes by Avina Celeste

Bravery quotes by Solange Nicole
#84. It takes more than balls to be a woman. It takes ovaries. #Quote by Solange Nicole
Bravery quotes by Tom Morello
#85. I am enormously proud to be an American. I would say that the things that our corporate-controlled government has done at best are shameful and at worst genocidal-but there's an incredible and a permanent culture of resistance in this country that I'm very proud to be a part of. It's not the tradition of slave-owningfounding fathers, it's the tradition of the Frederick Douglasses, the Underground Railroads, the Chief Josephs, the Joe Hills, and the Huey P. Newtons. There's so much to be proud of when you're American that's hidden from you. The incredible courage and bravery of the union organizers in the late 1800's and early 1900's-that's amazing. People of get tricked into going overseas and fighting Uncle Sam's Wall Street wars, but these are people who knew what they were fighting for here at home. I think that that's so much more courageous and brave. #Quote by Tom Morello
Bravery quotes by Garth Nix
#86. Bravery is about overcoming fear, not about not having it. #Quote by Garth Nix

#87. You have to be afraid for it to count as bravery. #Quote by Guy Gavriel Kay
Bravery quotes by J.K. Rowling
#88. Bravery doesn't forgive stupidity. Always think. Think what's possible. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Bravery quotes by George W. Bush
#89. Now, we have inscribed a new memory alongside those others. It's a memory of tragedy and shock, of loss and mourning. But not only of loss and mourning. It's also a memory of bravery and self-sacrifice, and the love that lays down its life for a friend-even a friend whose name it never knew. #Quote by George W. Bush
Bravery quotes by Derek Landy
#90. Bravery, after all, isn't the absence of fear. Bravery is the acknowledgement and the conquering of fear. #Quote by Derek Landy
Bravery quotes by Hillary Clinton
#91. No matter what you think about the Iraq war, there is one thing we can all agree on for the next days - we have to salute the courage and bravery of those who are risking their lives to vote and those brave Iraqi and American soldiers fighting to protect their right to vote. #Quote by Hillary Clinton
Bravery quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#92. The problem isn't that I think so highly of myself. It is just that you think so little of yourself. Live life BIG, BOLD and OUT LOUD! #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Bravery quotes by Andy Blowers, This I Believe II
#93. I believe the painful nights that close in on all of us in some form are the cocoons from which we might shed our weaknesses. I believe pain tells us something critical about ourselves and life: that developing strength and empathy and bravery is more essential than our personal comfort. And when I think of it like that, I'm more willing to accept suffering on its terms. #Quote by Andy Blowers, This I Believe II
Bravery quotes by Matthew Donnelly
#94. If you're brave enough to get through the darkness then you shall shine in the light. #Quote by Matthew Donnelly
Bravery quotes by Laura Campbell
#95. You're not a hero, despite what people say. You don't need to be a hero to save a life. You just need to be alive enough. A person who loves enough will have a reason to save a life. A person who is curious enough will find a way. A person who is brave enough will have things they would die for because they have discovered moments worth dying for long before their bravery was needed. Discover what matters, then be alive enough to fight for it. Be alive enough, and you'll change the world. - Eldridge, The Five Unnecessaries #Quote by Laura Campbell
Bravery quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#96. If you want your prayers answered, you get off your knees and do the one thing you're praying someone else will do for you. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Bravery quotes by Alfred Lansing
#97. The whole undertaking was criticized in some circles as being too "audacious." And perhaps it was. But if it hadn't been audacious, it wouldn't have been to Shackleton's liking. He was, above all, an explorer in the classic mold - utterly self-reliant, romantic, and just a little swashbuckling. #Quote by Alfred Lansing
Bravery quotes by Babur
#98. Like us many have spoken over this spring, but they were gone in the twinkling of an eye.
We conquered the world with bravery and might, but we did not take it with us to the grave. #Quote by Babur
Bravery quotes by Ysabella Brave
#99. You don't get very far in life without having to be brave an awful lot. Because we all have our frightening moments and difficult trials and we don't have much of a choice but to get through 'em, and it takes a lot of bravery to do that. The most important thing about bravery is this - It's not about not being scared - it's about being scared and doing it anyway - that's bravery. #Quote by Ysabella Brave
Bravery quotes by Ella Maillart
#100. You can feel as brave as Columbus starting for the unknown the first time you enter a Chinese lane full of boys laughing at you, or when you risk climbing down in a Tibetan pub for a meal of rotten meat. #Quote by Ella Maillart
Bravery quotes by Jennifer Donnelly
#101. Bravery is feeling fear but doing the thing anyway. #Quote by Jennifer Donnelly
Bravery quotes by Nenia Campbell
#102. Keep calm. You have the forest in your blood. #Quote by Nenia Campbell
Bravery quotes by Seth Godin
#103. Art is frightening. Art isn't pretty. Art isn't painting. Art isn't something you hang on the wall. Art is what we do when we're truly alive. An artist is someone who uses bravery, insight, creativity, and boldness to challenge the status quo. And an artist takes it (all of it, the work, the process, the feedback from those we seek to connect with) personally. #Quote by Seth Godin
Bravery quotes by Jenny Diski
#104. But nothing will persuade me that the mere fact of being in a place is enough in itself to justify the effort of getting out of bed to become a tourist, or even a traveller. I don't have the slightest wish to be intrepid. I don't want to prove myself to myself or anyone else. I don't care if no one thinks me brave or hardy. I have no concern at all that I did not have whatever it is I should have had to take a dive out of a plane or off a building. None of that matters to me in the least. #Quote by Jenny Diski
Bravery quotes by Leslie Feinberg
#105. Everybody's scared, but if you don't let your fears stop you, that's bravery! #Quote by Leslie Feinberg
Bravery quotes by Christopher Paolini
#106. Without fear there cannot be courage. #Quote by Christopher Paolini
Bravery quotes by Clarence Thomas
#107. In my humble opinion, those who come to engage in debates of consequence, and who challenge accepted wisdom, should expect to be treated badly. Nonetheless, they must stand undaunted. That is required. And that should be expected. For it is bravery that is required to secure freedom. #Quote by Clarence Thomas
Bravery quotes by Samuel Johnson
#108. [C]ourage is reckoned the greatest of all virtues; because, unless a man has that virtue, he has no security for preserving any other. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Bravery quotes by Cleo Wade
#109. List of everyday acts of bravery:
1. Being a woman
2. Giving a damn #Quote by Cleo Wade
Bravery quotes by Sallust
#110. Necessity makes even the timid brave. #Quote by Sallust
Bravery quotes by Plato
#111. And I think that our braver and better youth, besides their other honours and rewards, might have greater facilities of intercourse with women given them; their bravery will be a reason, and such fathers ought to have as many sons as possible. True. And the proper officers, whether male or female or both, for offices are to be held by women as well as by men - Yes - The proper officers will take the offspring of the good parents to the pen or fold, and there they will deposit them with certain nurses who dwell in a separate quarter; but the offspring of the inferior, or of the better when they chance to be deformed, will be put away in some mysterious, unknown place, as they should be. Yes, he said, that must be done if the breed of the guardians is to be kept pure. They #Quote by Plato
Bravery quotes by Jason Medina
#112. After everything they had been through the past few days and all the selfless acts of bravery, it felt really nice to do something selfish. #Quote by Jason Medina
Bravery quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#113. Almost everything about a human creature is ridiculous, except its ability to suffer bravely and die gallantly for whatever it loves and believes in. The validity of that belief, the appropriateness of that love, is irrelevant; it is the bravery and the gallantry that count. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Bravery quotes by Charlotte Sophia Kasl
#114. The spiritual warrior hides from nothing. We jump into the fire, we dive into the ocean. We become the sea. #Quote by Charlotte Sophia Kasl
Bravery quotes by Carla H. Krueger
#115. Bravery isn't brandishing a sword. It's standing your moral ground and letting others try their best to take you down. #Quote by Carla H. Krueger

Bravery quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#121. O sancta simplicitas! What strange simplification and falsification mankind lives on! One can never cease to marvel once one has acquired eyes for this marvel! How we have made everything around us bright and free and easy and simple! How we have known how to bestow on our senses a passport to everything superficial, on our thoughts a divine desire for wanton gambling and false conclusions! - how we have from the very beginning understood how to retain our ignorance so as to enjoy an almost inconceivable freedom, frivolity, impetuosity, bravery, cheerfulness of life, so as to enjoy life! #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Bravery quotes by Jess Keating
#122. But you know what I've learned about bravery? It's not something you just have. It's something you choose. And the more you choose it, the more it grows. #Quote by Jess Keating
Bravery quotes by Brenda Ueland
#123. Yes, I hate orthodox criticism. I don't mean great criticism, like that of Matthew Arnold and others, but the usual small niggling, fussy-mussy criticism, which thinks it can improve people by telling them where they are wrong, and results only in putting them in straitjackets of hesitancy and self-consciousness, and weazening all vision and bravery.
... I hate it because of all the potentially shining, gentle, gifted people of all ages, that it snuffs out every year. It is a murderer of talent. And because the most modest and sensitive people are the most talented, having the most imagination and sympathy, these are the very first ones to get killed off. It is the brutal egotists that survive. #Quote by Brenda Ueland
Bravery quotes by Tacitus
#124. The brave and bold persist even against fortune; the timid and cowardly rush to despair though fear alone. #Quote by Tacitus
Bravery quotes by Susan Wingate
#125. Bravery in a fictional character is one thing
it's easy to imagine and easy to write. Bravery in real life offers many challenges. We want to believe we will be brave if a situation requires us to. But if we over-think it, we will certainly fail. One simply needs to act toward the best possible result rather than to ponder all of the possibilities. #Quote by Susan Wingate
Bravery quotes by Kayla Olson
#126. Survival is born as much from fear as it is from bravery. #Quote by Kayla Olson
Bravery quotes by Megan Abbott
#127. The drone in my ear, it's like the tornado drill in elementary school, the hand-cranked siren that rang mercilessly, all of us hunched over on ourselves, facing the basement walls, heads tucked into our chests. Beth and me wedged tight, jeaned legs pressed against each other. The sounds of our own breathing. Before we all stopped believing a tornado, or anything, could touch us, ever #Quote by Megan Abbott
Bravery quotes by Marcus Garvey
#128. You must not mistake lip-service and noise for bravery and service. #Quote by Marcus Garvey
Bravery quotes by C.A.A. Savastano
#129. Heroes do not speak of their bravery, they let their deeds speak for them. #Quote by C.A.A. Savastano
Bravery quotes by Gail Sheehy
#130. Men are not given awards and promotions for bravery in intimacy. #Quote by Gail Sheehy
Bravery quotes by Saddam Hussein
#131. I like to call a spade a spade in politics and in everything else.
That's why the zionists and the americans ...
The top officials hate Saddam Hussein.
The White House is lying once again. He's a liar.
He's the world's number one liar.
He said there were chemical weapons in Iraq, and that Iraq is connected with terrorism.
Later he declared: 'We didn't find any of this in Iraq.'
What I want to say is that he also declared that what Saddam Hussein says is not true ...
This is defamation of your president of thirty five years. #Quote by Saddam Hussein
Bravery quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#132. Be the ocean of conscience in which others can bathe. Be the sacred river of service, that takes away selfishness from the society. Be the mountain of bravery that absorbs weakness from the heart of people. And you must do all this as a humble servant as well as a pride-less leader of the people. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Bravery quotes by Brenda Ueland

Bravery quotes by Natalie C. Parker
#134. In all the tales of adventure Clara had ever heard, it was never young girls, who were daring. It was always boys running off to rescue a friend or fetch much-needed medicine or stumble into good fortune. Clara knew girls would be daring if given half the chance. And she intended to take that chance, right from under the pale nose of Mr. Earwood. #Quote by Natalie C. Parker
Bravery quotes by John Boehner
#135. Before the trip began we mapped out three primary goals: 1) to see and meet with our American troops, and thank them for their bravery and sacrifice; 2) to assess the security situation in Iraq; and 3) to give our support to Iraq's national unity government. #Quote by John Boehner
Bravery quotes by Chapman Cohen
#136. [Hypatia Bradlaugh Bonner belonged to] that small army of brave people who made it their duty, without thought of themselves or hope or expectation of reward, to strive for unpopular causes.
[Chapman Cohen on the death of noted freethinker and peace advocate Hypatia Bradlaugh Bonner] #Quote by Chapman Cohen
Bravery quotes by John Milton
#137. But who is this, what thing of sea or land,- Female of sex it seems,- That so bedeck'd, ornate, and gay, Comes this way sailing Like a stately ship Of Tarsus, bound for th' isles Of Javan or Gadire, With all her bravery on, and tackle trim, Sails fill'd, and streamers waving, Courted by all the winds that hold them play, An amber scent of odorous perfume Her harbinger? #Quote by John Milton
Bravery quotes by Sakyong Mipham
#138. In a speedy and aggressive culture, we need different principles to live by-bravery and insight. The first moment of bravery is building trust in the mind, which we do in meditation. When we know how to create peace in our own mind, we can transform the world. #Quote by Sakyong Mipham
Bravery quotes by Jaime Manrique
#139. I thought of Bobby, of the last look he had given me, and at that moment I understood one of the differences between man and cat: man knows he's going to die, so he can get ready and be willing, even eager, to go. A cat knows the end is near, but that's all. He can't accept death: he can't trust in it; cats are perhaps too metaphysical an entity to need to believe in the idea of a beyond; a cat is his own god and man his creation. #Quote by Jaime Manrique
Bravery quotes by Nelson Mandela
#140. I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. #Quote by Nelson Mandela
Bravery quotes by John F. Kennedy
#141. For without belittling the courage with which men have died, we should not forget those acts of courage with which men have lived. #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Bravery quotes by Aristotle.
#142. Bravery is a mean state concerned with things that inspire confidence and with things fearful ... and leading us to choose danger and to face it, either because to do so is noble, or because not to do so is base. But to court death as an escape from poverty, or from love, or from some grievous pain, is no proof of bravery, but rather of cowardice. #Quote by Aristotle.
Bravery quotes by John Dryden
#143. The brave man seeks not popular applause, Nor, overpower'd with arms, deserts his cause; Unsham'd, though foil'd, he does the best he can, Force is of brutes, but honor is of man. #Quote by John Dryden
Bravery quotes by Mike Norton
#144. So long as we are brave enough to accept the consequences of our actions, no one can take away our freedom of choice. #Quote by Mike Norton
Bravery quotes by Bernhard Schlink
#145. Bravery is good when the cause is good. #Quote by Bernhard Schlink
Bravery quotes by Kristin Hannah
#146. It is nearly impossible.'
'Nearly impossible and impossible are not the same thing. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Bravery quotes by Sara Rose Snelling
#147. I like to play outside of the box they have made for me. I was born this way. That's how my brain works. Create from scratch and grow an extraordinary solution to an inimitable opportunity- enthusiastically answer a question that wasn't asked yet. A consummate, authentic existence in a vacuum. No apologies. #Quote by Sara Rose Snelling
Bravery quotes by Morihei Ueshiba
#148. The Art of Peace is based on four Great Virtues: Bravery, Wisdom, Love, and Friendship, symbolized by Fire, Heaven, Earth, and Water. #Quote by Morihei Ueshiba
Bravery quotes by Emily Lloyd-Jones
#149. Standing on the edge of that darkness, she felt the stirrings of reckless want. A wild sort of bravery beat within her, taking up the hollow space in her chest where a heart should have resided. #Quote by Emily Lloyd-Jones
Bravery quotes by John Buford
#150. The zeal, bravery, and good behavior of the officers and men on the night of June 30, and during July 1, was commendable in the extreme. #Quote by John Buford
Bravery quotes by M.F. Moonzajer

Bravery quotes by Johanna Sinisalo
#152. Pretend that you're a clever shepherd girl, and you're just dressed up in pretty clothes, and you're trying to make everybody believe that you're a spoiled, empty-headed little princess. So no one guesses that under your clothes you're a brave shepherd girl who climbs trees and chases away wolves with your staff. #Quote by Johanna Sinisalo
Bravery quotes by Mark Pryor
#153. Life does not stand still for families and local communities when our brave men and women are deployed, but we can make their time apart more bearable by recognizing their sacrifice and fulfilling our commitments to them. #Quote by Mark Pryor
Bravery quotes by Dani Alexander
#154. I'm not gay." That wasn't what I meant to say.
"Congratulations. Would you like a medal?" Bunny Slippers asked.
"I already have a medal. For bravery, not for being gay. I think you made me gay."
"I made you gay?" He set down the napkin he was holding. "Is that better or worse than the person who made you stupid? #Quote by Dani Alexander
Bravery quotes by Pierce Brown
#155. The human spirit tries to break free again and again, not in hate like the Dark Revolt. But for love. They don't mimic each other. They aren't inspired by others who come before them. Each is willing to take the leap, thinking they are the first. That's bravery. And that means it's a part of who we are as people. #Quote by Pierce Brown
Bravery quotes by Clarence Darrow
#156. The ability and inclination to use physical strength is no indication of bravery or tenacity to life. The greatest cowards are often the greatest bullies. Nothing is cheaper and more common than physical bravery. #Quote by Clarence Darrow
Bravery quotes by Juvenal
#157. Dare to do something worthy of transportation and a prison, if you mean to be anybody. #Quote by Juvenal
Bravery quotes by Gerald Hausman
#158. Genuine bravery occurs when you least expect it, and when, in fact, you're quite oblivious of it. Sometimes heroism happens when you press on; other times when you let go. Once in a while, it happens when you do a little dance all your own. #Quote by Gerald Hausman
Bravery quotes by Terence
#159. Fortune helps the brave. #Quote by Terence
Bravery quotes by Madeleine L'Engle
#160. If we are to be aware of life while we are living it, we must have the courage to relinquish our hard-earned control of ourselves. #Quote by Madeleine L'Engle
Bravery quotes by Cari Beauchamp
#161. The vastness, the immensity, the awfulness of what I saw as I kept moving along with the front line engagements was utterly beyond my powers of comprehension, let alone my ability to describe or scenarioize [sic]. . . . I could not write of the war, of the agonies, of the bravery of our boys or the things they endured - I simply couldn't do it." Still, she continually worked on ways to shape their film into a cohesive story and whenever the truck wasn't too bumpy or the candle still had a flame, she took her notes and occasionally turned to writing comedy vignettes "for relief from the strain. #Quote by Cari Beauchamp

Bravery quotes by Steven Cuoco
#165. The meaning of bravery is more than the act of being strong, it is also about letting go of what you cannot control and trusting the unknown. #Quote by Steven Cuoco

Bravery quotes by Doutor Luis Alexandre Ribeiro Branco

Bravery quotes by Alyson Noel
#168. I've recently discovered what I suspected all along – cynicism is overrated and overvalued. It's the shield people hide behind in the mistake belief that it makes them appear cool, strong and impenetrable. But true bravery isn't about following the crowd or pretending not to care – it's about daring to trust in yourself and staying true to your heart in the face of dissent. True courage is going out on a limb for the people you love because it's the right thing to do. #Quote by Alyson Noel
Bravery quotes by Harry Truman
#169. Brave men don't belong to any one country. I respect bravery wherever I see it. #Quote by Harry Truman

Bravery quotes by Jill Williamson
#172. Only when life is quiet, Empress," Oli said. "When the battle comes our way or we see a need, we will pick up our swords and fight beside the bravest of men, even knowing we may fall. But once all is well again... that's when the darkness comes. Then we sit in silence and struggle to grasp our peace the best we can. #Quote by Jill Williamson
Bravery quotes by Veronica Roth
#173. What is wrong with you?' I shake my head. 'Pull it together.'
And that's what it feels like: pulling the different parts of me up and in like a shoelace. I feel suffocated, but at least I feel strong. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Bravery quotes by Andrew Jackson
#174. One man with courage makes a majority. #Quote by Andrew Jackson
Bravery quotes by Chogyam Trungpa

Bravery quotes by Stephen Harper
#176. Too often in the past, our Armed Forces have returned to Canada from their trials with little fanfare. Not so today.

Bravery quotes by Bob Costas

Bravery quotes by Aristotle

Bravery quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#182. A timid act may be more bold
than one would first assume,
for whispering truth is braver
than to silently resume. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Bravery quotes by Anneli Rufus
#183. And as experienced as I am, it still summons an act of bravery from me, and I like that. I like the idea of setting an example - proving that it is acceptable to be alone in a public place where everyone else is in groups, and to just be sitting there eating, not having to be engrossed in anything else. #Quote by Anneli Rufus
Bravery quotes by Johnny Rich
#184. Doing nothing was as honourable as any available course of action. Think of Hamlet, think of Job, think of Jesus before Pilate. #Quote by Johnny Rich
Bravery quotes by Frank Herbert
#185. Most civilisation is based on cowardice. It's so easy to civilize by teaching cowardice. You water down the standards which would lead to bravery. You restrain the will. You regulate the appetites. You fence in the horizons. You make a law for every movement. You deny the existence of chaos. You teach even the children to breathe slowly. You tame. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Bravery quotes by Sarah Bessey
#186. I pray for bravery and guts, for honesty and discernment. I know you have a lot to lose - we all do when we lay down our certainties and our black-and-white thinking. #Quote by Sarah Bessey

Bravery quotes by M.E. Thomas
#189. One nurse thought I was "brave." I think she was talking about my steely-eyed, grin-and-bear-it kind of attitude. There were no tears, no complaints from me - a total lack of affect. In a victim, it is courage and thus admirable; in a predator, it is a lack of humanity and instills fear. #Quote by M.E. Thomas
Bravery quotes by Seth
#190. Giving your team cover for their cowardice is foolish. Give them a platform for bravery instead. #Quote by Seth
Bravery quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#191. There are two things we should always be 1. raw and 2. ready. When you are raw, you are always ready and when you are ready you usually realize that you are raw. Waiting for perfection is not an answer, one cannot say "I will be ready when I am perfect" because then you will never be ready, rather one must say "I am raw and I am ready just like this right now, how and who I am. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Bravery quotes by Brian McClellan

Bravery quotes by Lance Armstrong
#194. It's a fact that children with cancer have higher cure rates than adults with cancer, and I wonder if the reason is their natural, unthinking bravery ... Adults know too much about failure; they're more cynical and resigned and fearful. #Quote by Lance Armstrong
Bravery quotes by Sanhita Baruah
#195. There was this constant urge in me to tear my insides apart,
I didn't know why. By the time I made my mind that it was impossible for me
to do, there alighted the fear, haunting me with the words that rang
constantly in my head, "You're not brave enough".
I didn't feel devastated, I felt the urge to be devastated. #Quote by Sanhita Baruah
Bravery quotes by Louis L'Amour
#196. When I was a small boy I often went to the woods to lie on the grass in the shade. Somehow I had come to believe the earth could give me wisdom, but it did not. Yet I learned a little about animals and learned it is not always brave to make a stand. It is often foolish. There is a time for courage and a time for flight. #Quote by Louis L'Amour
Bravery quotes by Lawrence Hill
#197. I had chosen freedom, with all its insecurities, and nothing in the world would make me turn away from it. #Quote by Lawrence Hill
Bravery quotes by Stephenie Meyer
