Valor quotes by Winston Churchill
#1. Death and sorrow will be the companions of our journey; hardship our garment; constancy and valor our only shield. We must be united, we must be undaunted, we must be inflexible. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Valor quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#2. Prudence, patience, labor, valor; these are the stars that rule the career of mortals. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Valor quotes by Chris Hayes
#3. It's very difficult to talk about the war dead and the fallen without invoking valor, without invoking the words 'heroes.' I feel ... uncomfortable about the word hero because it seems to me that it is so rhetorically proximate to justifications for more war. #Quote by Chris Hayes
Valor quotes by Monika Zands
#4. It is in the darkest hour, when we are faced with our deepest most wrenching fears, that we are given the greatest strength. The choice is whether we succumb to the fear or rise with courage to face our truth and shine our brilliance as our sword of valor. #Quote by Monika Zands
Valor quotes by Edmond Rostand
Thy name is in my heart as in a sheep-bell,
And as I ever tremble, thinking of thee,
Ever the bell shakes, ever thy name ringeth!
All things of thine I mind, for I love all things;
I know that last year on the twelfth of May-month,
To walk abroad, one day you changed your hair-plaits!
I am so used to take your hair for daylight
That,--like as when the eye stares on the sun's disk,
One sees long after a red blot on all things--
So, when I quit thy beams, my dazzled vision
Sees upon all things a blonde stain imprinted.

ROXANE (agitated):
Why, this is love indeed!. . .

Ay, true, the feeling
Which fills me, terrible and jealous, truly
Love,--which is ever sad amid its transports!
Love,--and yet, strangely, not a selfish passion!
I for your joy would gladly lay mine own down,
--E'en though you never were to know it,--never!
--If but at times I might--far off and lonely,--
Hear some gay echo of the joy I bought you!
Each glance of thine awakes in me a virtue,--
A novel, unknown valor. Dost begin, sweet,
To understand? So late, dost understand me?
Feel'st thou my soul, here, through the darkness mounting?
Too fair the night! Too fair, too fair the moment!
That I should speak thus, and that you should hearken!
Too fair! In moments when my hopes rose proudest,
I never hoped such guerdon. Naught is left me
#Quote by Edmond Rostand
Valor quotes by Sandra Brown
#6. He made a costly error in judgement and sent an entire regiment into a virtual slaughterhouse. It happens frequently. Officers risk their troops' lives for the sake of a promotion. Not my father. He valued the life of every man under his command, from his officers to the humblest fresh recruit. When he realized what had happened, he was devastated. He couldn't ever forget that his error had cost the lives of so many men, created so many widows and orphans..."
"But, Lyon, measured against his valor, one mistake is forgivable."
"To us, yes. Not to him. He was sickened that the battle was hailed as one of the turning points of the war. He was decorated for it. It was considered a great victory, but it defeated him as a soldier, as a man. When he came home and was hailed a hero, he couldn't stand the conflict within himself. He didn't feel like a hero. He felt like a traitor."
"That can't be!"
"Not a traitor to his country, but to the men who had trusted his judgement and leadership. It was a conflict he never could reconcile, so he retired from the Army and came here and shut out the world and all reminders of the lie he was living."
They were quiet for a moment before she said,"No one would have thrown stones at him, Lyon. he was a respected man, a hero, a leader at a time in history when America needed heroes and leaders. It was a battleground that spread out for miles. Admist all the chaos he may have thought he made a mistake when he actually didn't. #Quote by Sandra Brown
Valor quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#7. If one doubts whether Grecian valor and patriotism are not a fiction of the poets, he may go to Athens and see still upon the walls of the temple of Minerva the circular marks made by the shields taken from the enemy in the Persian war, which were suspended there. We have not far to seek for living and unquestionable evidence. The very dust takes shape and confirms some story which we had read. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Valor quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#8. I am less affected by their heroism who stood up for half an hour in the front line at Buena Vista, than by the steady and cheerful valor of the men who inhabit the snow-plow for their winter quarters; who have not merely the three-o'-clock-in-the-morning courage, which Bonaparte thought was the rarest, but whose courage does not go to rest so early, who go to sleep only when the storm sleeps or the sinews of their iron steed are frozen. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Valor quotes by Sarah Bessey
#9. For instance, some evangelicals have turned Proverbs 31 into a woman's job description instead of what it actually is: the blessing and affirmation of valor for the lives of women, memorized by Jewish husbands for the purpose of honoring their wives at the family table. It is meant as a celebration for the everyday moments of valor for everyday women, not as an impossible exhausting standard. #Quote by Sarah Bessey
Valor quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#10. Ancient politicians talked incessantly about morality and virtue; our politicians talk only about business and money. One will tell you that in a particular country a man is worth the sum he could be sold for in Algiers; another, by following this calculation, will find countries where a man is worth nothing, and others where he is worth less than nothing. They assess men like herds of livestock. According to them, a man has no value to the State apart from what he consumes in it. Thus one Sybarite would have been worth at least thirty Lacedaemonians. Would someone therefore hazard a guess which of these two republics, Sparta or Sybaris, was overthrown by a handful of peasants and which one made Asia tremble? #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Valor quotes by Chase E.F.  Bolling
#11. Necessity and valor formed the Vanguard. It was born from the courage of all who took up arms against tyranny and all those who decided to stand by our standard. When things began to fall apart, I just used the tools my Creator gave me to improve the lives of my family and the people that choose to follow me. Why allow people to live in fear, poverty, and bondage when I had the tools will and desire to change it? I didn't want to be that servant who buried his talents. My goal is to build a nation that is free, and just, with prosperous and happy people. #Quote by Chase E.F. Bolling
Valor quotes by Walter Lord
#12. Even against the greatest of odds, there is something in the human spirit - a magic blend of skill, faith, and valor - that can lift men from certain defeat to incredible victory. #Quote by Walter Lord
Valor quotes by Taylor Longford
#13. MacKenzie started to look frightened and Valor looked like he was going to kill somebody if they didn't stop scaring his girlfriend. At the same time, Victor looked like he was ready to step in and take control of the situation. And if these suits decided to pull out some guns, I could see where they might end up as a set of life-sized garden gnomes. #Quote by Taylor Longford
Valor quotes by Douglas Adams
#14. Zaphod did not want to tangle with them and, deciding that just as discretion is the better part of valor, so was cowardice is the better part of discretion, he valiantly hid himself in a closet. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Valor quotes by David Eddings
#15. A great blow it was,' he said in expensive tones, 'worthy of the mightiest warrior and truly struck upon the nose of the foe. The bright blood flew, and the enemy was dismayed and overcame. Like a hero, Garion stood over the vanquished, and, like a true hero, did not boast nor taunt his fallen opponent, but offered instead advice for quelling that crimson blood. with simple dignity then, he quit the field, but the bright-eyed maid would not let him depart unrewarded for his valor. hastily, she pursued him and fondly clasped her snowy arms about his neck. And there she lovingly bestowed that single kiss that is the true hero's greatest reward. Her eyes flamed with admiration, and her chaste bosom heaved with newly wakened passion. But modest Garion innocently departed and tarried not to claim those other sweet rewards the gentle maid's fond demeanor so clearly offered. And thus the adventure ended with our hero tasting victory but tenderly declining victory's true compensation. #Quote by David Eddings
Valor quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#16. That deliverance is of no avail which does not depend upon yourself; those only are reliable, certain, and durable that depend upon yourself and your valor. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Valor quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#17. It may be observed, that provinces amid the vicissitudes to which they are subject, pass from order into confusion, and afterward recur to a state of order again; for the nature of mundane affairs not allowing them to continue in an even course, when they have arrived at their greatest perfection, they soon begin to decline. In the same manner, having been reduced by disorder, and sunk to their utmost state of depression, unable to descend lower, they, of necessity, reascend; and thus from good they gradually decline to evil, and from evil again return to good. The reason is, that valor produces peace; peace, repose; repose, disorder; disorder, ruin; so from disorder order springs; from order virtue, and from this, glory and good fortune. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Valor quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#18. From beyond the shining corrugations of the ocean I salute here brave Bretwit! Let there appear for a moment his hand and mine firmly clasping each other across the water over the golden wake of an emblematic sun. Let no insurance firm or airline use this insigne on the glossy page of a magazine as an ad badge under the picture of a retired businessman stupefied and honored by the sight of the technicolored snack the air hostess offers him with everything else she can give; rather, let this lofty handshake be regarded in our cynical age of frenzied heterosexualism as a last, but lasting, symbol of valor and self-abnegation. #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Valor quotes by Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim
#19. The French are completely without scruples, energy or valor - the Great War castrated them and left them diminished, whiney, mistaking bickering for debate and shrillness for eloquence, they are a nation in such effete decline that Shickelgrubber, when he finally attacks them, might be dancing with the keys to Paris in his hand after a week or two of puny skirmishing. #Quote by Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim
Valor quotes by J. Valor
#20. Time no longer mattered. He knew he would have plenty of it at his disposal. The sight of the star filled him with indescribable longing. #Quote by J. Valor
Valor quotes by Paullina Simons
#21. Tatiana was order. She was finite matter in infinite space. Tatiana was the standard-bearer for the flag of grace and valor that she carried forward with Bounty and perfection in herself, the flag Alexander had followed sixteen hundred kilometers east to the Kama River, to the Ural Mountains, to Lazarevo. #Quote by Paullina Simons

Valor quotes by Ambrose Bierce
#23. General," said the commander of the delinquent brigade, "I am persuaded that any further display of valor by my troops will bring them into collision with the enemy. #Quote by Ambrose Bierce
Valor quotes by Anna Sewell
#24. I said, 'I have heard people talk about war as if it was a very fine thing.'
Ah!' said [Captain], 'I should think they never saw it. No doubt it is very fine when there is no enemy, when it is just exercise and parade, and sham-fight. Yes, it is very fine then; but when thousands of good brave men and horses are killed, or crippled for life, it has a very different look.'
Do you know what they fought about?' said I.
No,' he said, 'that is more than a horse can understand, but the enemy must have been awfully wicked people, if it was right to go all that way over the sea on purpose to kill them. #Quote by Anna Sewell
Valor quotes by Benjamin Harrison
#25. I have never been able to think of the day as one of mourning; I have never quite been able to feel that half-masted flags were appropriate on Decoration Day. I have rather felt that the flag should be at the peak, because those whose dying we commemorate rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it. We honor them in a joyous, thankful, triumphant commemoration of what they did. #Quote by Benjamin Harrison
Valor quotes by Anonymous
#26. To bear pain without letting it spoil your happiness is true valor. #Quote by Anonymous
Valor quotes by Ronald Reagan
#27. Throughout America today, we honor the dead of our wars. We recall their valor and their sacrifices. We remember they gave their lives so that others might live. #Quote by Ronald Reagan
Valor quotes by J. Valor
#28. This trespass had not come without a price. Living un-lives, material comforts and luxuries became superfluous, connection to the outside world undesirable, and power their only sustenance. But they had paid gladly, considering this "humanity" a small price for the power they now wielded; power that would sustain them far beyond the lives of mere humans and perhaps, in time, even grant them immortality. #Quote by J. Valor
Valor quotes by Walter Scott
#29. Fear to do base unworthy things is valour; If they be done to us, to suffer them Is valour too. #Quote by Walter Scott
Valor quotes by Dorothy Parker
#30. (Scottish Terriers) have all the compactness of a small dog and all the valor of a big one. And they are so exceedingly sturdy that it is proverbial that the only thing fatal to them is being run over by an automobile - in which case the car itself knows it has been in a fight. #Quote by Dorothy Parker
Valor quotes by Veronica Roth
#31. He put his hands on hers. The shadows looked like smoke, in the air, but they pulled back into Cyra's body like dozens of strings yanked at once.
Cyra's odd smile was gone, and she was staring at their joined hands.
"What will happen when you let go?" she said quietly.
"You'll be just fine," he said. "You'll learn to control it. You can do that now, remember?"
She let out an airy laugh.
"I can hang on as long as you like," he said.
Her eyes hardened. When she spoke, it was with gritted teeth. "Let go."
Akos couldn't help but think back to something he'd read in one of the books Cyra had put in his room on the sojourn ship. He'd had to read it through a translator, because it was written in Shotet, and it had been called Tenets of Shotet Culture and Belief.
It said: The most marked characteristic of the Shotet people is directly translated as "armored," but outsiders might call it "mettle." It refers not to courageous acts in difficult situations--though the Shotet certainly hold valor in high regard--but to an inherent quality that cannot be learned or imitated; it is in the blood as surely as their revelatory language. Mettle is bearing up again and again under assaults. It is perseverance, acceptance of risk, and the unwillingness to surrender.
That paragraph had never made more sense to him than it did right now. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Valor quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#32. Perfect Valor is to do, without a witness, all that we could do before the whole world. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Valor quotes by Walter Bagehot
#33. Conquest is the missionary of valor, and the hard impact of military virtues beats meanness out of the world. #Quote by Walter Bagehot
Valor quotes by Livy
#34. Valor is the soldier's adornment. #Quote by Livy
Valor quotes by Dave Eggers
#35. He tried to calm his thoughts, but everything came back to what he'd almost done. Because he hadn't done anything, for years or ever, he had almost done this. Because he had no stories of valor, he had almost done this. Because the efforts he'd made towards creating something like a legacy had failed, he had almost done this. #Quote by Dave Eggers
Valor quotes by Fredrick Maurice
#36. There are times and occasions in war when the valor of ignorance has it's advantages #Quote by Fredrick Maurice
Valor quotes by K.M. Shea
#37. Mammoth was more controlled than Valor and made a point to keep his attention hinged on Ivo - as if disgusted by Valor's eagerness. "Mammoth, greet the lady properly," Ivo said. To Cinderella's surprise and delight, Mammoth slid forward on his front paws, bowing to her. #Quote by K.M. Shea
Valor quotes by Sherry Thomas
#38. Before you lie courage, perseverance, kindness, friendship, and love. Before you lie men and women who could have chosen otherwise, who could have inured themselves to the injustices of the world, rather than giving their lives to change it. Tonight we honor them. Tonight we also honor all who have gone before and paved the way, the ones we remember and the ones we have forgotten.
But nothing is lost in Eternity. A moment of grace resonates forever, as does an act of valor. So honor the dead- and live in grace and valor. #Quote by Sherry Thomas
Valor quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#39. Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Valor quotes by Sergei Lukyanenko
#40. To kill the enemy is valorous. To condemn him to torment is infamous. To condemn him to eternal torment is eternal infamy. #Quote by Sergei Lukyanenko
Valor quotes by Joe Abercrombie
#41. I've been trying to get through this damn book again". Ardee slapped at heavy volume lying open, face down, on a chair.
"The Fall of the Master Maker", muttered Glokta. "That rubbish? All magic and valor, no ? I couldn't get through the first one".
"I sympathize. I'm onto the third and it doesn't get any easier. Too many damn wizards. I get them mixed up one with another. It's all battles and endless bloody journeys, here to there and back again. If so much as glimpse another map I swear I kill myself #Quote by Joe Abercrombie
Valor quotes by Horace
#42. All else-valor, a good name, glory, everything in heaven and earth-is secondary to the charm of riches. #Quote by Horace
Valor quotes by Chester W. Nimitz
#43. Among the men who fought on Iwo Jima, uncommon valor was a common virtue. #Quote by Chester W. Nimitz
Valor quotes by William Shakespeare
#44. Discretion is the better part of valor. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Valor quotes by William H. Seward
#45. It is true, indeed, that the national domain is ours. It is true it was acquired by the valor and with the wealth of the whole nation. But we hold, nevertheless, no arbitrary power over it. #Quote by William H. Seward
Valor quotes by Joseph Hopkinson
#46. Enjoy the peace your valor won. Let independence be our boast, Ever mindful what it cost; Ever grateful for the prize, Let its altar reach the skies! #Quote by Joseph Hopkinson
Valor quotes by Pierce Brown
#47. Patience is the better part of valor. And obedience the better part of humanity. Listen to your elders. #Quote by Pierce Brown
Valor quotes by Rachel Held Evans
#48. A woman only loses herself when she stops looking, that no role is too confining or too grand for a woman of valor. #Quote by Rachel Held Evans
Valor quotes by Janet Morris

Valor quotes by George R R Martin
#50. In the end a gentle heart may be worth more than pride or valor. #Quote by George R R Martin
Valor quotes by Jocelyn Murray

Valor quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#52. The gospel alone liberates you to live a life of scandalous generosity, unrestrained sacrifice, uncommon valor, and unbounded courage. #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian
Valor quotes by Tim O'Brien
#53. They did not submit to the obvious alternative, which was simply to close the eyes and fall. So easy, really. Go limp and tumble to the ground and let the muscles unwind and not speak and not budge until your buddies picked you up and lifted you into the chopper that would roar and dip its nose and carry you off to the world. A mere matter of falling, yet no one ever fell. It was not courage, exactly; the object was not valor. Rather, they were too frightened to be cowards. #Quote by Tim O'Brien
Valor quotes by Morihei Ueshiba
#54. The Way of a Warrior is based on humanity, love, and sincerity; the heart of martial valor is true bravery, wisdom, love, and friendship. Emphasis on the physical aspects of warriorship is futile, for the power of the body is always limited. #Quote by Morihei Ueshiba
Valor quotes by Alex Honnold
#55. I've done routes where I've climbed 200 feet off the ground and just been, like, 'What am I doing?' I then just climbed back down and went home. Discretion is the better part of valor. Some days are just not your day. That's the big thing with free soloing: when to call it. #Quote by Alex Honnold
Valor quotes by Janet Morris
#56. Then what difference does human striving make: mortal struggle, valor, pain? If you live, then live for the test of spirit, for the celebration of the heart. Live to fight on other days. Lose your beloveds one by one. And remember. Exalt the kiss of friend and horse and wind and sun, which venality cannot cheapen nor stupidity belittle. #Quote by Janet Morris
Valor quotes by Robin Hobb
#57. Other men might dream of high honors or riches or deeds of valor sung by minstrels. I wanted to come to a small cot as light faded, to sit in a chair by a fire, my back aching from work, my hands rough with toil, and hold a little girl in my lap while a woman who loved me told me of her day. #Quote by Robin Hobb
Valor quotes by Herman Melville
#58. The frenzies of the chase had by this time worked them bubblingly up, like old wine worked anew. Whatever pale fears and forebodings some of them might have felt before; these were not only now kept out of sight through the growing awe of Ahab, but they were broken up, and on all sides routed, as timid prairie hares that scatter before the bounding bison. The hand of Fate had snatched all their souls; and by the stirring perils of the previous day; the rack of the past night's suspense; the fixed, unfearing, blind, reckless way in which their wild craft went plunging towards its flying mark; by all these things, their hearts were bowled along. The wind that made great bellies of their sails, and rushed the vessel on by arms invisible as irresistible; this seemed the symbol of that unseen agency which so enslaved them to the race.

They were one man, not thirty. For as the one ship that held them all; though it was put together of all contrasting things - oak, and maple, and pine wood; iron, and pitch, and hemp - yet all these ran into each other in the one concrete hull, which shot on its way, both balanced and directed by the long central keel; even so, all the individualities of the crew, this man's valor, that man's fear; guilt and guiltiness, all varieties were welded into oneness, and were all directed to that fatal goal which Ahab their one lord and keel did point to.

The rigging lived. The mast-heads, like the tops of tall palms, were outspread #Quote by Herman Melville
Valor quotes by V.S. Carnes
#59. I know I am flaky, I accept that - and I know, as well, that I can mangle the good king's English like no one else in my or the next ten governesses' acquaintances, but that will not prevent me from speaking! I may not be as wise as you in the ways of the world, I may not have wounds that run as deeply or scars to wear upon my chest like medals of valor, but at least I don't retreat and hide the moment a soul comes within reach of my fingers! #Quote by V.S. Carnes
Valor quotes by Chirag Tulsiani
#60. Our hearts bear a similarity with storerooms.
We hold in them our trampled convictions, our fears, suppressed acts of valor, disappointments, enmity, anguish, secrets, things we wish we should have done, things we wish we shouldn't have, regret.
And continue piling them up with emotions, memories, conversations which did happen and conversations which didn't, soured relationships and bitter people all of which we should have discarded, we keep it within until there is no space left, until the room is full, occupied after which we go on to lock it.
Once in a while we happen to open the room and sight the dust accumulated all over, we relive each moment, each memory and each emotion again and soon fall upon the realization as to how deeply the room is in need of cleaning and so we clean it.
We clean it so that we can fill it once more, hold it, bear it, relish it, heal from it and then finally let it go. #Quote by Chirag Tulsiani
Valor quotes by John Cheever
#61. We can cherish nothing less than our random understanding of death and the earth-shaking love that draws us to one another ... Cleanliness and valor will be our watchwords. Nothing less will get us past the armed sentry and over the mountainous border. #Quote by John Cheever
Valor quotes by William Shakespeare
#62. Now he'll outstare the lighting. To be furious
Is to be frightened out of fear, and in that mood
The dove will peck the estridge; and I see still
A diminution in our captain's brain
Restores his heart. When valor preys on reason,
It eats the sword it fights with. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Valor quotes by Renzo Novatore
#63. Every society seeks to confine me to the august limits of the permitted and the prohibited. But I do not acknowledge these limits, for nothing is forbidden and all is permitted to those who have the force, and the valor. #Quote by Renzo Novatore
Valor quotes by Robert L. Millet
#64. Valor represents bravery and strength of character, boldness, and fortitude - all qualities that prepare a person to act responsibly in times of need, of challenge, or of danger. #Quote by Robert L. Millet
Valor quotes by Jim Butcher
#65. Discretion is the better part of not getting exsanguinated. #Quote by Jim Butcher
Valor quotes by J. Valor
#66. The instatement of the One Religion was surely the Magnates' most cunning move: a device through which they were able to access and harness the incalculable power of the people's spiritual fervor ... Elijah could imagine the Magnates taking cold pleasure in their handicraft.
Where chaos ruled, people both high and low were easy to manipulate. #Quote by J. Valor
Valor quotes by Elizabeth Keckley
#67. Mr. Lincoln was generous by nature, and though his whole heart was in the war, he could not but respect the valor of those opposed to him. His soul was too great for the narrow, selfish views of partisanship. Brave by nature himself, he honored bravery in others, even his foes. #Quote by Elizabeth Keckley
Valor quotes by Stephen R. Lawhead
#68. He also possessed Aurelius' curious innocence in battle: the fearless forgetting which led him to attempt and to achieve the impossible. This would, of course, come to be noticed much later. But even now he could be seen to exhibit a certain disregard for his own safety. I recognized it well, and knew its source, for I had ridden with Aurelius.
In anyone else it would have been called carelessness. Or foolishness, more like. But it was never that. Arthur simply did not feel afraid. Daring, bravery, boldness, valor - these are qualities of overcoming fear.
What is it, then, when there is no fear? #Quote by Stephen R. Lawhead
Valor quotes by Frank Herbert
#69. Grave this on your memory, lad: A world is supported by four things ... " she held up four big-knuckled fingers. " ... the learning of the wise, the justice of the great, the prayers of the righteous and the valor of the brave. But all of these things are as nothing ... " She closed her fingers into a fist. " ... without a ruler who knows the art of ruling. Make that the science of your tradition! #Quote by Frank Herbert
Valor quotes by Riley Hart
#70. You may refer to me as Prince Merrick or simply Merrick for this trip. We are just two companions enjoying a simple horse ride together."
"I don't bite."
"I thought…maybe your family would like to have it. To know you are…well cared for and…safe."
What the prince had done for him…drawing his likeness with such skill and for Cassius's family…why would he do something like that? He couldn't make sense of it, not from their time in the barn, nor from their ride today. The truth lingered there, teased the edges of his brain, but Cassius couldn't let himself believe it. There was no way Prince Merrick could be interested in him. Unless it was as Valor said and what Cassius knew to be true: men sometimes lay with other men, even if just to satisfy their carnal urges #Quote by Riley Hart
Valor quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#71. A cold and searching wind drives away all contagion, and nothing can withstand it but what has a virtue in it, and accordingly, whatever we meet with in cold and bleak places, as the tops of mountains, we respect for a sort of sturdy innocence, a Puritan toughness. All things beside seem to be called in for shelter, and what stays out must be part of the original frame of the universe, and of such valor as God himself. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Valor quotes by C. Gockel
#72. Today, valor and courage are hard to find. People are fickle, angry, resentful and selfish. It stops them from having courage and fighting for something larger than oneself. #Quote by C. Gockel
Valor quotes by Eve Langlais
#73. Chests heaving, she found herself facing Jaro, the slick sheen of blood not a deterrent, not when it proved his valor. Eyes glittering, he took a step toward her, and she must have moved as well because a moment later, she found herself pressed against him, her hands dangling by her sides, still clenching her blades as he caught her lips with his own. Their first kiss. Actually, her only kiss. And oh my, did it ignite the flames of her desire. #Quote by Eve Langlais
Valor quotes by Philip Sidney
#74. Valor is abased by too much loftiness. #Quote by Philip Sidney
Valor quotes by Bernard DeVoto
#75. This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn. #Quote by Bernard DeVoto
Valor quotes by Joseph Conrad
#76. It was unearthly, and the men were--No, they were not inhuman. Well, you know, that was the worst of it--this suspicion of their not being inhuman. It would come slowly to one. They howled, and leaped, and spun, and made horrid faces; but what thrilled you was just the thought of their humanity--like yours--the thought of your remote kinship with this wild and passionate uproar. Ugly. Yes, it was ugly enough; but if you were man enough you would admit to yourself that there was in you just the faintest trace of a response to the terrible frankness of that noise, a dim suspicion of there being a meaning in it which you--you so remote from the night of first ages--could comprehend.
And why not? The mind of man is capable of anything--because everything is in it, all the past as well as all the future. What was there after all? Joy, fear, sorrow, devotion, valor, rage--who can tell?--but truth--truth stripped of its cloak of time.
Let the fool gape and shudder--the man knows, and can look on without a wink.
But he must at least be as much of a man as these on the shore. He must meet that truth with his own true stuff--with his own inborn strength.
Principles? Principles won't do. Acquisitions, clothes, pretty rags--rags that would fly off at the first good shake. No; you want a deliberate belief. An appeal to me in this fiendish row--is there? Very well; I hear; I admit, but I have a voice too, and for good or evil mine is the speech that cannot be silenced. #Quote by Joseph Conrad
Valor quotes by Nathan Toulane
#77. You politicians make me sick with your heroics!
How to die with valor. How to die with dignity.

When you should be learning: how to live like a human being. #Quote by Nathan Toulane
Valor quotes by Mark Helprin
#78. Lower [plane] than one of those who perished. It was their war, not mine. I was able to walk out of it, leave it behind. Though God preserved me, the best stories were theirs, and these were cut short. The real story of a war is no story at all - blackness, sadness, silence. The stories they tell of comradeship and valor are all to make up for what they lacked. When I was in the army I was always surrounded by thousands of men, and yet I was almost always alone. Whenever I made friends, they were killed.
"If I describe what I saw of war, you'll know it from the point of view of the living, and that is the smallest part of the truth. The truth itself is what was finally apprehended by those who didn't come back. #Quote by Mark Helprin
Valor quotes by Elizabeth Alder
#79. There is no magic herb that makes a brave man. Courage is knowing that what you do is necessary. Don't doubt yourself, Shadow. There is more valor in your heart than you realize. #Quote by Elizabeth Alder
Valor quotes by Robert Brown Butler
#80. Many potential readers will skip the shopping cart or cash-out clerk because they have seen so many disasters reported in the news that they've acquired a panic mentality when they think of them. "Disasters scare me to death!" they cry. "I don't want to read about them!"
But really, how can a picture hurt you?
Better that each serve as a Hallmark card that greets your fitful fevers with reason and uncurtains your valor. Then, so gospeled, you may see that defeating a disaster is as innocently easy as deciding to go out to dinner. Remove the dread that bars your doors of perception, and you will enjoy a banquet of treats that will make the difference between suffering and safety. You will enter a brave new world that will erase your panic, and release you from the grip of terror, and relieve you of the deadening effects of indifference - and you will find that switch of initiative that will energize your intelligence, empower your imagination, and rouse your sense of vigilance in ways that will tilt the odds of danger from being forever against you to being always in your favor. Indeed, just thinking about a disaster is one of the best things you can do - because it allows you to imagine how you would respond in a way that is free of pain and destruction.

Another reason why disasters seem so scary is that many victims tend to see them as a whole rather than divide them into much smaller and more manageable problems. A disaster can seem overwhelming when #Quote by Robert Brown Butler
Valor quotes by Charles Sumner
#81. There is the National Flag. He must be cold, indeed, who can look upon its folds rippling in the breeze without pride of country. If he be in a foreign land, the flag is companionship and country itself, with all its endearment ... The very colors have a language which was recognized by our fathers; white is for purity; red, for valor; blue, for justice. And altogether, bunting, stripes, stars, and colors, blazing in the sky, make the flag of our country, to be cherished by all our hearts, to be upheld by all our hands. #Quote by Charles Sumner
Valor quotes by Silius Italicus
#82. Groundless superstition ill befits an army; valor is the only deity that rules in the warrior's breast. #Quote by Silius Italicus
Valor quotes by Bray Wyatt
#83. Urges ... every man has urges. But the true measure of man is to admit them, to learn to control them. The Shield used to refer to themselves as the most dominant force in our universe. But that ain't the way I remember it. They fell victim to the faults of men. Their lust and greed and valor for glory, it led them right down in the pit, where they belong. Tonight, they'll burn for it. For I am no man. I am reborn. Our bond can never be broken, and our urges can never be satisfied. #Quote by Bray Wyatt
Valor quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#84. Awareness is the stepping stone to truth,
truth is the stepping stone to light,
and light is the stepping stone to God.
Existence is the stepping stone to time,
time is the stepping stone to reality,
and reality is the stepping stone to experience.
Virtue is the stepping stone to love,
love is the stepping stone to enlightenment,
and enlightenment is the stepping stone to freedom.
Valor is the stepping stone to hope,
hope is the stepping stone to faith,
and enlightenment is the stepping stone to miracles.
Compassion is the stepping stone to understanding,
understanding is the stepping stone to peace,
and peace is the stepping stone to humanity.
Humility is the stepping stone to patience,
patience is the stepping stone to discipline,
and discipline is the stepping stone to character.
Contentment is the stepping stone to fulfillment,
fulfillment is the stepping stone to happiness,
and happiness is the stepping stone to laughter. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Valor quotes by Riley Hart
#85. Heat stirred in Cassius's gut. His pulse beat hard and heavy like a fist punching against his skin. He knew he should look away but could not. He struggled to make sense of this moment, each moment from the very first when the prince asked Cas to meet him. It was as if he'd stepped inside a fairy tale, a story he would make up for Emily and Elizabeth, a make-believe land where he would have something in common with someone like Prince Merrick. Where someone like the prince would look upon him as an equal. That's what this was, he realized. In this piece of time, they were not prince and servant. They were two men who felt tied to their lives. At any moment, he expected to be roused by Valor and for all this to have been a dream, but Valor did not come, and Cassius didn't awaken #Quote by Riley Hart
Valor quotes by Pittacus Lore
#86. And that's about all any of us can really hope for, to die with our dignity, to die with honor and valor. To die knowing we did everything we could. #Quote by Pittacus Lore
Valor quotes by Elizabeth Berg
#87. There are guys bleeding to death who don't know it, they're smiling, they're talking, they don't feel pain because they're in shock, they ask you for some water and then they're dead. On D-day I ran past a guy lying on his spilled guts with his eyes closed and his thumb in his mouth. Eisenhower's speech had been read to us over the loudspeaker by our commander when we crossed the channel that morning. What valor and inspiration were in his words- all about how we were embarked on a great crusade, that the hopes and prayers of a liberty loving people were going with us ... I got gooseflesh when he asked for the blessing of almighty god on this great and noble undertaking. But how to reconcile that with spilled guts on a beach and flies in the eyes of some dead nineteen year old kid who traded his life for some words on paper? #Quote by Elizabeth Berg
Valor quotes by Elizabeth Camden
#88. She wasn't a woman of tremendous valor or daring heroism, but she'd always tried to lead her life in a way that would honor Jesus through small acts of goodness every day. Hour by hour, brick by brick, these small choices had slowly built a life of integrity. #Quote by Elizabeth Camden
Valor quotes by Russell S. Bonds
#89. [General-in-Chief of the army, Lieutenant General Winfield] Scott not only believed that the idea [for a battlefield decoration, to wit, a Medal of Honor, or valor] smacked of Old World vanity, elitism, and snobbery, he also thought that such an award was entirely unnecessary. #Quote by Russell S. Bonds
Valor quotes by J. Valor
#90. The boy knelt, shoulders bowed, on the sand in the grey of morning, moaning softly, fearfully. Glowing tendrils of energy streamed across the agitated sky, converging high above him in a vortex of brightness. He flung his hands heavenward and a sheet of blinding brilliance descended from the vortex. It enveloped him and from its core a pulsing sphere of light fell, entering his body and almost tearing him apart. He went rigid, screaming to shatter the heavens, his dark eyes bulging from their sockets, his mouth wide in a rictus of agony. Sirius exploded in a burst of silver-blue radiance, as his howl rose to a shriek beyond hearing and endurance. Out of the light and the sound and the anguish, two names imprinted themselves on his mind. One of them, he knew, was his own.
The other floated for an instant above his consciousness like a fugitive white dove in the morning. #Quote by J. Valor
Valor quotes by Virgil
#91. Who asks whether the enemy was defeated by strategy or valor? #Quote by Virgil
Valor quotes by George R R Martin
#92. Did you teach him wisdom as well as valor, Ned! She wondered. Did you teach him how to
Kneel! The grave yards of the Seven Kinfdoms are full of brave men who had never learned that lesson.

Valor quotes by William Shakespeare
#93. I told you, sir, they were red-hot with drinking; so full of valor that they smote the air, for breathing in their faces, beat the ground for kissing of their feet. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Valor quotes by Thomas Browne
#94. Where life is more terrible than death, it is then the truest valor to dare to live. #Quote by Thomas Browne
Valor quotes by Monty Jay
#95. I miss being the person she went to for everything.
Not having Valor in my life was like having a huge hole in my heart. I didn't realize how much of my life she filled until she left. #Quote by Monty Jay
Valor quotes by Paul Tsongas
#96. America is hope. It is compassion. It is excellence. It is valor. #Quote by Paul Tsongas
Valor quotes by Douglas Adams
#97. Just as discretion was the better part of valor, so was cowardice the better part of discretion, he valiantly hid himself in the closet. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Valor quotes by Walter Bagehot
#98. War both needs and generates certain virtues; not the highest, but what may be called the preliminary virtues, as valor, veracity, the spirit of obedience, the habit of discipline. Any of these, and of others like them, when possessed by a nation, and no matter how generated, will give them a military advantage, and make them more likely to stay in the race of nations. #Quote by Walter Bagehot
Valor quotes by Freeman Dyson
#99. The traditional respect which nations pay to military valor cannot be denied. As every country has a right to self-defense, every country has a right to give honor to its military leaders. But the honoring of military leaders brings deadly danger to mankind unless both the moral authority granted to them and the technical means at their disposal are strictly limited. Military power should never be confused with moral virtue, and military leaders should never be entrusted with weapons of unlimited destruction. #Quote by Freeman Dyson
Valor quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#100. No profession or occupation is more pleasing than the military; a profession or exercise both noble in execution (for the strongest, most generous and proudest of all virtues is true valor) and noble in its cause. No utility either more just or universal than the protection of the repose or defense of the greatness of one's country. The company and daily conversation of so many noble, young and active men cannot but be well-pleasing to you. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Valor quotes by George R.R. Martin
#101. On Dorne and the North:
One is hot and one is cold, yet these ancient kingdoms of sand and snow are set apart from the rest of Westeros by history, culture, and tradition.
Both are thinly peopled compared to the lands betwixt. Both cling stubbornly to their own laws and their own traditions. Neither was ever truly conquered by the dragons. The king in the North accepted Aegon Targaryen as his overlord peaceably, whilst Dorne resisted the might of the Targaryens valiantly for almost two hundred years, before finally submitting to the Iron Throne through marriage.
Dornishmen and Northmen alike are derided as savages by the ignorant of the five 'civilized' kingdoms, and celebrated for their valor by those who have crossed swords with them. #Quote by George R.R. Martin

#104. Valor is the contempt of death and pain. #Quote by Tacitus
Valor quotes by Steven Pressfield
#105. This, I realized now watching Dienekes rally and tend to his men, was the role of the officer: to prevent those under this command, at all stages of battle
before, during and after
from becoming "possessed." To fire their valor when it flagged and rein in their fury when it threatened to take them out of hand. That was Dienekes' job. That was why he wore the transverse-crested helmet of an officer. His was not, I could see now, the heroism of an Achilles. He was not a superman who waded invulnerably into the slaughter, single-handedly slaying the foe by myriads. He was just a man doing a job. A job whose primary attribute was self-restraint and self-composure, not for his own sake, but for those whom he led by his example. #Quote by Steven Pressfield
Valor quotes by Tacitus
#106. Valor is of no service, chance rules all, and the bravest often fall by the hands of cowards. #Quote by Tacitus
Valor quotes by John F. Kennedy
#107. In a lonely grave, forgotten and unknown, lies "the man who saved a President," and who as a result may well have preserved for ourselves and posterity Constitutional government in the United States - the man who performed in 1868 what one historian has called "the most heroic act in American history, incomparably more difficult than any deed of valor upon the field of battle" - but a United States Senator whose name no one recalls: Edmund G. Ross of Kansas. The #Quote by John F. Kennedy
Valor quotes by Josh Billings
#108. True valor is like honesty; it enters into all that a man sees and does. #Quote by Josh Billings
Valor quotes by Amy Harmon
#109. I'd often wondered, absorbed in piles of research, if the magic of history would be lost if we could go back and live it. Did we varnish the past and make heroes of average men and imagine beauty and valor where there was only dirge and desperation? Or like the old man looking back on his youth, remembering only the things he'd seen, did the angle of our gaze sometimes cause us to miss the bigger picture? I didn't think time offered clarity so much as time stripped away the emotion that colored memories. The Irish Civil War had happened eighty years before I'd traveled to Ireland. Not so far that the people had forgotten it, but enough time had passed that more - or maybe less - cynical eyes could pull the details apart and look at them for what they were. #Quote by Amy Harmon
Valor quotes by Carl Sagan
#110. Planetary exploration satisfies our inclination for great enterprises and wanderings and quests that has been with us since our days as hunters and gatherers on the East African savannahs a million years ago. By chance - it is possible, I say, to imagine many skeins of historical causality in which this would not have transpired - in our age we are able to begin again.

Exploring other worlds employs precisely the same qualities of daring, planning, cooperative enterprise, and valor that mark the finest in military tradition. Never mind the night launch of an Apollo spacecraft bound for another world. That makes the conclusion foregone. Witness mere F-14s taking off from adjacent flight decks, gracefully canting left and right, afterburners flaming, and there's something that sweeps you away - or at least it does me. And no amount of knowledge of the potential abuses of carrier task forces can affect the depth of that feeling. It simply speaks to another part of me. It doesn't want recriminations or politics. It just wants to fly. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Valor quotes by Pierre Corneille
#111. True, I am young, but for souls nobly born valor doesn't await the passing of years. #Quote by Pierre Corneille
Valor quotes by Winston Churchill
#112. Arm yourselves, and be ye men of valor, and be in readiness for the conflict; for it is better for us to perish in battle than to look upon the outrage of our nation and our altar. #Quote by Winston Churchill
Valor quotes by Claude Adrien Helvetius
#113. Discipline is, in a manner, nothing else but the art of inspiring the soldiers with greater fear of their officers than of the enemy. This fear has often the effect of courage: but it cannot prevail against the fierce and obstinate valor of people animated by fanaticism, or warm love of their country. #Quote by Claude Adrien Helvetius

Valor quotes by Patrick Henry, American Patriot
#118. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave."

Valor quotes by Nancy Gibbs

an armor to brag about! Save his dignity before that armor-maker because of a promise? Foolish ... foolish! If the old man jeered at him, why should it matter anymore; a common suit of armor would do as well! Armor did not make a man, nor did it signify valor.

Valor quotes by Arthur Herman
#126. The agitation for a Scottish militia failed to move legislators in London. But it did set a new standard for later debates about the future of free societies, and the place of military virtues and military arms in them. The idea that a free people needed to keep and bear arms in order to defend their liberty was an ancient one, reaching back to the Greeks and forward to Andrew Fletcher. But now Ferguson and his friends had added something new, a social-psychological dimension. By owning weapons and learning to use them, a commercial people can keep alive a collective sense of honor, valor, and physical courage, traditions that no society, no matter how sophisticated and advanced, can afford to do without. #Quote by Arthur Herman
Valor quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#127. Valor is strength, not of legs and arms, but of heart and soul; it consists not in the worth of our horse or our weapons, but in our own. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Valor quotes by Robert Frost
#128. The Trial By Existence

Even the bravest that are slain
Shall not dissemble their surprise
On waking to find valor reign,
Even as on earth, in paradise;
And where they sought without the sword
Wide fields of asphodel fore'er,
To find that the utmost reward
Of daring should be still to dare.

The light of heaven falls whole and white
And is not shattered into dyes,
The light for ever is morning light;
The hills are verdured pasture-wise;
The angel hosts with freshness go,
And seek with laughter what to brave; -
And binding all is the hushed snow
Of the far-distant breaking wave.

And from a cliff-top is proclaimed
The gathering of the souls for birth,
The trial by existence named,
The obscuration upon earth.
And the slant spirits trooping by
In streams and cross- and counter-streams
Can but give ear to that sweet cry
For its suggestion of what dreams!

And the more loitering are turned
To view once more the sacrifice
Of those who for some good discerned
Will gladly give up paradise.
And a white shimmering concourse rolls
Toward the throne to witness there
The speeding of devoted souls
Which God makes his especial care.

And none are taken but who will,
Having first heard the life read out
That opens earthward, good and ill, < #Quote by Robert Frost
Valor quotes by Rachel Held Evans

Valor quotes by Arturo Perez Reverte
#132. The Spaniard will become a worthless slave, devoid of soul, of reason, of virtue; forbidden by his inhuman jailers from ever seeing the light. An unfortunate wretch subjugated by men who are his equals but who, in his stupidity, his laziness, his superstition, he believes to be anointed by some higher power: these gods among men, wearing ermine and purple, black capes and cassocks, who under every sun and at every latitude will always exploit a man's foolishness in order to enslave him, to make him brutish and miserable, to sap his valor and his courage. #Quote by Arturo Perez Reverte
Valor quotes by Horace Walpole

Valor quotes by Tessa Dare
#137. I have an announcement," her father said, brandishing a sheaf of official-looking papers. "Since Bramwell has failed to muster the appropriate enthusiasm, I thought I would share the good news with you, his friends." He adjusted his spectacles. "In honor of his valor and contributions in the liberation of Portugal, Bramwell has been made an earl. I have here the letters patent from the Prince Regent himself. He will henceforth be known as Lord Rycliff."
Susanna choked on her tea. "What? Lord Rycliff? But that title is extinct. There hasn't been an Earl of Rycliff since…"
"Since 1354. Precisely. The title has lain dormant for nearly five centuries. When I wrote to him emphasizing Bramwell's contributions, the Prince Regent was glad of my suggestion to revive it."
A powder blast in the Red Salon could not have stunned Susanna more. Her gaze darted to the officer in question. For a man elevated to the peerage, he didn't look happy about it, either.
"Good God," Payne remarked. "An earl? This can't be borne. As if it weren't bad enough that he controls my fortune, my cousin now outranks me. Just what does this earldom include, anyhow?"
"Not much besides the honor of the title. No real lands to speak of, except for the-"
"The castle," Susanna finished, her voice remote.
Her castle. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Valor quotes by Berthold Auerbach

Valor quotes by Tim O'Brien
#139. In the interests of truth, however, I want to make it clear that Norman Bowker was in no way responsible for what happened to Kiowa. Norman did not experience a failure of nerve that night. He did not freeze up or lose the Silver Star for valor. That part of the story is my own. #Quote by Tim O'Brien
Valor quotes by Maggie Stiefvater
#140. As always, there was an all-American war hero look to him, coded in his tousled brown hair, his summer-narrowed hazel eyes, the straight nose that ancient Anglo-Saxons had graciously passed on to him. Everything about him suggested valor and power and a firm handshake. #Quote by Maggie Stiefvater

Valor quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough

Valor quotes by Plutarch
#144. Distressed valor challenges great respect, even from an enemy. #Quote by Plutarch
Valor quotes by William James
#145. What we really need the poet's and orator's I help to keep alive in us is not, then, the common and gregarious courage which Robert Shaw showed when he marched with you, men of the Seventh Regiment. It is that more lonely courage which he showed when he dropped his warm commission in the glorious Second to head your dubious fortunes, negroes of the Fifty-fourth. That lonely kind of courage (civic courage as we call it in times of peace) is the kind of valor to which the monuments of nations should most of all be reared. #Quote by William James
Valor quotes by Jacob Grimm
#146. The tailor put on the girdle, and resolved to go forth into the world, because he thought his workshop was too small for his valor. #Quote by Jacob Grimm

Valor quotes by Tessa Dare
#149. The further he raided, the closer he came to the other rooms. Those unused, cobwebbed chambers of her heart. Would he dare to venture there? She doubted. Jumping off a cliff was a flashy sort of courage, but a man would need true strength and valor to break through those padlocked doors. There were dark, uncharted spaces within her that had been built to house love, and even she was afraid to explore them. Terrified to learn just how vast and how achingly empty they truly were. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Valor quotes by J. Valor
#150. His mind turned, gradually comprehending, memories flooding his awareness that were not his own: memories from the timelessness before the Being within him had fallen into this body; of a Homeworld and a Consortium of Light that had sent two Beings away to prove themselves worthy - of one another and of their place in their own world. #Quote by J. Valor
Valor quotes by John Milton
#151. If at great things thou would'st arrive, Get riches first, get wealth, and treasure heap, Not difficult, if thou hearken to me; Riches are mine, fortune is in my hand, They whom I favor thrive in wealth amain, While virtue, valor, wisdom, sit in want. #Quote by John Milton
Valor quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
#152. Courage multiplies the chances of success by sometimes making opportunities, and always availing itself of them; and in this sense Fortune may be said to favor fools by those who, however prudent in their opinion, are deficient in valor and enterprise. #Quote by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Valor quotes by Philip Sidney
#153. The truly valiant dare everything but doing anybody an injury. #Quote by Philip Sidney

Valor quotes by Ben Jonson
#155. A valiant man Ought not to undergo, or tempt a danger, But worthily, and by selected ways, He undertakes with reason, not by chance. His valor is the salt t' his other virtues, They're all unseason'd without it. #Quote by Ben Jonson
Valor quotes by Rumi

What is a saint? One whose wine has turned to vinegar.
If you're still wine-drunkenly

brave, don't step forward. When your sheep becomes a lion, then come. It is said

of hypocrites, "They have considerable valor among themselves!" But they scatter when

a real enemy appears. Muhammad told his young soldiers, "There is no courage before

an engagement." A drunk foams at the mouth talking about what he will do when he gets his sword

drawn, but the chance arrives, and he remains sheathed as an onion. Premeditating,

he's eager for wounds. Then his bag gets touched by a needle, and he deflates. What sort of

person says that he or she wants to be polished and pure, then complains about being

handled roughly? Love is a lawsuit where harsh evidence must be brought in. To settle

the case, the judge must see evidence. You've heard that every buried treasure has a snake

guarding it. Kiss the snake to discover the treasure! The severe treatment is not toward

you, but the qualities that block your growth. A rug beater doesn't beat the rug, but

rather the dirt. A horse trainer switches not the horse, but the going wrong. Imprison

your mash in a dark vat, so it can become wine. Someone asks, "Don't you worry

about God's wrath when you spank a child?" "I'm not spanking my child, but the demon

#162. Although extraordinary valor was displayed by the entire corps of Spartans and Thespians, yet bravest of all was declared the Spartan Dienekes. It is said that on the eve of battle, he was told by a native of Trachis that the Persian archers were so numerous that, their arrows would block out the sun. Dienekes, however, undaunted by this prospect, remarked with a laugh, 'Good. Then we will fight in the shade. #Quote by Herodotus

Valor quotes by Stephen Jay Gould
#164. The vigorous branching of life's tree, and not the accumulating valor of mythical marches to progress, lies behind the persistence and expansion of organic diversity in our tough and constantly stressful world. And if we do not grasp the fundamental nature of branching as the key to life's passage across the geological stage, we will never understand evolution aright. #Quote by Stephen Jay Gould

Valor quotes by David Rakoff
#169. I find life itself provides ample and sufficient tests of my valor and mettle: illness; betrayal; fruitless searches for love; working for the abusive, the insane, and the despotic. All challenges easily as thrilling to me as scrambling over icy rock in a pair of barely adequate boots. #Quote by David Rakoff
Valor quotes by Elijah Muhammad

Valor quotes by Richard Corliss
#171. Fess up, 'Hunger Games' fans: Does anyone care about Peeta or find him attractive? He's the Ron Weasley of the series: he gets points for callow valor and sympathy for his run of bad luck, but he remains a pasty, earnest bore. #Quote by Richard Corliss
Valor quotes by Inazo Nitobe
#172. Tranquillity is courage in repose. It is a statical manifestation of valor, as daring deeds are a dynamical. A truly brave man is ever serene; he is never taken by surprise; nothing ruffles the equanimity of his spirit. #Quote by Inazo Nitobe

Valor quotes by Jane Porter

Valor quotes by Richard Brinsley Sheridan

Valor quotes by Edward Gibbon
#179. Justice, humanity, or political wisdom, are qualities they are too little acquainted with in themselves, to appreciate them in others. Valor will acquire their esteem, and liberality will purchase their suffrage; but the first of these merits is often lodged in the most savage breasts; the latter can only exert itself at the expense of the public; and both may be turned against the possessor of the throne, by the ambition of a daring rival. #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Valor quotes by General T. Michael Moseley
#180. Airman's Creed

I am an American Airman.
I am a Warrior.
I have answered my Nation's call.

My mission is to fly, fight, and win.
I am faithful to a proud heritage,
A tradition of honor,
And a legacy of valor.

I am an American Airman.
Guardian of freedom and justice,
My nation's sword and shield,
Its sentry and avenger,
I defend my country with my life.

I am and American Airman.
Wingman, Leader, Warrior.
I will never leave an Airman behind,
I will never falter,
And I will not fail. #Quote by General T. Michael Moseley
Valor quotes by Marguerite Wilkinson
#181. I never cut my neighbor's throat;
My neighbor's gold I never stole;
I never spoiled his house and land;
But God have mercy on my soul!
For I am haunted night and day
By all the deeds I have not done;
O unattempted loveliness!
O costly valor never won! #Quote by Marguerite Wilkinson
Valor quotes by Michael Josephson
#182. Successful or not, acts of physical courage always bring honor. It is the smaller forms of valor - standing up for principle at the risk of social disapproval, economic loss or injury to career - that require the greatest moral will power. Since there is usually little upside to winning and a significant and often lasting downside to losing, moral courage often requires as much character as physical bravery. #Quote by Michael Josephson
Valor quotes by Lew Wallace
#183. Revolution he contemplated, of course; but the processes of revolution have always been the same, and to lead men into them there have always been required, first, a cause or presence to enlist adherents; second, an end, or something as a practical achievement. As a rule he fights well who has wrongs to redress; but vastly better fights he who, with wrongs as a spur, has also steadily before him a glorious result in prospect
a result in which he can discern balm for wounds, compensation for valor, remembrance and gratitude in the event of death. #Quote by Lew Wallace
Valor quotes by Tecumseh
#184. Show respect to all people, but grovel to none. #Quote by Tecumseh
Valor quotes by Tessa Dare
#185. This is true valor, I hope you know. Legends have sprung from less. All Lancelot did was paddle about in a balmy lake." She smiled. "Lancelot was a knight. You're a viscount. The bar is higher. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Valor quotes by Aristophanes
#186. It often happens that less depends upon the valor of an army than the skill of the leader. #Quote by Aristophanes
Valor quotes by Arthur Conan Doyle

Valor quotes by Edward O. Wilson
#189. It often occurs to me that if, against all odds, there is a judgmental God and heaven, it will come to pass that when the pearly gates open, those who had the valor to think for themselves will be escorted to the head of the line, garlanded, and given their own personal audience. #Quote by Edward O. Wilson

Valor quotes by Gary L. Roberts

Valor quotes by Thomas Paine
#195. Let the world see that this nation can bear prosperity; and that her honest virtue in time of peace is equal to her bravest valor in time of war. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Valor quotes by Barbara W. Tuchman
#196. The author of IRR, who worshipped the King, said he had the valor of Hector, the magnanimity of Achilles, the liberality of Titus, the eloquence of Nestor, and the prudence of Ulysses; that he was the equal of Alexander and not inferior to Roland. But later historians tend to picture him rather as a remorseless, kindless villain. He was probably not a pleasant or a lovable character; none of the Plantagenets were. But a great soldier and a great commander he certainly was. He possessed that one quality without which nothing else in a commander counts: the determination to win. To this everything else - mercy, moderation, tact - was sacrificed. The avarice that so horrifies his critics was not simple greed: it was a quartermaster's greed for his army. His massacre of the prisoners was not simple cruelty, but a deliberate reminder to Saladin to keep faith with the terms agreed to, which that great opponent understood and respected. #Quote by Barbara W. Tuchman
Valor quotes by Christopher Hart
#197. Honorable retreats are no ways inferior to brave charges, as having less fortune, more of discipline, and as much valor. #Quote by Christopher Hart
Valor quotes by Herman Melville
#198. That immaculate manliness we feel within ourselves, so far within us, that it remains intact though all the outer character seem gone; bleeds with keenest anguish at the undraped spectacle of a valor-ruined man. #Quote by Herman Melville
Valor quotes by Livy
#199. Destiny had decreed that the Gauls were still to feel the true meaning of Roman valor, for when the raiders started on their mission Rome's lucky star led them to Ardea, where Camillus was living in exile, more grieved by the misfortunes of his country than by his own. Growing, as he felt, old and useless, filled with resentment against gods and men, he was asking in the bitterness of his heart where now were the men who had stormed Veii and Falerii - the men whose courage in every fight had been greater even than their success, when suddenly he heard the news that a Gallic army was near. The men of Ardea, he knew, were in anxious consultation, and it had not been his custom to assist at their deliberations; but now, like a man inspired, he burst into the Council chamber. #Quote by Livy
Valor quotes by Meister Eckhart
#200. There is no greater valor nor no sterner fight. He who would be what he ought to be must stop being what he is. #Quote by Meister Eckhart
