"The wicked flee when no one is pursuing, But the righteous are bold as a lion." - Proverbs 28:1 (NASB)

Courage is the virtue of persevering in a good course of action despite one's fears

  • "In premodern times, the courage of a leader often had to be physical. In the last 500 years it is more often moral. Moral courage is the ability to do what's right even when it is deeply unpopular, even dangerous. Courage is only found where there is the genuine possibility of loss -- loss of friends, reputation, status, power, possessions or, at the extremes, freedom or life." [1]
  • "... when you have the courage to stand up for what is right, it gives other people courage, and if they know they are not going to be standing alone, when they see you standing up, others will take courage and join you."[2]
