Best Courage Quotes header 1

Have you ever wondered why it is that being called a coward is considered such a grave insult? It’s because courage is the lynchpin of character — that which makes possible every single one of its other dimensions; as Samuel Johnson once said (and Winston Churchill later paraphrased): “courage is reckoned the greatest of all virtues; because, unless a man has that virtue, he has no security for preserving any other.”

The exercise of any virtue requires the capacity to endure hardship, conquer fear and temptation, choose the riskier and more strenuous path when you’d rather take the easier way out — and this capacity is enabled by courage. Without courage, it’s impossible to be disciplined, honest, chaste, patient, self-reliant, compassionate, or resolute. Without courage, it’s impossible to be anything other than a non-entity.

While few of us are called to charge into battle these days, we all still need an ample arsenal of courage to stand up for those we love, defend unpopular beliefs, take professional and creative risks, and continue to choose the good, true, and honorable in a world where it can be hard to keep carrying the fire. And as Theodore Roosevelt observed, it is only by exercising courage in these smaller ways, that we’ll be able to summon it in more dramatic fashion should a true crisis arise.

If your heart could use strengthening, below we present 54 of the best quotes about courage ever spoken and set down. While we did our best to vet them, and successfully confirmed the accuracy and authorship of 90%+ of them, we drew many from old books from the 19th century, which didn’t include the quote’s original source, and used obscure translations of foreign/ancient texts that make the tracing of its origin difficult. But if the province of a few of the quotes is shadowy, the truth behind all of them is sound. Read them over, commit some to memory, write one down you particularly like and stick it to your bathroom mirror. And then go forth with greater fortitude to face life’s challenges.

Fortune favors the bold!

“The conscience of every man recognizes courage as the foundation of manliness, and manliness as the perfection of human character.”Thomas Hughes
“Without courage there cannot be truth, and without truth there can be no other virtue.”Sir Walter Scott
“Courage charms us, because it indicates that a man loves an idea better than all things in the world, that he is thinking neither of his bed, nor his dinner, nor his money, but will venture all to put in act the invisible thought of his mind.”Ralph Waldo Emerson
“We have more respect for a man who robs boldly on the highway, than for a fellow who jumps out of a ditch, and knocks you down behind your back. Courage is a quality so necessary for maintaining virtue, that it is always respected even when it is associated with vice.”Samuel Johnson
“A man without courage is a knife without an edge.”Proverb
“Courage consists, not in blindly overlooking danger, but in seeing and conquering it.”Jean Paul
“All brave men love; for he only is brave who has affections to fight for.”Nathaniel Hawthorne
“Fortitude is the guard and support of the other virtues.”John Locke
“It is an error to suppose that courage means courage in everything. Most people are brave only in the dangers to which they accustom themselves.”Edward Bulwer-Lytton
“A man without courage is to me the most despicable thing under the sun, a travesty on the whole scheme of creation.”Jack London
“Conscience is the root of all true courage; if a man would be brave let him obey his conscience.”James Freeman Clarke
“The best hearts are ever the bravest.”Laurence Sterne
“Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear — not absence of fear.”Mark Twain
“The man who has never been in danger cannot answer for his courage.”François de La Rochefoucauld
“Courage is grace under pressure.”Ernest Hemingway
“Courage without discipline is nearer beastliness than manhood.”Sir P. Sidney
“Physical courage which despises all danger, will make a man brave in one way; and moral courage, which despises all opinion, will make a man brave in another. The former would seem most necessary for the camp; the latter for the council; but to constitute a great man both are

Maserati – Beckham Meets Damiano: Clash of The Titans

The original article can be found here: Maserati: Beckham meets Damiano: Clash of the Titans

The glitz and glamour of two icons who come from radically different worlds coming together under the banner of luxury is a sight to behold. Imagine the legend David Beckham – a name that is synonymous with sportsmanship, elegance, and swagger – facing off against Damiano David – the wild and electric soul and heart of Maneskin – both brought together by a Maserati. Maserati Folgore Electric, not just any Maserati.

Gracie Opulanza is here to give you all the details. I haven’t even driven it!

The Folgore Electric: A Charge of Luxury

The Maserati Folgore was designed to be a thunderbolt of a car. The name “Folgore,” Italian lightning, fits this beauty like it was created from its blueprint. When I first saw it, I got that familiar rush. It was the same feeling as when I put on a pair high-heeled stilettos and wrapped a silken scarlet around my neck. This vehicle is not only a head-turner, but it also spins people around!

You feel like the star of an Italian film as you cruise through the streets. The scenery is blurred, but the style is sharp. The Folgore is all about making an impact without having to say a single word.

Beckham Meets Damiano – Clash of Titans

Let’s now talk about the titans. David Beckham has never been just a football player. He is a fashionista, philanthropist and connoisseur. Combine him with Damiano David – the embodiment of unfiltered passion, Italian charisma and raw, raw emotion.

It was a battle of style and power, not prowess. Beckham with his tailored suits, impeccable grooming and Damiano the modern rock god in leather and tattoos. It was more a symphony than a competition, with each participant playing a part in an ageless dance.

Drive Passion: Electricity with Italian Flair

A trident-branded electric car is like a fine wine. It’s all about taste, sustainability and being forward-thinking. Maserati doesn’t simply jump on the electric wagon; they are reinventing it. Folgore is Maserati’s pledge of innovation wrapped in the sleek and seductive lines that are Italian design.

The Folgore is a vehicle that moves as if it were a whisper, but it impacts as if it was a scream. I am zooming through Italy from the cobbled roads of Rome to sun-kissed beaches of Amalfi. It is a vision of the future and a tribute to those who dare dream big and drive differently. Let’s face it, behind the wheel, the road sings your praises.

Electricity: The future is here.

The soul of driving is not sacrificed by switching to electric. It actually amplifies the relationship between driver and road. The hum of the electric engine is a symphony, a new beginning. Maserati’s use of Beckham and Damiano to promote this revolution sends a clear message: electric isn’t just about efficiency, it is about excitement.

Wrapping up with a Spark

As I conclude my thoughts about this exciting convergence of style, power and sustainability, I feel energized. Maserati Folgore is more than a car; it’s an entire movement. Beckham and Damiano’s distinct charm and rebellious spirit captures this spirit perfectly. Together, they make it clear that choosing Folgore is more than just buying a car. You are choosing a lifestyle. A statement. And, most importantly, your future.

Here’s to the brave, the beautiful and the electrified. Your journeys and adventures should be as exciting as the Folgore.

Podcast #983: Grid-Down Medicine — A Guide for When Help is NOT on the Way

listen apple podcasts 10 jpg

Most first aid books will tell you that the final step to treating someone who is injured or ill is to get them professional medical attention.

What if hospitals were too crowded, not accessible, or even non-functioning? What if, in the event of a long-term griddown disaster, you were the only medical resource?

Dr. Joe Alton has a wealth of knowledge in the area that most first-aid guides ignore. He is a retired doctor and co-author of The Survival Medicine Handbook, The Essential Guide to When Help Is Not on the Way. Joe discusses the importance of a family medical asset, and how to become a civilian medic. We talk about the various levels of first-aid kits that you can create, from a personal kit to a field hospital for a community. We also discuss the skills that you may need to survive a grid-down situation, such as burying the dead, using super glue to close a wound, making an improvised filling for your teeth, or protecting yourself against the radiation from nuclear fallout.
