Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear -not absence of fear.
You can understand the fear, respect it, and get to know it. Just maybe, in time, it will not be so fearsome.
The Virtue of Courage
Do you have the heart to forge ahead? Can you keep going even though your body and your mind wants you to stop? There are those who bend underneath the pressure, and then there are those who have the fortitude to continue standing. The heart of courage, a chief virtue of the soul.
