Be strong and courageous.
           —Joshua 1:9

“Courage,” wrote C.S. Lewis, “is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.”

Is there something you need to do, but you’re dragging your heels because you’re afraid to do it? Until you take the first step your chance of success is zilch. But the first step requires courage; so cowboy up and step out.

Here is a trio of courage quotes that will help you out of the blocks …

Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway.  —John Wayne

Courage can’t see around corners, but goes around them anyway.  —Mignon McGlaughlin

A great deal of talent is lost to the world for want of a little courage. Every day sends to their graves obscure men whose timidity prevented them from making a first effort.  —Sydney Smith

Courage isn’t absence of fear,
but conquest of fear.
