The ability to do something that frightens one, and yet to proceed despite it all. The eagerness to show your fighting strength in the face of pain, grief and in the midst of dire straits…
Courage is the choice and the willingness to confront agony, pain, danger, uncertainty, or intimidation. Valour is a synonym for courage or bravery, especially in war and battle situations.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave is not the one who does not feel afraid, but the one who conquers that fear.
The very definition of courage is the bravery and the strength to do something that could be utterly devastating and not just dangerous. An example of courage is the ability to stand up to catastrophic illness, to an all powerful enemy, to a bully, to a monster, or to a horrific reversal of fortune.
Courage is the state of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger, fear, or vicissitudes with self-possession, dignity, confidence, and resolution. The quality of the person’s courage is bravery.
“Be of good courage, and let us be courageous for our people, and for the cities of our God, and may the Lord do what seems good to him.”
“But you, take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.”
“Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!”
Having won my battle against this horrible sickness after a month in the ICU of our local UW hospital Northwest campus — I must commend all the Doctors, nurses, and staff, for exceptional bravery, and for showing great Courage under fire, so much so that they gave me the Courage to go on, when I had resigned my fate to meeting my Maker having received the Ultimate Unction from a loving priest…
God Bless You all and Thank you most kindly for your courageous and life saving assistance.
May the good God of Mercy always bless You and keep you safely in the palm of his hands.
