Just as your muscles automatically atrophy from lack of use, so your courage will automatically decay in the absence of conscious conditioning. Steve Pavlina Quote Details

More quotes about:

I tell my kids, what is the dif­fer­ence between a hero and a cow­ard? What is the dif­fer­ence between being yel­low and being brave? No dif­fer­ence. Only what you do. They both feel the same. They both fear dying and get­ting hurt. The man who is yel­low refus­es to face up to what he's got to face. The hero is more dis­ci­plined and he fights those feel­ings off and he does what he has to do. But they both feel the same, the hero and the cow­ard. Peo­ple who watch you judge you on what you do, not how you feel. Cus D'Amato Quote Details

But conscience ask the question, is it right? And there comes a time when we must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but one must take it because it is right.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Quote Details
