Courage is that Strength of Character that empowers us to be true to ourselves, to take leaps of faith and move forward when we are afraid.
Being courageous means going where our hearts lead us, using what our lives have taught us, saying what the world needs to hear and feeling the exhiliration of making a difference, as while acknowledging the risks, knowing the reward of honesty and action is worth our work.
The greatest instances of Courage come when we widen our focus from beyond ourselves to go from Good to Greater Good.
InSpiritry -- seeing our lives as InSpirational stories of courage -- empowers us to be our bravest selves!

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. Winston Churchill
If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy. Dale Carnegie
True character arises from a deeper well than religion. It is the internalization of moral principles of a society, augmented by those tenets personally chosen by the individual, strong enough to endure through trials of solitude and adversity. The principles are fitted together into what we call integrity, literally the integrated self, wherein personal decisions feel good and true. Character is in turn the enduring source of virtue. It stands by itself and excites admiration in others. Edward O. Wilson
