Courage - Without it, Nothing is Possible - A Collection of Quotes

"Bravery is being the only one who knows you're afraid."  ~ Franklin P. Jones
I never used to show people that I'm afraid or sad or disappointed... Though my face reveals it very easily, I usually keep my mouth tightly shut about such kinda feelings. I believed what Franklin P. Jones believed - the lie that bravery is not showing your feelings to people around you. But I no longer believe that and I actually disagree with Mr. Jones about it. There are lots of things one can write about bravery, courage and fearlessness, but why bother, when many amazingly wise people have written it down already with their great command of the language, immortalizing their words forever? :)
These are some great quotes I found in the World Wide Web:

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand.  It's when you know you're licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.  You rarely win, but sometimes you do. ~Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

"Have the courage to live.  Anyone can die."  ~Robert Cody
