You may have noticed by now that I’m all about being courageous, whether it’s in your leadership, career or other areas of your life. It’s those who dare to be different, who are brave enough to do what is right, not just what is easy, that change the world.

There are so many wonderfully inspirational quotes from people from all walks of life that sum up just what true courage really is. I’ve gathered twenty of my favourites to share with you, and I hope they resonate with you!

“Bravery is being the only one who knows you’re afraid.”

Franklin P. Jones

“You cannot swim for new horizons until you have courage to lose sight of the shore.”

William Faulkner

“Being brave means knowing that when you fail, you don’t fail forever.”

Lana Del Rey

“The best way out is always through.”

Robert Frost

“To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily. To not dare is to lose oneself.”

Soren Kierkegaard

“Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience.”

Paulo Coelho

“You can choose courage, or you can choose comfort, but you cannot choose both.”

Brené Brown

“Courage is being scared to death… and saddling up anyway.”

John Wayne


“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”

Winston S. Churchill

“Scared is what you’re feeling. Brave is what you’re doing.”

Emma Donoghue

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

Nelson Mandela

“Never bend your head. Always hold it high. Look the world straight in the eye.”

Helen Keller

“It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried to succeed.”

Theodore Roosevelt

“Without fear there cannot be courage.”

Christopher Paolini

“Taking no chances means wasting your dreams.”

Ellen Hopkins

“Don’t be afraid of being scared. To be afraid is a sign of common sense. Only complete idiots are not afraid of anything.”

Carlos Ruiz Zafón

“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’”

Eleanor Roosevelt

“And one has to understand that braveness is not the absence of fear but rather the strength to keep on going forward despite the fear.”

Paulo Coelho

“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.”

Michelle Obama

“Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm.”

Winston Churchill
