Inspirational Quotes

Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.
C. S. Lewis

He who is not courageous enough to take risks will accomplish nothing in life.
Muhammad Ali

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
