Famous Quotes about courage
We unaccustomed to courageexiles from delightlive coiled in shells of lonelinessuntil love leaves its high holy templeand comes into our sightto liberate us into life.Love arrivesand in its train come ecstasiesold memories of pleasureancient histories of pain.Yet if we are boldlove strikes away the chains of fearfrom our souls.We are weaned from our timidityIn the flush of loves lightwe dare be braveAnd suddenly we seethat love costs all we areand will ever be.Yet it is only lovewhich sets us free.

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it.

If I am to be fallen into love I will. And if as a result I will appear to be stupid disillusioned and of poor judgment I will. And I would be damned if I cared what other people think.

I am unbreakable.
You can build walls all the way to the sky and I will find a way to fly above them. You can try to pin me down with a hundred thousand arms but I will find a way to resist.

People who love in a world without walls people who love into hate into refusal against hope and without fear.I love you. Remember. They cannot take it.
Listen to the people who love you. Believe that they are worth living for even when you dont believe it. Seek out the memories depression takes away and project them into the future.

Reason with yourself when you have lost your reason.
Yet each man kills the thing he lovesBy each let this be heardSome do it with a bitter lookSome with a flattering wordThe coward does it with a kissThe brave man with a sword
