Stop being the sheep and become the lion my friend!
Abhijit Naskar
Character- building education is what the world needs
Abhijit Naskar
Why seek help when you can become the help! Why wish for miracle when you can become the miracle! You are a God O brave-heart
Abhijit Naskar
If you don't allow one to become a lion, one will become a sheep. And the world is already filled with sheeps, which is the major cause of the society's intellectual and moral downfall. For a better future to evolve, where humanism will be an all-pervading virtue and separatism will be a matter of ancient history, the world needs lions.
Abhijit Naskar
Sacrifice everything that is yours, to call up the humans in others.
Abhijit Naskar
No God, no messiah, no prophet can grant your wishes
Abhijit Naskar
I believe in you my friend, so much so, that if any of my ideas make you feel belittled in any manner, I want you to rise against me and throw my work into the fire. Any notion, any book, any institution that weakens the self instead of strengthening it, must be discarded at ones.
Abhijit Naskar
The world needs something from you, my friend. It needs the heart that is deep as the ocean and infinite as the outer-space. Can you provide that my friend! Can you make your will so large and your conscience so sharp that in front of which, a thousand Everests and a thousand Kilimanjaros would bow!
Abhijit Naskar
O my mighty sisters and brothers, forget not that the ideal of humanity is the search of truth. In this pursuit, countless souls have sacrificed themselves in the past. And in this pursuit, countless more shall need to sacrifice themselves.
Abhijit Naskar
The world needs courage and conscience that can penetrate into the darkest mysteries and secrets of the universe.
Abhijit Naskar
Once your character is poured with vigor and your attitude radiates confidence, there is no power in any external force to have any form of authority over you.
Abhijit Naskar
I work to make human beings out of human bodies. I work to make conscience out of mindlessness. I work to make Gods out of obedient worshippers.
Abhijit Naskar
Arise O lion-heart! Awake, O great soldier! Misery has come upon the world. It is wailing for help. It is wailing for redemption. Won't you do anything, my friend!

Sow the seeds of weakness and inferiority in the kids and they'll grow up to be inferior, crawling, insignificant insects. Sow the seeds of courage and they'll become brave-heart leaders who will one day change the course of human history.
Adam Kirk Smith
Problems don't get better with time; they become better when you find bravery. Success demands that you fight your fears.
Alaric Hutchinson
Bravery is the choice to show up and listen to another person, be it a loved one or perceived foe, even when it is uncomfortable, painful, or the last thing you want to do.
Alaric Hutchinson
Practice bravery every day and the self-worth will come.
Alaric Hutchinson
How bittersweet is it to realize that we are the creators of our realities and that we have allowed others to do the creating for us for so many years? So much time wasted…so much guilt, regret and bitterness. It can be easier to numb that pain than face it. Yet once we face our pain and take responsibility, we gain the freedom to move forward and unleash our Divine Potential. We also gain the freedom to move forward and respond to life with Divinity; thus, we alter the very fabric of the collective realities experienced on our planet.
Alaric Hutchinson
Bravery is listening even when you don't want to hear it.
Albert Espinosa
It was yet another reason to stand in awe of them. I think that you should be in awe of anyone who reaches the age of sixty. You've got to be brave to live through so many years.I wondered why, if it's so easy to leave the game, why we carry on playing it?
Alexander the Great
Through every generation of the human race there has been a constant war, a war with fear. Those who have the courage to conquer it are made free and those who are conquered by it are made to suffer until they have the courage to defeat it, or death takes them.
Alexandre Dumas
The truth is that you are afraid.''Afraid? I do not know all the words in the Parisian jargon, and I know not what you mean.
Amaka Imani Nkosazana
You push the TRUTH off a cliff, but it will always fly. You can submerge the TRUTH under water, but it will not drown. You can place the TRUTH in the fire, but it will survive. You can bury the TRUTH beneath the ground, but it will arise. TRUTH always prevails!
Amaka Imani Nkosazana
God is my strength and my defense. When I am weak, he makes me strong. When I am broken, he makes me whole.
Amaka Imani Nkosazana
I Am ! Two powerful words.... You must confess... I Am who God called me to be. I Am a Success. I Am not what you think of me. I Am more than a conqueror. I Am walking by Faith. I Am a Gift.
Amaka Imani Nkosazana
Do not allow your happiness to be controlled by the thoughts of others. People are happy for you one minute and then the next they are looking down their noses at you. You have to find within yourself the kind of happiness that withstands the ups and downs of life. No one should have the power to limit or repress your happiness.
Amelia Earhart
Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace.
Amit Ray
Only the brave men and women can bring peace to the world, not by practicing war but by practicing nonviolence.
Amit Ray
You need bravery for compassion. In the picture of your soul, the bravery points are the most beautiful.
Andrew Ashling
Of course he was afraid of war. Only fools are not. Anaxantis was no fool. He was fully prepared to fight, but only as a last resort.
Andrew Solomon
Listen to the people who love you. Believe that they are worth living for even when you don't believe it. Seek out the memories depression takes away and project them into the future. Be brave; be strong; take your pills. Exercise because it's good for you even if every step weighs a thousand pounds. Eat when food itself disgusts you. Reason with yourself when you have lost your reason.
Anthony Doerr
When I lost my sight, Werner, people said I was brave. When my father left, people said I was brave. But it is not bravery; I have no choice. I wake up and live my life. Don't you do the same?
Arthur Miller
The best work that anybody ever writes is the work that is on the verge of embarrassing him, always.
we get brave.we move.we believe.we keep going.
Ben Carson
There is no freedom without bravery.

In order to grow, I promise you'll have to let go of some habits. 10 times out of 10, they'll be the habits you're most in love with.
Brooke Foss Westcott
Great occasions do not make heroes or cowards; they simply unveil them to the eyes of men. Silently and perceptibly, as we wake or sleep, we grow strong or weak; and last some crisis shows what we have become.
C. JoyBell C.
‎You shouldn't feel so bad about being afraid of so many things. Why not? Because if you weren't afraid never ever, then you couldn't be brave never ever.
C. JoyBell C.
Don't be afraid of your fears. They're not there to scare you. They're there to let you know that something is worth it.
C. JoyBell C.
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. For I would rather be thought of as all of these things, than not love. If in loving, I become the naked woman on the horse, I will ride that horse with my head held high. This is my spirit. I am unbreakable.
C. JoyBell C.
There are two things we should always be 1. raw and 2. ready. When you are raw, you are always ready and when you are ready you usually realize that you are raw. Waiting for perfection is not an answer, one cannot say I will be ready when I am perfect because then you will never be ready, rather one must say I am raw and I am ready just like this right now, how and who I am.
C. JoyBell C.
Life has no victims. There are no victims in this life.No one has the right to point fingers at his/her past and blame it for what he/she is today. We do not have the right to point our finger at someone else and blame that person for how we treat others, today.Don't hide in the corner, pointing fingers at your past. Don't sit under the table, talking about someone who has hurt you. Instead, stand up and face your past! Face your fears! Face your pain! And stomach it all! You may have to do so kicking and screaming and throwing fits and crying- but by all means- face it!This life makes no room for cowards.
C. JoyBell C.
A clown on a throne is still a clown. A king in rags is still a king.
C. JoyBell C.
‎What does it mean if i'm afraid? Does it mean something bad is going to happen? No, it doesn't mean something bad is going to happen. It just means that you have the chance to be brave.
C. JoyBell C.
A lot of pieces I have written have to do with courage. As a result, people think that I am naturally brave. But what people don't know, is that I grew up with phobias and many fears. I was scared of everything. So, I write of courage not because I have not known fear, but I write of courage because I have walked with fear but I have made the choice not to fear it.
C. JoyBell C.
I am my own biggest critic. Before anyone else has criticized me, I have already criticized myself. But for the rest of my life, I am going to be with me and I don't want to spend my life with someone who is always critical. So I am going to stop being my own critic. It's high time that I accept all the great things about me.
C. JoyBell C.
I tell people not to be afraid of their fears; because their fears are not there to scare them, they're there to let them know that something is worth it. Yet I am often afraid. I guess that means in my life, lots of things have been worth it!
C. JoyBell C.
In case you never get a second chance: don't be afraid! And what if you do get a second chance? You take it!
C. JoyBell C.
To know a species, look at its fears. To know yourself, look at your fears. Fear in itself is not important, but fear stands there and points you in the direction of things that are important. Don't be afraid of your fears, they're not there to scare you; they're there to let you know that something is worth it.
Caitlín R. Kiernan
What makes us brave isn't lacking the good sense to be afraid; it's looking back at what we've lived through and seeing if we faced it well.
Carlos Ruiz Zafón
Don't be afraid of being scared. To be afraid is a sign of common sense. Only complete idiots are not afraid of anything.
Christopher Hitchens
Since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, historians have become both more accurate and more honest
Christopher Paolini
If you don't make a few ememies now and then, you're a coward-or worse. Besides, it as worth it to see his reaction. Oh, he was angry!- Angela to Eragon
Christopher Paolini
Without fear there cannot be courage.
Chuck Palahniuk
Therefore, when we neglect to fear such a brittle monstrosity, we render it powerless.
The wise never doubt. The Humane never worry. The brave never fear.
Corey Aaron Burkes
Bravery is a willing decision to do what must be done. Fear is a cancer that is cured only by doing what must be done, backed by an intelligent, open mind.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
Bravery is not found in getting knocked down. Rather, bravery is found is getting back up knowing that you're going to get knocked down again.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
If I am sufficiently brave to extract the cancer of fear, I have effectively gutted my conviction that what stands before me is impossible.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
Risk is the clue that our dreams are both real and great.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
The restless adventurer within me stands eye-to-eye with the fear that has stepped directly in my path. And the thing I absolutely must not do is to blink first.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
If I am brave enough to stand against those who have been groomed by fear, I will recognize that where I get knocked down is all about where life begins, and has nothing to do with where it ends.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
Any dream that I am absolutely confident I can achieve should immediately be discarded for the simple reason that it is simply too small.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
To 'pretend' is to say that I'm willing to waste the precious energy that it takes to pretend, and I'm unwilling to cultivate the bravery that it takes to be real. And I am at a complete loss to pretend that either of these aren't true.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
It's not about inviting great things into our lives. Rather, it's about accepting the invitation of great things to step out of our lives.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
Faith is rare because fear is rampant. For faith will demand that I step into places that fear itself fears to go.
Criss Jami
Knowing the truth is so minuscule compared to having the nerve to say it...and even more to live it.
Criss Jami
You can't be a rebel without the scars that come with it. Truth is, some days scars are just as ugly as they are beautiful.
Criss Jami
If you're waiting until you feel talented enough to make it, you'll never make it.
Criss Jami
Oh I know it's cliché but yeah they say that great men make it in-To places few others who even do take the risk've ever been
Criss Jami
Christians sometimes make themselves into elephants afraid of mice. You have the Creator of the universe on your side; not to mention, you've been given eternal life. 'Whom or what shall you fear?' To be afraid of anything other than God himself is like an insult to God.
Criss Jami
Speaking a painful truth should be done only in love - like wielding a sword with no hilt - it should pain oneself in direct proportion to the amount of force exerted.
Criss Jami
Have nuts and be nuts.
Criss Jami
Who you are in public is a test of your conviction; who you are in private, integrity.
Dana Arcuri
There is something magical and transformational about saying yes to God. When you take His hand, step out of that boat (your ordinary, comfortable life), and be brave. Instead of spending your lifetime living in fear and playing it safe, you boldly walk in obedience. God makes you brave.
David Gemmell
There's no shame in fear. But understand this - the coward is ruled by fear, while the hero rides it like a wild stallion.
David Gemmell
Heroes are people who face down their fears. It is that simple. A child afraid of the dark who one day blows out the candle; a women terrified of the pain of childbirth who says, 'It is time to become a mother'. Heroism does not always live on the battlefield.
David Levithan
I find my greatest strength in wanting to be strong and my greatest bravery in deciding to be brave....If there's no feeling of fear then there's no need for courage.
Diana Wynne Jones
So you were going to rescue the Prince! Why did you pretend to run away? To deceive the Witch?Not likely! I'm a coward. Only way I can do something this frightening is to tell myself I'm not doing it!
Dianna Hardy
The thought of talking about it made Pueblo's gut ache, but then he thought of everything that Amy had been through
Donna Lynn Hope
Bravery is the ability to endure, even unto death, all types of terrible, terrifying and painful situations and we live in a time when people do all that they can to avoid hardship and pain, never realizing that strength and courage is found in both.
Douglas Adams
But unless we determine to take action,' said the old man querulously, as if struggling against something deeply insouciant in his nature, 'then we shall all be destroyed, we shall all die. Surely we care about that?' 'Not enough to want to get killed over it,' said Ford.
Drew Barrymore
If you don't take risks, you'll have a wasted soul.
E.A. Bucchianeri
It's not unpatriotic to denounce an injustice committed on our behalf, perhaps it's the most patriotic thing we can do.
Edward Abbey
I would not sacrifice a single living mesquite tree for any book ever written. One square mile of living desert is worth a hundred 'great books' - and one brave deed is worth a thousand.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, and from motives of policy are silent when we should speak, the divine floods of light and life no longer flow into our souls.
Emily Dickinson
We never know how high we areTill we are called to rise;And then, if we are true to plan,Our statures touch the skies.The heroism we reciteWould be a daily thing,Did not ourselves the cubits warpFor fear to be a king.
Emily Dickinson
Bless God, he went as soldiers,His musket on his breast

Smiling at death seems like a pretty bold act. And so I smile like a damned fool.

Emma Winters
Brave the skeletons, darling.
Eric Smith
Be fearless. Be bold. Be Magic.
Erma Bombeck
It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else.
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Accept it as it is and be true to yourself, the real answer is in you. It is about saying no to whom and what no is due and saying yes to whom and what yes is due! A simple solution to most of the problems of mankind today is just Yes and No!
Ernesto Che Guevara
We cannot be sure of having something to live for unless we are willing to die for it.
George R.R. Martin
Bran thought about it. 'Can a man still be brave if he's afraid?''That is the only time a man can be brave,' his father told him.
George R.R. Martin
Robb says the man died bravely, but Jon says he was afraid.What do you think? his father asked.Bran thought about it. can a man still be brave if he's afraid?That is the only time a man can be brave, his father told him.
George R.R. Martin
Fear cuts deeper than swords.
Gerald Morris
Brave? Or stupid?Roger shrugged. I've never been quite sure where brave stopped and stupid began, myself.
Geraldine Brooks
Who is the brave man--he who feels no fear? If so, then bravery is but a polite term for a mind devoid of rationality and imagination.
Giharu Si Perempuan Gunung
Needs pain and time to crystallized a bravery in the soul of human
Gwenda Bond
Courage doesn't mean never being afraid. We're all afraid sometimes. Bravery means doing the right thing anyway. That's true strength.
Hannah Brencher
Finally, finally, this is what bravery looks like. This is what courage looks like. It has nothing to do with dominating the day, every single day. It has to do with showing up and speaking truth. One true sentence after one true sentence.
Henryk Sienkiewicz
Prophet,' he said, 'Your doctrines I do not know; therefore if I accepted them, I would do it out of fear like a coward and a base man. Are you anxious that your faith be professed by cowards and base people?
Hideaki Anno
I musn't run away.
Hubert Haddad
Let's not be afraid...there is always a step after the last step.
Isaac Asimov
It has been my philosophy of life that difficulties vanish when faced boldly.
Isabelle Eberhardt
For those who know the value of and exquisite taste of solitary freedom (for one is only free when alone), the act of leaving is the bravest and most beautiful of all.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders are optimistic. When you walk with leaders, the spirit of hope will ramble around you and you will feel like yes, I can break barriers with few blows.
Israelmore Ayivor
Leaders face battles. They don't run away from troubles.
Israelmore Ayivor
The essence of adversity is to show us the real brave people who can withstand it.
Israelmore Ayivor
The courageous attitude of a leader awakens the dormant attitude of followers. The dormant attitude of a leader weakens the passionate attitude of followers. Leadership determines everything.
Israelmore Ayivor
Everyone appears to be courageous until bad weathers arrive, and then we know the true leaders.
Israelmore Ayivor
When dark situations arise, it is opportunity for you to reveal the leader in you. Rise and deal with them.
Israelmore Ayivor
What differentiates victors and victims are visions and vigor. Victims won't get the vim to step out of their situations.
Israelmore Ayivor
People who run away from challenges are cowards and no coward deserves a reward.
J.K. Rowling
Harry - you're a great wizard, you know. I'm not as good as you, said Harry, very embarrassed, as she let go of him.Me! said Hermione. Books! And cleverness! There are more important things - friendship and bravery and - oh Harry - be careful!
James Clemens
But often life asks much of you, and you either honor life by answering with all your heart, or you cower your way into your grave.
Jasleen Kaur Gumber
Hanging conversations,uncertain observations,incomplete imaginations.Unsent text messages,unreplied mails,undecided calls,unattended places.Unsettled pledges,distant searches.Some underutilized wages,some unseen dreams,sitting on dried leaves,believing the unbelieved…bidding adieu,to the accepted,how much she wanted todo,what was,detested!
Jennifer Ryan
Perhaps there is something good that had come from this war: everything has been turned around, all the unfairness made grimly plain. It has given us everyday women a voice - dared us to stand up for ourselves, and to stand up for others. We have less to lose in this world of chaos and death, after all.
Jessica Sorensen
But no matter what happens, I spoke up, made a voice for myself, freed from the haunting memories that have owned me for the last six years. I found my courage.
Jill Williamson
Only when life is quiet, Empress, Oli said. When the battle comes our way or we see a need, we will pick up our swords and fight beside the bravest of men, even knowing we may fall. But once all is well again... that's when the darkness comes. Then we sit in silence and struggle to grasp our peace the best we can.
Jim Morrison
Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.
John Kramer
It was no accident that one of the first things God asked of Adam was for him to name the animals he saw around him. Why do you suppose God asked man to do that? Because once you have a name, you have the beginning of understanding, and once you have understanding, you lose fear. God didn't want man to be fearful. He wanted man to be brave.
John Quincy Adams
Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air.
John Steinbeck
A kind of light spread out from her. And everything changed color. And the world opened out. And a day was good to awaken to. And there were no limits to anything. And the people of the world were good and handsome. And I was not afraid any more.
Kamand Kojouri
You have already lost if you are always fearful of losing everything.
Kate Forsyth
I'm not brave,' Ava replied huskily. 'If you only knew how afraid I really am. Sometimes I think I am afraid of everything.' 'But isn't that what being brave is all about? Being afraid, but doing it anyway?
Kelly Epperson
It's okay to be crazy and scared and brave at the same time!
Koushun Takami
They tried to believe in their classmates. They must have believed that if we could all get together, then we might end up being saved. We should commend them for that. We couldn't do that.
Kristin Hannah
It is nearly impossible.''Nearly impossible and impossible are not the same thing.
Krystal Sutherland
She'd passed the fear barrier, and she'd lived, and she'd discovered not certain death, as she'd imagined, but impossible splendor. What other beautiful things had fear been hiding from her? What else had the curse long kept her from discovering? For the first time in a long time, she wanted to find out.
Lana Del Rey
Being brave means that knowing when you fail, you won't fail forever.
Lawrence Hill
I had chosen freedom, with all its insecurities, and nothing in the world would make me turn away from it.
Leon Uris
Today a great shot for freedom was heard. I think it stands a chance of being heard forever. It marls a turning point in the history of the Jewish people. The beginning of the return to a statues of dignity we have not known for two thousand years. Yes, today was the first step back. My battle is done. Now I turn the command over to the soldiers.
Lisa Scottoline
If you can't be brave, be determined. And you'll end up in the same place.
Liz Newman
I have found that happiness is a defiant act of bravery in spite of a callous world.
Lois Lowry
That's all that brave means - not thinking about the dangers. Just thinking about what you must do. Of course you were frightened. I was too, today. But you kept your mind on what you had to do.
Lolly Daskal
Where we fall are the stepping-stones for our journey.
M.E. Thomas
One nurse thought I was brave. I think she was talking about my steely-eyed, grin-and-bear-it kind of attitude. There were no tears, no complaints from me - a total lack of affect. In a victim, it is courage and thus admirable; in a predator, it is a lack of humanity and instills fear.
M.F. Moonzajer
Only a coward carries a gun, a brave person never needs a gun.
M.N. O’Brien
If a person cannot swim across the river, he must take the bridge. He is not afraid of the water or worried that he may drown. But he takes the bridge out of necessity. It is a fact. To fear or worry over necessities (over facts), stills the mind. The stagnant mind only focuses and refocuses on a single point, without peripheral vision
Madeleine George
Once, Fran says, settling against the worktable, folding her arms, I knew this kid who very bravely and bossily came out of the closet when she was only fourteen years old. She told me then that we can't choose who we love. We just love the people we love, no mattter what anyone else might want for us. Wasn't that you?
To be brave is to love someone unconditionally, without expecting anything in return. To just give. That takes courage, because we don't want to fall on our faces or leave ourselves open to hurt.
Mahatma Gandhi
Let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day:- I shall not fear anyone on Earth. - I shall fear only God. - I shall not bear ill will toward anyone. - I shall not submit to injustice from anyone. - I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering.
Mandy Hale
It's OKAY to be scared. Being scared means you're about to do something really, really brave.
Margaret George
You must bear losses like a soldier, the voice told me, bravely and without complaint, and just when the day seems lost, grab your shield for another stand, another thrust forward. That is the juncture that separates heroes from the merely strong.
Marguerite Bennett
We were taught to be good, and we were taught to be careful. But in this world, sometimes, I do not think we can be the two at once.
Marilyn Manson
Find what you are afraid of, face it, and then you won't be afraid of it anymore.
Mark Twain
To believe yourself brave is to be brave; it is the one only essential thing.
Mark Twain
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.
Martha Brockenbrough
Life is a temporary condition, Henry. And it's uncertain. That's why you have to seize chances when you find them. Pursue what you want. Take risks. Live, love...all of it. Every last one of us is going to die, but if we don't live as we truly want, if we're not with the one we want to be with, we're dead already.
Martina Boone
Pushing through fear was what eventually set you free.
Mary Tyler Moore
You can't be brave if you've only had wonderful things happen to you.
Matthew Dicks
You have to be the bravest person in the world to go out every day, being yourself when no one likes who you are.
Meg Cabot
Being brave is when you have to do something because you know it is right, but at the same time, you are afraid to do it, because it might hurt or whatever. But you do it anyway.
Meg Wolitzer
I think having the knowledge, plus the experiences you've lived through, make you definitely not fragile. They make you brave.
Melody Lee
Her eyes, full of ancient, sacred wisdom. Her bones, deposits of inherited bravery. She is a proud descendant of strong, courageous women who went to the stakes fighting for their truths.
Michel de Montaigne
Antigonus, having taken one of his soldiers into a great degree of favor and esteem for his valor, gave his physicians strict charge to cure him of a long and inward disease under which he had a great while languished, and observing that, after his cure, he went much more coldly to work than before, he asked him what had so altered and cowed him: Yourself, sir, replied the other, by having eased me of the pains that made me weary of my life.
Mike Norton
So long as we are brave enough to accept the consequences of our actions, no one can take away our freedom of choice.
Mindy Kaling need the tiniest bit of bravery. People get scared when you try to do something, especially when it looks like you're succeeding. People do not get scared when you are failing. It calms them. That's why the show Intervention is a hit and everyone loves worrying about Amanda Bynes.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Plants are more courageous than almost all human beings: an orange tree would rather die than produce lemons, whereas instead of dying the average person would rather be someone they are not.
N.R. Hart
Sometimes the bravest thing you can do is let someone love you.
Natalie Lloyd
Sometimes even doing the right thing will leave you with scars. But beauty comes from ashes, too. And I know that to be true.
Nawal El-Saadawi
How is it possible to live? Life is so hard?''You must be harder than life, Firdaus. Life is very hard. The only people who really live are those who are harder than life itself.''But you are not hard, Sharifa, so how do you manage to live?''I am hard, terribly hard, Firdaus.''No, you are gentle and soft.''My skin is soft, but my heart is cruel, and my bite deadly.''Like a snake?''Yes, exactly like a snake. Life is a snake. They are the same, Firdaus. If the snake realises you are not a snake, it will bite you. And if life knows you have no sting, it will devour you.

Neal Stephenson
We're not hunter-gatherers anymore. We're all living like patients in the intensive care unit of a hospital. What keeps us alive isn't bravery, or athleticism, or any of those other skills that were valuable in a caveman society. It's our ability to master complex technological skills. It is our ability to be nerds. We need to breed nerds.
Neil Gaiman
Being brave doesn't mean you're not scared.
Nelson Mandela
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.
Oprah Winfrey
The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.
Oscar Wilde
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

There is a great difference between being fearless and being brave.
Paulo Coelho
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.
Peter Bunzl
No one conquers fear easily, Robert. It takes a brave heart to win great battles.

In the aftermath, we are because they were.
Rachel L. Schade
We will not die cornered and cowering in the ruins of a dead city.
Rachel L. Schade
And when hope returns to us, it will be with a passion and power to match every ounce of this crushing despair and pain, every fiery shred of determination that carried us when hope failed. It will claim us with a courage that will make the goddess herself quake and doubt herself.
Ranata Suzuki
When you experience loss, people say you'll move through the 5 stages of grief….Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance….. What they don't tell you is that you'll cycle through them all every day.
Ranata Suzuki
She wears it so beautifully doesn't she, her pain… Always smiling, always positive…. always happy to help… It's like a garment perfectly tailored to fit the way she carries it… with a touch of grace… and the quietness of that sad smile…. All so you'd never know how heavy it really was.
Ranata Suzuki
I need to stop running back to you in my mind all the time.
Ranata Suzuki
It's funny how we say a person 'made' us when they actually broke us.Sort of like how I say 'funny'... but I actually mean sad.

With you in my life I felt like I could conquer anything.It was as if I was on top of the world and even the stars themselves were just within my grasp.But without you …. even getting through the day is hard.
Richelle E. Goodrich
I don't so much mind looking back on having lost the election, or having been denied a role in the play, or having had my novel repeatedly rejected, or having been turned down for a date, or recalling laughter at my expense when I attempted some silly challenge.  Those things simply prove that I lived life.  What I do mind, however, is looking back on the lost opportunities where imagined concerns kept me from even trying
Richelle E. Goodrich
Courage to me is doing something daring, no matter how afraid, insecure, intimidated, alone, unworthy, incapable, ridiculed or whatever other paralyzing emotion you might feel. Courage is taking matter what. So you're afraid? Be afraid. Be scared silly to the point you're trembling and nauseous, but do it anyway!

My point is that love is the most powerful motivator in the world. It spurs mortals to greatness. Their noblest, bravest acts are done for love.
Rick Riordan
She'd also called me brave...unless she was talking to the catfish.

Yet I now ask of you
Robert Jordan
Does it make you brave to stick your hand in a bear's mouth? Would you do it again just because you didn't die?
Robert Liparulo
Bravery is not the absence of fear but the forging ahead despite being afraid
Roman Payne
What is a Wanderess? Bound by no boundaries, contained by no countries, tamed by no time, she is the force of nature's course.
Roman Payne
He was no god, just an artist; and when an artist is a man, he needs a woman to create like a god.
