Favorite Quotes: Courage


“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather
the judgement

that something else is more important than fear.”

  1. What a fantastic image and quote! May I post it on my website or blog with a link back to your site?


  2. I was really able to identify with that quote, and I loved the picture. 🙂

    The image says more than anything else !!


    • Becca Givens says:

      Yes it does, nimue! I held onto this image for a long time because I loved it … didn’t realize I would use it until I started searching for an image to accompany the quote! 🙂

    Love the photo, and it reminds me that sometimes courage can be foolish, as well. I read a novel many many years ago, in which one of the characters discusses who needs courage. The character decides that only cowards need courage because brave individuals have their bravery to lean upon. Went on to say that a courageous individual is the coward who fears stepping out, but does it anyway because its the right thing to do. All of that is to say, I firmly agree with the quote,

    Yea for the kitty! I have one next door just like this one…small but big on courage.


    • Becca Givens says:

      I have one – that is not afraid of anything or anyone – the very reason we brought him inside – he has “no sense!” LOL He wraps his paws around the lab and holds on for a ride or jaunt around the house! 🙂

      Thank you for stopping by ~~

    I love that quote Becca!
    Besides that long row of menacing dog teeth, little kitty decides to take an extra step of courage and get a few paws wet!

    I also see:

    Police Academy German Shepherds, being put to the Captains final test…..
