Some courage quotes include Winston Churchill's quote "Courage is rightly esteemed the first of human qualities because it is the quality which guarantees all others" and Eddie Rickenbacker's quote that courage requires fear. Another courage quote is Teddy Roosevelt's quote that greatness comes from courage.
Eddie Rickenbacker said "Courage is doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared." Rickenbacker was a World War I hero. Churchill also distinguished between courage and success. Churchill said "Courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm."
Similarly, U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt said that an easy life is not worth living. Roosevelt said greatness requires daring. He said "we must realize that greatness is the fruit of toil and sacrifice and high courage." Roosevelt called on Americans to strive mightily to wear out in the end, rather than metaphorically rust.
