My top 10 quotes on courage

My number one quote on courage is the one by the American actress, Ruth Gordon: “Courage is like a muscle, it is strengthened by use”. We tend to classify very strictly between those who are courageous and those who are not. I go along with Ruth Gordon and inspire people to work constantly on their courage muscles. Keep training them regularly even if you only have time for a small workout. As far as I am concerned I don’t think that I was born with the courage gene. I feel a bit like a student of Courage learning and growing by trying bigger things than myself. I keep setting higher goals for myself. I keep asking myself: “What would I miss if I didn’t try?” “What would be the price I would have to pay?” These are the ways in which I strengthen my courage muscles.
