The Virtue of Courage

Posted by admin on June 27, 2009

How do you define courage?
According to, “Courage” is defined as “mental or moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear, or difficulty.”
This definition appears to be a reasonable and rational explanation to a word that in reality is redefined at every moment of our lives.  One person’s courage is another person’s routine.  One person’s courage could save the lives of thousands at the expense of their own.  Is sacrifice necessary to define courage?

Sometimes courage is simply opening your eyes.

It takes courage to get up in the morning and go to work every day.  It takes courage to change jobs.  It takes courage to further one’s education. It takes courage to ask for someone’s hand in marriage. Is the concept of courage so mundane as to be just an assumption?  We are all afraid of something at various times in our life.  At times, we are faced with huge obstacles.  Some of us do not even realize that- what they are doing at this very moment- takes great courage.

In reality, courage need not be defined nor measured.

Courage is being true to yourself right now.
