Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear. Except a creature be part coward, it is not a compliment to say it is brave.
Courage is the ability to act in the presence of fear.
Cowardliness is the unwillingness to act knowing the width and breath of a danger.
Wonderful statement. So true.
Have you been reading my book…
I haven’t, but perhaps Mark Twain has.
Excellent, hopefully he’ll enjoy some neuroscience to support his intuition….
It is not brave to do something you’re not afraid of. Courage is being terrified and following through anyway.
