“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.” ― Atticus Finch
“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.” ― Coco Chanel
Clearly, I could talk forever and a day about courage, and lots of people have already spoken their piece about it.
But I don’t want to go on and on, ad infinitum without hearing from you!
I want to know how you define courage.
I enjoy blogging because of the continuous feedback loops. It’s a social medium meant to connect and engage people in dynamic dialogue.
So, leave a comment with your definition of courage.
Your definition may be short or long; descriptive, narrative, or expository; a personal example or an intellectual philosophy.
You can quote others or write a poem.
Feel free to post more than one.
I’ll also be asking the same question of Facebook and Twitter, so you can read what others have to say on those networks as well.
You can tweet to @SLWrites or post to my Facebook page.
You can attach appropriate (PG) images or links to relevant content.
Like, retweet, or reply to other definitions that appreciate.
Do what you feel as long as you answer the question:
How do you define courage?
I’ll be doing a follow up post compiling all of the favorite quotes. Come back to see what’s made the list.
