Courage

Courage is the force that creates history.

Courage is the force that makes our lives brilliant.

Courage, strength and wisdom well up in those who consciously take on everything as the protagonist and person responsible for achieving their goals. Unlimited wisdom and ardent resolve arise from a sense of responsibility.

If you summon your courage to challenge something, you’ll never be left with regret. How sad it is to spend your life wishing, “If only I’d had a little more courage.” Whatever the outcome may be, the important thing is to step forward on the path that you believe is right.

It takes courage to become happy―courage to remain true to one’s convictions, courage not to be defeated by one's weaknesses and negativity, courage to take swift action to help those who are suffering.

It’s important to have the courage to say what needs to be said at the crucial moment.

No matter how wonderful our dreams, how noble our ideals, or how high our hopes, ultimately we need courage to make them a reality. Without action, it’s as if they never existed.

No matter what our personal circumstances may be, if we ourselves become a source of light, then there will be no darkness in the world.

Running away from things you find unpleasant causes suffering. But facing and challenging such situations will enrich your life.

Small things matter. What may look like a small act of courage is courage nevertheless. The important thing is to be willing to take a step forward.

The biggest obstacles to our progress exist within our own lives in the form of cowardice and the tendency to give up. Breaking through these barriers will unleash a surging wave of change.

The courage not to bow to pressure, the courage to stand alone, the courage to maintain one’s determination, the courage to look deep into one’s heart and confront one’s own cowardice and arrogance, the courage to challenge difficulties―those who possess this kind of courage are true victors.

The important thing is to take that first step. Bravely overcoming one small fear gives you the courage to take on the next.

Those who lack courage run away from hardship, seeking only to live a life of ease and comfort. Consequently, those who lack courage cannot devote themselves to the happiness of others.

To be fearless no matter what happens―that is the root of true happiness. To move forward resolutely regardless of what lies in store―that is the spirit, the resolve, that leads to human victory.

True courage and adventure is found in exploring the meaning of life and discovering the reason for your existence. Even greater joy and fulfillment is found in the persistent struggle to contribute to others’ happiness.

Unless we take one step forward, we cannot take the next, much less a thousand.
