Someone once said: “ I had rather die on my feet than live on my knees.”
Yet sadly enough, many of us seem to fall to our negative knees.
Courage is that one great ingredient
Which the mediocre man lacks to climb a steep gradient.
Most men are controlled by small and petty circumstances.
Fear and hopelessness will ruin their chances.
Lacking self-esteem, they let the mob hold them sway,
And then comes the wave, which will sweep them away.
A coward stands tall when prompted by the mob
He’s brave, and even set to rob.
But when left alone to stand by himself
That’s when he begins to fear like hell.
Courage is the most beautiful of all human ways.
It’s when to “act in the face of fear” really pays.
We are naturally afraid for most of the time
But courage can take you to levels sublime.
Strength, Honour & Courage
Courage divides the weak from the strong.
It separates the one from the throng.
It distinguishes front runners from those in the rear
Defining the great from those who know fear.
