~ Quotations on "Blazes" ~


Orange Phoenix
Courage is nothing less that the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice,
while continuing to affirm inwardly that life, with all its sorrows, is good;
that everything is meaningful, even if in a sense beyond our understanding;
and that there is always tomorow.
Dorothy ThompsonLine with Phoenix
This is the art of courage:
To see things as they are and still believe
that the victory lies not with those who avoid the bad,
but those who taste, in living awareness, every drop of the good.
Victoria LincolnLine with Phoenix
The greatest test of courage on earth is to bear defeat without losing heart.
Robert G. IngersollLine with Phoenix
No man will succeed unless he is ready to face and overcome diffiultites,

but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face.
We must do that which we think we cannot.
Eleanor RooseveltLine with Phoenix

Courage is not the absence of fear and pain,
but the affirmation of life despite fear and pain.
Rabbi Earl GrollmanLine with Phoenix

James A. MichenerLine with Phoenix
Courage is a quiteness, not martial music made
Born of facing up to life, even when afraid.
Emily Sargent CouncilmanLine
Courage, contrary to popular belief, is not the absence of fear. Courage is the wisdom to act in spite of fear.
John-Roger and Peter McWilliamsLine

You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.

Napoleon ILine with Phoenix

Mignon McLaughlinLine with Phoenix
Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.
Maori proverbLine with Phoenix
Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is a little voice at the end of the day that says...
I'll try again tomorrow.
Line with Phoenix
Somewhere in time the truth shines through 
And the spirit knows what it has to do 
Somewhere in you there's a power with no name 
It can rise to meet the moment and burn like a flame 

And you can be stronger than anything you know 
Hold on to what you see 
Don't let it go 

Steve Winwood
From the movie "Balto"
Line with Phoenix
Courage is not the towering oak that sees storms come and go;
it is the fragile blossom that opens in the snow.
Alice M. SwaimLine with Phoenix
It isn't for the moment you are struck that you need courage,
but for the long uphill climb back to sanity and faith and security.
Anne Morrow LindberghLine
You never conquer a mountain.
Mountains can't be conquered;
you conquer yourself
your hopes, your fears.
Jim WhitakerLine with Phoenix
Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones;
and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily tasks,
go to sleep in peace.
God is awake.
Victor HugoLine with Phoenix
Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless in facing them.
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it.
Let me not look for allies in life's battlefield but to my own strength.
Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved but hope for the patience to win my freedom.
Grant me that I may not be a coward, feeling your mercy in my success alone;
But let me find the grasp of your hand in my failure.
Rabindranath TagoreLine with Phoenix
Obstacles cannot crush me;
every obstacle yields to stern resolve.
Leonardo Da VinciLine with Phoenix
Whatever course you decide upon,
there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong.

There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right.
To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.
Ralph Waldo EmersonLine with Phoenix
One must have the courage to say "no," even at the risk of displeasing others.

What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?
Vincent van GoghLine
Courage is the price that life exacts for granting peace.
The soul that knows it not, knows no release from little things;
Knows not the livid loneliness of fear;
Nor mountain heights where bitter joy can hear
The sound of wings.
Amelia EarhartLine with Phoenix
Sometimes even to live is an act of courage.
SenecaLine with Phoenix
The courage of life is often a less dramatic spectacle
than the courage of a final moment,

but it is no less a magnificent mixture of triumph and tragedy.
A man does what he must—in spite of personal consequences,
in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures
—and that is the basis of all morality.
John F. KennedyLine with Phoenix
Often the test of courage is not to die, but to live.
Conte Vittorio AlfieriLine with Phoenix
It takes courage to live—courage and strength and hope and humor.
Jerome P. Fleishman

Like the mighty phoenix,
Once again I rise from the flames set to destroy me & take flight.
I am
