Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Pinterest Email Courage isn’t a brilliant dash,A daring deed in a moment’s flash;It isn’t an instantaneous thingBorn of despair with a sudden springIt isn’t a creature of flickered hopeOr the final tug at a slipping rope;But it’s something deep in the soul of manThat is working always to serve some plan. Courage isn’t the last resortIn the work of life or the game of sport;It isn’t a thing that a man can callAt some future time when he’s apt to fall;If he hasn’t it now, he will have it notWhen the strain is great and the pace is hot.For who would strive for a distant goalMust always have courage within his soul.Courage isn’t a dazzling lightThat flashes and passes away from sight;It’s a slow, unwavering, ingrained traitWith the patience to work and the strength to wait.It’s part of a man when his skies are blue,It’s part of him when he has work to do.The brave man never is freed of it.He has it when there is no need of it.Courage was never designed for show;It isn’t a thing that can come and go;It’s written in victory and defeatAnd every trial a man may meet.It’s part of his hours, his days and his years,Back of his smiles and behind his tears.Courage is more than a daring deed:It’s the breath of life and a strong man’s creed. 0 Lanre Dahunsi Lifelong Learner | Entrepreneur | Digital Strategist at Reputiva LLC | Marathoner | Bibliophile -firstname.lastname@example.org Prev Post Quotable Quotes from The 5 AM Club by Robin Sharma.
