A Quote by Clarence Seward Darrow on moral courage and bravery

Common experience shows how much rarer is moral courage than physical bravery.  A thousand men will march to the mouth of the cannon where one man will dare espouse an unpopular cause. 

Clarence Darrow (1857 - 1938)

It is better by noble boldness to run the risk of being subject to half the evils we anticipate than to remain in cowardly listlessness for fear of what might happen.

A Quote by Cheri Huber on fear, demystify, unafraid, illusion, fearless, courage, bravery, cheri huber, fear book, overcome, face, conquer, courageous, and inspiration

Fear forces us to spend our lives dealing with it, ostensibly to overcome it. But that is a trick. Only fear (the illusion of separation) would want us to work to be unafraid, precisely because it is not possible for a separate self to be unafraid!

A Quote by Cheri Huber on fear, demystify, unafraid, illusion, fearless, courage, bravery, cheri huber, fear book, overcome, face, conquer, courageous, and inspiration

Fear is not what you think it is. Fear is not who you are underneath your facade. Fear is not the real you that you must somehow fix or improve or overcome. Fear is a very useful signal along the path to freedom. The stronger the fear, the closer you are to what you are seeking. If you want to stay "safe (i.e. stuck where you are), fear tells you to stop what you are doing, But if you want to be free, fear lets you know you are on the right track, it is a signal to push ahead in the same direction, to pick up the pace.

"Do something you fear, NOT to conquer the fear, NOT to accomplish a task, but to familiarize yourself with the processes with which fear protects itself, to demystify it." ~ Cheri Huber, The Fear Book ~

When we come to that compassionate awareness that is not afraid of the fear, that can embrace the fear, we are able to heal the wounds of the child and the adult and begin to live the lives we've always wanted to live.

Real suffering bravely born melts even a heart of stone. Such is the potency of suffering... there lies the key to Satyagraha.

A Quote by Vidyadhara Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche on warriorship, bravery, and changing the world

The essence of warriorship, or the essence of human bravery, is refusing to give up on anyone or anything. We can never say that we are simply falling to pieces or that anyone else is, and  we can never say that about the world either. Within our lifetime there will be great problems in the world, but let us make sure than within our lifetime do disasters happen.  We can prevent them.  It is up to us.
