Courage and bravery are qualities that manifest themselves not on battle-fields alone, for the simple reason that it are not only in battle-fields that we meet with danger and difficulties.
‘Cowards die many times before their deaths. The Valiant never taste of death but once’. In addition, the valiant, when they do taste of death, find it not bitter at all.
Surely, no person deserves to make his life miserable through imaginary evils; and yet that is just how most of the suffering in the world crops up.
The most decisive battles of the world have been won not through numbers, not through superior strength, but through courage and tact.
The sight of danger does raise any feeling of fear in a brave person. Courage and fear are both the feelings of the mind raised by surrounding circumstances and show in what relation we place ourselves to those circumstances. They are the test of the mind’s strength. Thus it is that a physically weak person is often brave, while a physically strong person is not infrequently a coward.
