Sunday Dinner: Living With Courage


“You never know what’s around the corner.

It could be everything. Or it could be nothing.

You keep putting one foot in front of the other,

and then one day you look back

and you’ve climbed a mountain.”


Tom Hiddleston



“Courage doesn’t always roar.

Sometimes courage is the little voice

at the end of the day that says

I’ll try again tomorrow.”


Mary Anne Radmacher



“Continuous effort –

not strength or intelligence –

is the key to unlocking our potential.”


Winston S. Churchill



“Real courage

is when you know you’re licked before you begin,

but you begin anyway

and see it through no matter what.”


Harper Lee



“Courage is not having the strength to go on;

it is going on when you don’t have the strength.”


Teddy Roosevelt



“Most of the important things in the world

have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying

when there seemed to be no hope at all.”


Dale Carnegie

“My own heroes are the dreamers,

those men and women who tried to make the world a better place

than when they found it,

whether in small ways or great ones.

Some succeeded, some failed,

most had mixed results…

but it is the effort that’s heroic, as I see it.

Win or lose, I admire those who fight the good fight.”


George R.R. Martin



“It’s probably my job to tell you life isn’t fair,

but I figure you already know that.

So instead, I’ll tell you that hope is precious,

and you’re right not to give up.”


C.J. Redwine
