Positive Thoughts: It Takes Courage

From Positive Thoughts, May 30, 2015

  • It takes courage to refrain from gossip when others delight in it – to stand up for the absent person who is being abused.
  • It takes courage to live honestly within your means, and not dishonestly on the means of others.
  • It takes courage to be a REAL man or a TRUE woman, to hold fast to your ideals when it causes you to be looked upon as strange and peculiar.

  • It takes courage to be talked about and remain silent, when a word would justify you in the eyes of others, but which you dare not speak because it would injure another.
  • It takes courage to refuse to do something that is wrong although everyone else may be doing it with attitudes as carefree as a summer song.
  • It takes courage to live according to your own convictions, to deny yourself what you cannot afford, to love your neighbor as yourself!
  • It takes more courage to reveal insecurities than to hide them,
    more strength to relate to people than to dominate them,
    more “manhood” to abide by thought-out principles rather than blind reflex.
    Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles and an immature mind.Alex Karras Beautiful-background-wallpapers-12801007-high-definition
