Famous quotes containing the word courage:
“America is neither free nor brave, but a land of tight, iron- clanking little wills, everybody trying to put it over everybody else, and a land of men absolutely devoid of the real courage of trust, trust in lifes sacred spontaneity. They cant trust life until they can control it.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
