Paula Giddings

Napoleon Bonaparte

"Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed immaturity. Immaturity is the inability to use one's understanding without guidance from another. This immaturity is self-imposed when its cause lies not in the lack of understanding, but in the lack of resolve and courage to use it without guidance from another. Have courage to use your own understanding!"
Immanuel Kant



"Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Personal mastery teaches us to choose. Choosing is a courageous act: picking the results and actions which you will make into your destiny."
Peter Senge

"History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats."
B. C. Forbes

"The way to develop the best that is in a man is by appreciation and encouragement."
Charles Schwab

"Note how good you feel after you have encouraged someone else. No other argument is necessary to suggest that never miss the opportunity to give encouragement."
George Adams



"Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you."
William Arthur Ward

"That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise."
Abraham Lincoln

"Any man's life will be filled with constant and unexpected encouragement if he makes up his mind to do his level best each day."
Booker T. Washington

"Whatever enlarges hope will also exalt courage."
Samuel Johnson

"The bravest thing you can do when you are not brave is to profess courage and act accordingly."
Corra Harris

"We must believe in ourselves or no one else will believe in us; we must match our aspirations with the competence, courage and determination to succeed."
Rosalyn Sussman

"Pain nourishes courage. You can't be brave if you've only had wonderful things happen to you."
Mary Tyler Moore

"You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do."
Eleanor Roosevelt
