Courage Quotes -- Find the Lion Within You

By

Remember the cowardly lion in The Wizard of Oz? The concept completely overturned the typical belief that lions are brave. That unique and subtle message teaches us that no matter how great someone is, no matter how fearful they appear to be, they too are bound to have fear. Each one of us has our own set of fears that stop us from attaining our true potential. If you find that you lack the courage to take that little step forward, here are some courage quotes to motivate you. Maybe if the cowardly lion had read some of these courage quotes he would not have to go all the way to Oz to find courage.
