Martin Luther King Jr. Quotes on Courage

Courage is an inner resolution to go forward despite obstacles; Courage breeds creativity.

Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our souls when we look the other way.

Courageous men never lose the zest for living even though their life situation is zestless; cowardly men, overwhelmed by the uncertainties of life, lose the will to live.

We must constantly build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.

Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can’t ride you unless your back is bent.

If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps moving; you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today, I still have a dream.

Courage is the power of the mind to overcome fear.

Courage faces fear and thereby masters it.
