Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Readers may respond by either commenting on the quotes I put forward or contributing a quote of their own. I'll include a linky list, or you can just respond in the comments.

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

This week's theme is COURAGE!

"Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point." --C.S. Lewis
"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage." --Anais Nin

"Bran thought about it. 'Can a man still be brave if he's afraid?'
'That's the only time a man can be brave,' his father told him." --George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones
Courage is looking fear right in the eye and saying, "Get the hell out of my way, I've got things to do." --Unknown Author
"It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends." --Dumbledore, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

What do you think of these? Which is your favorite? Do you have a favorite quote about courage?
