Courage is the virtue that separates the exceptional from the average. It is of the utmost necessity to develop courage in your life because without it, you will be subject to the will of those who have it.
Why You Need to Be Brave
Being kind and intelligent is great but without courage, your kindness and intelligence will not find a path of expression. Courage is the ability to confront your fear with grace. Grace under pressure will set you apart from the average man. The reason for the necessity of courage is, unfortunately, the reality of evil. There are men who are intelligent and BAD and courageous, and these men are villains in the world; men who are capable of tricking and stealing and hurting people. There is only one type of man who can stop the Strong Bad Man and that is the Strong Good Man. A good man who lacks the courage to put himself at risk to fight the bad man is useless.
