321 Quote Me: Courage

The lovely Rory, a guy called bloke has very kindly tagged me for this quote challenge; if you don’t know Rory, he’s a super guy and I know he’d love to meet you so why not pop over and say hello!

I chose the quote “Courage doesn’t always roar, sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying “I will try again tomorrow” because I think that people tend to associate the word ‘courage’ with heroes; people who are almost super human. However, for me at least, courage is often quiet and unassuming; it is people who have, seemingly, insurmountable problems but still manage, somehow to find a smile or a word of encouragement for someone else. It is all too easy to give in to our problems and the challenges that life throws at us, it take courage to stand up and say ‘this is not going to beat me’.

The second quote I’ve chosen is this one:

321 quote me courage 1 Simply because I believe that our society is being irreparably damaged by ‘mob mentality’ which is being driven by a desire to conform. It seems as though people, especially on social media, will add their sheep like bleats to abhorrent commentaries just to be seen to be conforming to the latest politically correct trends. I have far more respect for someone who will stand alone but makes his point nevertheless than someone who repeats the opinions of others without real understanding or a genuine belief.

I now have to nominate 3 bloggers to take up this challenge and I’ve chosen:

Darren The Arty Plantsman

Billy at Good to be Alive Today

Brian who resides at Bonnywood Manor

If anyone else would like to have a go please feel free, I think this is a great prompt for a quote challenge!

Have a super day one and all

    Ooo this is a good one and I agree, it’s far too easy to conform and go with the expectations of society, but it takes courage to stand against the tide, to go your own way, to not be a sheep blindly following. Great quote! x

    I was told I had a lot of courage just making it through each day for all that time.
    Is courage just putting one foot in front of the other? And coming out intact at the end of the day?
