Courage is mental and moral strength to venture, persevere, and withstand danger, fear or difficulty. It is the firmness of mind and will in the face of danger or extreme difficulty. It suggests an ingrained capacity for meeting strain with fortitude and resilience. A person who is mentally and physically strong, is normally found to be courageous.
Courage is of two kinds: physical and moral. Physical courage depends upon one's physical strength. A weak person is rarely physically courageous. But the beasts are sometimes seen to be physically courageous. Physical courage is needed in the event of any danger for bringing immediate relief or protection to the victim, as in the case of fire or war.
Moral courage belongs to an honest person. Even a physically weak person can have moral courage. It is really rare and found in one in a million. A person possessing physical courage may be able to save a victim from drowning or burning, by jumping courageously into the scene of accident.
But there are a few in the society to verbally protest against unfair or unjust deeds they come across. A person of moral courage is not a coward. He always revolts against injustice and wrong-doings.
Moral courage comes from conviction and purity of character. A person of moral courage sticks to his own principles, and does not compromise with evil forces. He is ready to sacrifice any kind of self-interest for his moral character.....
