I did the homework.

Ambrose Redmoon is the author according to this web site: http://www.quotegarden.com/courage.html

You should always cite the source whenever possible.

Here's some other quotes about courage:

Courage is reckoned the greatest of all virtues; because, unless a man has that virtue, he has no security for preserving any other. ~Samuel Johnson

Every man has his own courage, and is betrayed because he seeks in himself the courage of other persons. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson


Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. ~Winston Churchill


Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow. ~Mary Anne Radmacher


It is curious that physical courage should be so common in the world and moral courage so rare. ~Mark Twain


People are made of flesh and blood and a miracle fibre called courage. ~Mignon McLaughlin, The Neurotic's Notebook, 1960
