    The dictionary definition of courage as per the Oxford English Dictionary is ‘the ability to do something that frightens one’, but is it really that simple? Courage is often portrayed as physical bravery in books and movies which see the hero making a sacrifice for the greater good. However, courage can be more than a physical act.

    Courage to care

    After reading The Courage To Care I believe that Odette Meyers quote “I do think that good people, simple people are much more complicated than evil people, which is one reason perhaps why we do not bother with them so much.” is true for just about all of the rescuers. If these people were evil, they would have never found the courage to help out so many people. In my opinion, evil people are cowards acting out for attention. Normal, simple people are the human beings with the biggest hearts, most

    The Definition of Courage The current dictionary definitions of courage are inadequate because they only include references to physical courage and omit instances of inner strength.  Three contemporary dictionaries agree closely on the definition although they differ in the order of importance. Webster's New World Dictionary describes courage as "an attitude of facing and dealing with anything recognized as dangerous, difficult or painful, instead of withdrawing from it," and The American

    What is Courage? What is courage? Is it the ability to prove yourself in war? Or the strength it takes to decide you will not fight?

    • 3 Pages

    The problem with the definitions of courage that we covered through the course of this semester is that they are very narrow yet the basic definitions are too broad.
