Courage is...

A characteristic strongly linked with the heart is courage, its long associations confirmed by the root of the word, ‘cor’, Latin for heart.

Original meanings of courage centre around ‘that which lies within one’s heart’ - innermost feelings, as well as thoughts and mind-set. A little later in history, however, the word courage was also used to describe the state of mind which enables one to meet danger without fear, the meaning we’re familiar with today.

Bringing the two meanings of courage together creates a form of bravery I would describe as this: courage is having the bravery to commit to our inner truth, following where the heart leads, whatever difficulties may arise.
