What is courage?


courage

Courage was when he decided

To stand up and run to win the race

To repeat a year after failing the exams

To believe in love even after being betrayed

To keep on applying for jobs after being rejected a hundred times

To live his life when he lost everything

Courage was when he decided

To not give up and accept his fate


Today, I read ones of the best quotes I’ve ever come across–

Life is like a boxing match, defeat is declared not when you fall but when you refuse to stand again.
