Courage

  • Hindu – Bhagavadgita 18:46

By worshipping Him through the performance of his own duty does man attain perfection. Better is one’s own law though imperfectly carried out, than the law of another carried out perfectly. One does not incur sin when one does the duty ordained by one’s own nature. One should not give up the work suited to one’s nature, O son of Kunti, though it may be defective, for all enterprises are clouded by defects as fire by smoke.

  • Buddhist – Milarepa’s Temptations in Solitude
By compassion I subdue the demons; All blame I scatter to the wind, And upward turn my face.
  • Zoroastrian – Yasts 2 – IV
Thus spake Zarathustra:
Reveal unto me that Name of Thine O Thou Ahura Mazda!
Ahura Mazda replying, said unto him:
My name is the One of Whom questions are asked. O Holy Zarathustra!
  • Jewish – Psalms 23

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

  • Christian – John 3:8
The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit.
  • Islamic – 8:43
Remember in thy dream Allah showed them to thee as few: if He had shown them to thee as many, ye would surely have been discouraged, and ye would surely have disputed in (your) decision; but Allah saved (you): for He knoweth well the (secrets) of (all) hearts.
  • Sufi – Gayan – Sura
Blessed are they who patiently strive in the cause of truth and do not weary.
