321 Quote Me! — Courage

716F3134-1A3E-4D71-BAEA-C863A92593FAKristian, at Tales From the Mind of Kristian, tagged me for the 321 Quote Me! Challenge, where the topic is courage.

The rules for this challenge are:

  • Thank the Selector — Thanks Kristian.
  • Post 2 quotes for the dedicated Topic of the Day — See below.
  • Select 3 bloggers to take part in ‘321 Quote Me!’ — See below the quotes

So, surprise surprise, my quotes come from two highly regarded politicians and leaders. If only our current “leaders,” like Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, and Lindsey Graham, the rest of the Republicans in Congress, would demonstrate even an ounce of courage, we’d be so much better off.

“Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.”

Harry S. Truman

“Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”

Winston Churchill

Okay, now it’s time to tag three other bloggers. How about:

Jim Adams at A Unique Title for Me
John at The Magic Shop
Nova at My Namastè 365 Online

Alrighty then. Go with courage everyone.

    Courage, like morality, are sadly lacking in politics and elsewhere. Those who have it are attacked for having it and speaking out.

      In politics these days, displaying courage seems to be frowned upon. Toeing the party line is all that is important anymore.

        In both parties that is true. Let us hope this new breeze on one side can spread and infect the other.
