Mahatma Gandhi
“Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.”
Mahatma Gandhi

Marcus Aurelius
“You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”
Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
“What do you mean? What do you demand of your captain? Are you then so easily turned from your design? Did you not call this a glorious expedition? And wherefore was it glorious? Not because the way was smooth and placid as a southern sea, but because it was full of dangers and terror; because at every new incident your fortitude was to be called forth and your courage exhibited; because danger and death surrounded it, and these you were to brave and overcome. For this was it a glorious, for this was it an honourable undertaking. You were hereafter to be hailed as the benefactors of your species; your names adored as belonging to brave men who encountered death for honour and the benefit of mankind. And now, behold, with the first imagination of danger, or, if you will, the first mighty and terrific trial of your courage, you shrink away, and are content to be handed down as men who had not strength enough to endure cold and peril; and so, poor souls, they were chilly and returned to their warm firesides. Why that requires not this preparation; ye need not have come thus far, and dragged your captain to the shame of a defeat, merely to prove yourselves cowards. Oh! be men, or be more than men. Be steady to your purposes and firm as a rock. This ice is not made of such stuff as your hearts may be; it is mutable and cannot withstand you if you say that it shall not. Do not return to your families with the stigma of disgrace marked on your brows. Return as heroes who have fought and conquered, and who know not what it is to turn their backs on the foe.”
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley

Napoléon Bonaparte
“Courage isn't having the strength to go on - it is going on when you don't have strength.”
Napoléon Bonaparte

Sydney Smith
“The fact is that in order to do anything in this world worth doing, we must not stand shivering on the bank thinking of the cold and the danger, but jump in and scramble through as well as we can.”
Sydney Smith, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers: A Cyclopaedia of Quotations, from the Literature of All Ages
