Here is a short collection of quotes on courage that I think are especially useful for entrepreneurs, who need the “courage to continue” to succeed.

Quotes on Courage for Entrepreneurs

I collect these quotes for entrepreneurs from a variety of sources and tweet them on @skmurphy about once a day where you can get them hot off the mojo wire. At the end of each month I curate them in a blog post that adds commentary and may contain a longer passage from the same source for context.
