Courage Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #7

"If I had the courage--and I haven't--we'd take off down this road and never come back." (13.7)

Is Crazy Old Friedrich a coward because he doesn't desert? Or is he courageous because he stays?

Quote #8

I wandered now through the mists until my good legs could drag me no farther. (15.18)

The fog of war is scarier than any mist from Silent Hill, that's for sure. But Joey, even while wounded, doesn't stop and cower in fear. No, he keeps going toward the unknown. That's one brave horse.

Quote #9

Albert was always with me, and so I was never afraid of the guns anymore. (19.2)

Whereas Joey gave courage to Trooper Warren by paying attention and compensating for his faults as a rider, Albert gives courage to Joey because he is an extremely experienced rider; the two work together perfectly.
