    "The state or quality of mind or spirit that enables one to face danger, fear, or vicissitudes with self-possession, confidence, and resolution; bravery."

    I know this is just a bookish defination to understand the meaning of Courage, but for me " Courage arises when you converts your NEED into WANT and WANT into DESIRE and ready to pay anything to get your desire fulfilled,come what may. So be courageous.
