"Courage is being afraid but going on anyhow."
"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition."Dan Rather on Steve Jobs
"You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'"Dan Rather on Eleanor Roosevelt
"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear."Dan Rather on Nelson Mandela
"Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen."Dan Rather on Winston Churchill
"There are no easy answers' but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right."Dan Rather on Ronald Reagan
"But we cannot rely on memorials and museums alone. We can tell ourselves we will never forget and we likely won't. But we need to make sure that we teach history to those who never had the opportunity to remember in the first place."
"Performing doesn't turn me on. It's an egomaniac business, filled with prima donnas - including this one."
"To err is human but to really foul up requires a computer."
"Fear rules almost every newsroom in the country."
"A free and truly independent press - fiercely independent when necessary - is the red beating heart of freedom and democracy."
