Bobby Kennedy’s Immortal Words on Courage

Robert F.Kennedy - Legends Report

by Kris Deichler, Associate Partner, Lighthouse International

“Few men are willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society. Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence. Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change.”

- Robert F. Kennedy

It takes immense courage to stand up for what we believe in and face the opposition and criticism of our peers or society as a whole. So much so, that very few people have been willing to take that step.

When we look at any legend who has helped change public opinion as Taylor Swift did recently, surpassed people’s expectations like young Bailey Matthews, or even the course of history itself like Abraham Lincoln, it’s courage which enabled them to achieve what they did.
