Eggs is a kind of a plucky, brave 11-year-old boy who thinks he is a boxtroll.

There are so many beautiful things that are a part of the world, and I’ve always looked at life that way; I’ve always tried to put on a smile and a brave front, not just for my kids but in my own life and all the difficulties that I’ve gone through.

Gloria Estefan
What made me so brave? Maybe it was being the middle kid of 11, and we all had to share one bathroom. New underwear? I never discovered that until I got into college.

Alice Ripley
I think I’m brave because I’ve made decisions based – I hope not entirely selfishly – on what I think is right for me to do next.

When I was a kid, there were really only two possible futures in the foreground, which were Orwell’s ‘1984’ and Huxley’s ‘Brave New World’.

Max Richter
Let us be bold. Let us be brave. Let us be together.

Brad Henry
Once brave politicians and others explain the war on drugs’ true cost, the American people will scream for a cease-fire. Bring the troops home, people will urge. Treat drugs as a health problem, not as a matter for the criminal justice system.

Larry Elder
If it wasn’t for so many brave people standing up, speaking out, and fighting for equal rights, we might not have all of the luxuries of freedom that we have today. So many unsung people fought for us to be able to live together in harmony no matter how different we are from one another.

Natalya Neidhart
Be brave and take accountability for your thoughts and beliefs.

Jennifer Hyman
The freedoms and prosperity we enjoy in America are thanks to the brave men and women who have served in our armed forces.

Bill Foster
I was not a popular little girl. I played Robinson Crusoe in a small wooden fort that my parents built for me in the back yard. In the fort, I was neither ostracized nor ill at ease – I was self-reliant, brave, ingeniously surviving, if lost.

Ariel Levy
Thirty years ago, this promise, this allure of democracy, drove hundreds of thousands of people in East Germany onto the streets. What courage they showed! It was these brave people, these peaceful heroes and heroines, who brought the Wall tumbling down.

Frank-Walter Steinmeier
Be brave if you lose and meek if you win.

Harvey Penick
One brave deed makes no hero.

John Greenleaf Whittier
Being brave means to know something is scary, difficult, and dangerous, and doing it anyway, because the possibility of winning the fight is worth the chance of losing it.

Emilie Autumn
Yeah definitely, I have to be brave. There are some bad tackles that we don’t like. But it’s not my job to look at that, it’s the referee’s job, he has to see what is going on. All I try to do is keep going.

Adama Traore
I think sometimes that people think brave means not being afraid, which of course it doesn’t mean that at all. It means that you’re afraid, but you move past that and do it anyway, do what you think is right.

Craig Ferguson
An elephant is the king of the jungle for the simple reason a lion is only brave when there is loads of them.

Dereck Chisora
What I want to see is more mixed casts. We need it. People need to be brave – in the real world, everyone and anyone is around. So if people get to see themselves on the stage, they’ll want to come.

Cynthia Erivo
I think laughter may be a form of courage. As humans we sometimes stand tall and look into the sun and laugh, and I think we are never more brave than when we do that.

Linda Ellerbee
It is courage, courage, courage, that raises the blood of life to crimson splendor. Live bravely and present a brave front to adversity.

Candice Olson
Physical courage, which despises all danger, will make a man brave in one way; and moral courage, which despises all opinion, will make a man brave in another.

Charles Caleb Colton
The brave deserve the lovely – every woman may be won.

Charles Godfrey Leland
The North Country of New York is a region steeped in rich military tradition. Our corner of this country stands out for the remarkable tradition of brave men and women putting themselves in harm’s way for our nation.

Elise Stefanik
‘Betchya Got A Cure’ is my gut response to the media wars in this country, which are driving a wedge between citizens. It’s about taking a stand for individuality and being brave instead of being accepted.

Sophie B. Hawkins
For many of the brave men and women who have fought on the front lines, returning home means trying to navigate a complicated and bureaucratic Veterans Administration benefits system.

Kirsten Gillibrand
When you have a cute outfit on and your makeup looks amazing, the first thing people comment on is your image. When you don’t wear makeup, you hear things like, ‘Oh wow, you look tired,’ or, ‘You’re so brave for not wearing makeup!’

Colbie Caillat
I think, in the past, being brave – being powerful, being strong – were qualities that people associated with being masculine. And I think… no, I don’t think – I know that now we’re realizing they can be feminine, too.

Jessica Chastain
We are all born brave, trusting and greedy, and most of us remain greedy.

Mignon McLaughlin
Be brave enough to live life creatively. The creative place where no one else has ever been.

Alan Alda
What I really feel is necessary is that the black people in this country wil have to upset this apple cart. We can no longer ignore the fact that America is not the… land of the free and the home of the brave.

Fannie Lou Hamer
One should be brave. It’s life, there will be ups and downs. It’s only when you are down, that you get the strength to get back up.

How sleep the brave, who sink to rest, By all their country’s wishes blest!

William Collins
They can see the brave silhouette from almost anywhere in the District of Columbia and use it as a compass to locate other monuments and eventually to find their way out of the great, gray federal wilderness.

Hugh Sidey
If you’re not brave, you’re not going to be free.

Newt Gingrich
I have the skills to box and not get into a war. I’ve been getting punishment I shouldn’t be taking because, sometimes, I’m too brave for my own good. When I’ve got good footwork and movement, I should use them.

Amir Khan
I felt brave when I sang and could put into lyrics what I couldn’t tell anybody else.

Alison Sudol
I’ve gathered some of my close musical and comedian friends, and we’re going to see if we can’t bring a few laughs to these soldiers, raise some money, and hopefully lift their spirits. I consider it an honor and a privilege to give back however I can for the many sacrifices of these incredibly brave men and women.

Ron White
If I were brave enough to say so, I’d like to think that I had written some poems that people are not going to forget.

Peter Davison
To choose love and jump in not knowing, with a lot of unknowns, is a brave act.

Mara Brock Akil
Luck always favours the brave. And you must remember that brave are the people who follow their heart; brave are the people who take chances in life. Which also means you have to say no sometimes. I believe the power of no is greater than yes.

Preity Zinta
Actors seem brave and unpredictable, but they’re spontaneous as a tax return.

Greg Gutfeld
Be convinced that to be happy means to be free and that to be free means to be brave. Therefore do not take lightly the perils of war.

Ladies and gentlemen, god bless America – land of the free, home of the brave.

Dave Grohl
I am proud to be the granddaughter and daughter of immigrants who were brave enough to leave their homes and come to a whole new world with a different language and culture and immerse themselves fearlessly to start a better life for themselves and their families.

Lauren Jauregui
Once you get over the culture shock, Filey is a pleasant spot, particularly at the beginning or end of the summer, when the hotels are half full. The brave go in winter, when the wind can be bitter and biting and Filey resumes its real life as a tiny, introverted fishing community.

David Hewson
And the blood of brave men was shed like unto the shedding of rain from a black cloud.

A brave mind is always impregnable.

Jeremy Collier
I’ve become a less brave traveller since I became a dad, but in the past I was more foolhardy than brave.

David Mitchell
I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.

Thomas Paine
I’m not into makeup or dresses or typically girly things. But to me, those things don’t really define what it is to be a female artist in this industry any more. It’s being brave and courageous and true to yourself.

Tones and I
I’m glad I made business investments, because it gave me the confidence financially to make brave choices. If I hadn’t done that, I’d still have been trying to play 19-year-olds in films. I know there are other avenues for me.

Preity Zinta
Contrary to the macho culture of Mexico, both my grandmothers were very brave young widows. I was always very close to these hard-working, intelligent women.

Carlos Fuentes
You know how sports teach kids teamwork and how to be strong and brave and confident? Improv was my sport. I learned how to not waffle and how to hold a conversation, how to take risks and actually be excited to fail.

Emma Stone
All of our men and women in uniform, including our brave sailors in the U.S. Navy, deserve to have the best tools needed to carry out their mission to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Lauren Boebert
To me, being masculine means being a great guy, a kind and loving husband, and a hard worker, and being honest, taking care of your family, being a good father, and being brave.

Sara Evans
John’s legacy? His bravery. When he had the power, he used it. He really wanted peace on Earth, and John’s lyrics, well, that’s the brave poetry of the ’60s. If he had stayed with us, he could have done so much more.

Astrid Kirchherr
Girl power to me means being brave enough to take that first step and to speak out and be yourself.

Katherine McNamara
Is this America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, where we have to sleep with our telephones off the hooks because our lives be threatened daily, because we want to live as decent human beings in America?

Fannie Lou Hamer
When somebody openly talks about having depression, it’s a very brave thing to do.

Laila Rouass
As for advice for aspiring authors, the best I can give is to be brave. It sounds like a simple enough thing, but it’s not. Rejection is such an integral part of this journey, and it never goes away.

V. E. Schwab
The brave who focus on all things good and all things beautiful and all things true, even in the small, who give thanks for it and discover joy even in the here and now, they are the change agents who bring fullest Light to all the world.

Ann Voskamp
Without a sign, his sword the brave man draws, and asks no omen, but his country’s cause.

I think any life can be interesting, any surroundings can be interesting. I don’t think I could have been so brave if I had been living in a town, competing with people on what can be called a generally higher cultural level.

Alice Munro
I have been called brave in my time, but brave as I may have been against foreign invaders, I have no heart to shed Filipino blood.

Ferdinand Marcos
Over time, I have come to believe that ‘brave’ does not mean what we think it does. It does not mean ‘being afraid and doing it anyway.’ Nope. Brave means listening to the still small voice inside and doing as it says. Regardless of what the rest of the world is saying.

Glennon Doyle Melton
What’s interesting about ‘The Brave and Bold #85’ is it’s a book in which I re-created, or created, Green Arrow.

Neal Adams
I want us to be brave and aggressive and play like Tottenham Hotspur.

Ryan Mason
I’ve been really frugal with money since way back, so I can’t buy something if it’s too expensive. I’m not that brave.

Akira Toriyama
When God calls a man to be upright and pure and generous, he also calls him to be intelligent and skillful, and strong and brave.

Orison Swett Marden

Joe Scarborough
Now when I enter a carriage, it almost empties. But there’s always one brave enough to stay.

Grace Jones
If you have something that you know is important to you and vital to you… then this will perhaps help people understand the importance of confronting it and being brave about it.

Tom Wilkinson
The abuse of power in Hollywood is an epidemic that needs to change and hopefully the women brave enough to speak out against Harvey Weinstein have made other men look at the behaviour and realise it is unacceptable.

Keeley Hazell
There’s something brave and touching about game girls of all ages keeping themselves smart in hard times – one thinks of those wonderful women during World War II drawing stocking seams in eyebrow pencil up the back of legs stained with gravy browning because nylons were so hard to get hold of.

Julie Burchill
I don’t know if, at the end of the day, how brave Saddam Hussein would be if he were stripped of his bodyguards and everything else.

Richard Armitage
Live as brave men; and if fortune is adverse, front its blows with brave hearts.

Marcus Tullius Cicero
I actually enjoy Britney Spears. Not as a singer but as a performer. I just enjoy watching her. I think, ‘You are so brave.’

Laura Benanti
When I think about the lyrics to ‘The Wizard,’ some people could probably feel that they’re laughable. But they actually meant something for us, and we were bold or brave enough to show ourselves from the inside out.

Bill Ward
You, too, women, cast away all the cowards from your embraces; they will give you only cowards for children, and you who are the daughters of the land of beauty must bear children who are noble and brave.

Giuseppe Garibaldi
It is our responsibility – our duty – as Members of Congress to prioritize the care of the brave men and women who risked their lives to protect their fellow Americans.

Tommy Tuberville
Heroes are never perfect, but they’re brave, they’re authentic, they’re courageous, determined, discreet, and they’ve got grit.

Wade Davis
I get real brave when I text people. When I text people, I am so brave because it’s words, but you can’t say stuff.

Leslie Jones
We must reject the cynicism that says allowing every eligible vote to be cast and counted is a ‘power grab.’ Americans understand that these are the values our brave men and women in uniform and our veterans risk their lives to defend.

Stacey Abrams
People say sometimes, gosh, that was brave of you to write such-and-such last week. ‘Brave?’ What do they mean ‘brave?’ It’s right! How could you not write it?

Carl Hiaasen
I learned that Congress is a place with more heart than courage; there are more good souls in Washington than brave ones. I learned that the whole is not always the sum of its parts: that what you put in doesn’t always match what you get out.

Joaquin Castro
The brave love mercy, and delight to save.

John Gay
Mongolia is a country of rich and ancient heritage, unique culture and astounding natural beauty. It is a land of free and brave, peace-loving and hard-working people.

Tsakhiagiin Elbegdorj
The labs were happy that I was brave enough to attempt to program it and the $5 million computer was left entirely to my use. I was their human guinea pig.

Philip Emeagwali
I was too kind of brave and proud to want a dialect coach because I thought that showed weakness in my armor. But then you just learn it’s a more efficient way of doing it. A dialect coach is really important because it takes a certain technical responsibility off your shoulders.

Russell Crowe
Dad had a huge influence on me. I really look up to him for his brave acts. He was an outspoken man. For him, if it was the right thing, he would stand up for the smallest guy around him.

Rajkumar Hirani
I am exceptionally fond of all the brave servicemen and women who have worked, and continue to work, to keep us safe and secure, and protect our values.

Vera Lynn
Bengaluru’s traffic does not allow scope for cycling regularly, but I brave the roads occasionally and take the cycle out to work.

Naveen Tewari
The brave view is that talking it out helps work it out. Maybe the realistic view is that talking it out inflames the issues further. But that is America, especially these days.

Jane Smiley
I’d like to finish my career as a Brave.

Freddie Freeman
It took me 14 years to write ‘Crazy Brave’ because I kept changing the form and I also kept running away from the story. I said I don’t really want to write about myself. But it’s about writing about memory.

Joy Harjo
Yes, you have to be brave enough to take steps that your heart is telling you to take. Because when I decided to go into cricket, not one person told me I was making the right move. At that time, nobody thought the IPL would become so big. I was nervous at that time, because suddenly I was in an uncomfortable spot.

Preity Zinta
History is admirably dangerous. It is not the soft option. Teachers need to be grown up and brave. Sensitivity is fine, but it stops at the door of honest narrative.

Simon Schama
Decisions are for the brave, and I am the bravest, deciding to leave Barcelona and Juventus.

Dani Alves
I’d like to think that I’m brave. That’s a really wonderful personality trait to have. I would love to think I’m the type of person to go rescue someone.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
N.Y. hip-hop is ok, but we gotta become brave again; we have to be brave enough and do something new – that’s what New York is about… New.

The skilful employer of men will employ the wise man, the brave man, the covetous man, and the stupid man.

Du Mu
I am not brave enough to not pay my income tax and risk going to jail. But I can say rather freely what I want to say with my art.

Corita Kent
But only a brief moment is granted to the brave one breath or two, whose wage is the long nights of the grave.

Muhammad Iqbal
Homophobia in male sports is much stronger than in women’s sports; the locker room environment is a lot different. It’s going to be much more of a brave step, an earthshaking move, for a gay male athlete to come out.

Megan Rapinoe
You need to be brave to able to stand up to tough atmospheres and against top players.

John McGinn
It’s a very brave thing to fall in love. You have to be willing to trust somebody else with your whole being, and that’s very difficult, really difficult and very brave.

Nicole Kidman
As citizens, I’m asking you not to leave any child behind. I’m asking you not to be color blind, but to be color brave, so that every child knows that their future matters and their dreams are possible.

Mellody Hobson
Seeing other people perform inspires me. I couldn’t be a good performer if just relied on my own talents. Seeing what other brave choices other actors are making gives me the strength to be bold in auditions and to approach roles in different kind of ways.

Andrew Keenan-Bolger
It is a very brave choice to go against traditional medicine and embrace the alternative route. It’s easier to try the traditional route and then, if it fails, go to the alternatives, but often it can be too late.

Suzanne Somers
It takes one brave woman to implement change and for other women to be able to follow that.

Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters
The only use of an obstacle is to be overcome. All that an obstacle does with brave men is, not to frighten them, but to challenge them.

Woodrow Wilson
Through the centuries, over 1.2 million brave men and women have given their lives for our nation.

Dan Lipinski
Cowards are cruel, but the brave love mercy and delight to save.

John Gay
Suspicion is only another form of cowardice. The man who suspects constantly suspects because he is afraid. Whenever you find a man with a free, frank, generous, brave nature, you will find that man without suspicion.

Robert Green Ingersoll
I believe that the quantum of our knowledge will increase considerably in the coming years and that scientists will continue to be amongst the brave voices speaking out.

Peter Garrett
I majored in English in college, so I read the classic dystopian novels like ‘1984’ and ‘Brave New World.’

Lois Lowry
In the past, I tried to put on a brave face and smile after a defeat, but then it would backfire in training, and I’d get frustrated. Now I just embrace it, let it out, and then, two days later, I’m back in training and ready for the next game.

Millie Bright
A brave man is a man who dares to look the Devil in the face and tell him he is a Devil.

James A. Garfield
I want it to be remembered that Ozzy was the first celebrity who was brave enough to open up his private life to the public. He was the first.

Sharon Osbourne
I’ve lost count of the number of times that I’ve been approached by strangers wanting to tell me that they think I’m brave or inspirational, and this was long before my work had any kind of public profile.

Stella Young
For three years now, our brave men and women in uniform have done everything their country has asked of them, yet President Bush still does not have a plan to win the peace in Iraq and bring our troops home.

Marty Meehan
To help advance democracy, we need to allow for the reunification of Cuban families and the direct sending of remittances to the island’s brave dissidents.

Joe Garcia
I wish I could write ‘Taxi Driver,’ or ‘Blue Velvet,’ something brave, audacious, dramatic and dark. I don’t know if I have the darkness in my own soul to be able to tap into it, unfortunately.

Stephen Merchant
To be a soldier one needs that special gene, that extra something, that enables a person to jump into one on one combat, something, after all, that is unimaginable to most of us, as we are simply not brave enough.

Rupert Everett
Many kids going through tough times watch WWE on TV and tell me that they feel inspired to be strong and brave because of us. That makes me feel the need to be an even better person because I feel like I’m a role model to them, and that’s a responsibility I don’t take lightly.

Natalya Neidhart
For all the brave talk of Brexiteers that the E.U. needs us more than we need them, the reality is that they hold all the cards, and they are going to punish us for leaving.

Anna Soubry
The coward sneaks to death; the brave live on.

George Sewell
I’m not brave, I’m not fantastic. I’m like any other woman. I’m unhappy. I’m difficult. I’m sad. Am I strong, too? Maybe, but not always. There are days when I don’t want to see anyone. The most important thing you learn? You can live with it.

Sonia Rykiel
My personal pride is not strong enough to make me brave. But I don’t know why I equate being brave with fighting.

Kenneth Lonergan
I would ask, ‘Have you read ‘1984’? Have you read ‘Brave New World’? If so, I’m sorry, but you read science fiction.’

Carrie Vaughn
We’re lucky to have many brave and honorable officers in Alabama and around the country.

Tommy Tuberville
I feel simultaneously completely vulnerable and made wholly brave by becoming a parent. It has changed the way that I live my life. Because I want to be an example for my son.

Jennifer Nettles
In all the difficult decisions that I made through the course of running Loudcloud and Opsware, I never once felt brave. In fact, I often felt scared to death. I never lost those feelings, but after much practice, I learned to ignore them. That learning process might also be called the courage development process.

Ben Horowitz
If we want to be proud to be from a country like America and all the things that we hang our hats on, like diversity, equality, land of the free and home of the brave, it’s everybody’s responsibility to ensure that everyone in the country is being afforded the same rights.

Megan Rapinoe
We are thankful for the sacrifices of the brave emergency responders who risk their own lives to protect the lives and property of their fellow citizens.

Mike Parson
They say Princes learn no art truly, but the art of horsemanship. The reason is, the brave beast is no flatterer. He will throw a prince as soon as his groom.

Ben Jonson
Insulting people doesn’t make you brave, bold, cool or courageous.

Mandira Bedi
In my judgment, the American people are too brave, too charitable, too generous, too magnanimous, to believe in the infamous dogma of an eternal hell.

Robert Green Ingersoll
‘Skins’ wanted to create a new thing by actually casting real teenagers. I think it was very brave of them. They also wanted to give the opportunity to people who didn’t go to drama school.

Kaya Scodelario
I think of those giants who made the Indian National Congress. Seldom has the world seen a nobler galaxy of women and men, so selfless in their devotion to the cause of freedom, so exalted in thought, so brave in action, so pure in spirit.

Rajiv Gandhi
Something I stand for is being brave enough to invest in creative ideas that I firmly believe in and bringing those to life.

I am lucky that my in-laws are incredibly special people and I love them dearly. My father-in-law is an extraordinary man and my mom-in-law a beautiful and brave woman.

Riya Sen
While we can never truly repay the debt we owe our heroes, the least we should do for our brave veterans is to ensure that the government takes a proactive approach to delivering the services and benefits they have earned, so they can access the care they need and so richly deserve.

Kirsten Gillibrand
I don’t know if I’m brave.

Sacha Baron Cohen
My first passion was to create for young girls the idea that you have to be brave and courageous, it’s not easy taking big steps and saying, ‘I’m going to be a professional dancer’.

Oti Mabuse
Sometimes it’s easy to do brave things in front of a thousand people, but it’s hard to do them in front of a handful. It feels so much more exposing.

Essie Davis
You have to be brave and not always play likeable people. It’s difficult, because there’s a demand for the hero or heroine to be very likeable.

Felicity Jones
The main idea with Brave is that you don’t have to think about Bitcoin; you just have this frictionless payment system.

Brendan Eich
I knew nothing about the industry, I didn’t go to fashion school, but I was brave enough to do things in a different way.

Peter Nygard
We ask our men and our women to go overseas to fight for our country and sacrifice so much for this great country so that we can be the land of the free, the land of the brave.

Ainsley Earhardt
God has entrusted us with his most precious treasure – people. He asks us to shepherd and mold them into strong disciples, with brave faith and good character.

John Ortberg
I see myself as somebody who supports the bravest of the brave – the warfighter.

Sebastian Gorka
There is no greater call to service than that of our brave men and women who serve our country in combat across the globe.

Kirsten Gillibrand
I’m not the spring chicken everyone wants. I’ve got a debilitating illness. The brave face is ‘I’m busy with work’ but I’ve sort of chucked myself on the scrapheap. That’s why I’m single. I’ve resigned myself to being a difficult woman.

Jack Monroe
Pep is a modern coach, he’s intelligent, brave, likes football and always has the players on his side. He knows a lot about football, but Mourinho’s success in all countries where he has been confirms him as the best.

Roberto Carlos
I’m not claiming to be anything out of the ordinary. I am not especially big or strong or brave or intrepid.

Roz Savage
It took a brave editor in the U.S. to sign a contract for Dancing Girls, and without her belief in the book, I’m not sure it would ever have found its way into print.

Louise Brown
Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave.

Indira Gandhi
I was raised in the ’70s, and I’ve worked with people I love, and I’ve been on sets with my parents, with people who run a set and require of actors a sense of liberty and freedom and exploration and failure into brave achievement.

Laura Dern
For me fortunately, my mother was my backbone. She was an independent and fierce woman, and she made sure I am too. She wanted me to be a brave person.

Asha Parekh
I courted fame but as a spur to brave and honest deeds; who despises fame will soon renounce the virtues that deserve it.

David Mallet
It is vain for the coward to flee; death follows close behind; it is only by defying it that the brave escape.

Big mistakes were made in Benghazi, and people should be held accountable. But the brave officers who staff American posts in crisis zones know how dangerous the work is.

David Ignatius
I was in the Navy when the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were attacked and Flight 93 went down in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. I remember the selflessness of our first responders, including brave New Jerseyans, who were there when our country needed them most.

Mikie Sherrill
No matter how good you are, how brave you are or anything, it comes down to that car so many times. Not every time, but so many times.

Danica Patrick
And I desperately needed books that would take me out of my environment and show me a world where being smart and brave and prepared was more important than being cute or cheerful or knowing the right thing to say. And that’s what science fiction and fantasy gave me.

Leigh Bardugo
To see for themselves what the United States has been willing to undertake in the name of freedom. We should all visit Normandy. We should pay homage to those brave Americans who stormed ashore at Omaha Beach and gave their lives for the freedom of others.

Fatos Nano
I just love actors, and I’ve always loved actors. I empathize with their job. Everyone thinks it’s easy, and it ain’t. To be that vulnerable and brave on camera is tough. The more they reveal themselves, the more we love them, but there’s a lot of truth in what they’re showing.

Paul Haggis
We call our country home of the brave and land of the free, but it’s not. We give a false portrayal of freedom. We’re not free – if we were, we’d allow people their freedom.

Jesse Ventura
I always put on a brave face when I was the most terrified, the most trapped and out of control.

Natalia Kills
Memorial Day is a special day to take pause and pay tribute to those brave men and women who lost their lives defending our country and preserving our way of life.

Cindy Hyde-Smith
I think City are probably four or five years ahead of us, they’ve had a manager for such a long time, worked a certain way for such a long time. Going forward, my idea and I’m sure everyone’s idea of Tottenham is to be brave and try and dominate games like they do.

Ryan Mason
I say, ‘Be brave. Do it even if your ankles shake, because they will.’

Rose McGowan
I read the ‘Harry Potter’ books as I was writing my own books, and I love them, but I don’t think Harry was very much like I was as a kid. He’s always brave, and he’s perfect in a lot of ways.

Jeff Kinney
‘Heroine’ is about a declining and imbalanced superstar – a very brave and bold role. I wanted to test whether I could carry a role like this. I have given 200 per cent to this role. She’s a very complex character, very aggressive, manipulative and bold, yet she’s very fragile.

Kareena Kapoor Khan
Israel was not created in order to disappear – Israel will endure and flourish. It is the child of hope and the home of the brave. It can neither be broken by adversity nor demoralized by success. It carries the shield of democracy and it honors the sword of freedom.

John F. Kennedy
There was the ‘Cosby Show’ in America in the 1980s, which was a doctor in a beautiful Brownstone middle-class house. We just haven’t created a role like that in the U.K.; it’s always gangs and crime. We need to be brave.

David Harewood
When Facebook launched, it dove headfirst into a brave new world. No one knew that the cost of connecting people all over the world for ad revenue was eventually going to be Cambridge Analytica.

Sarah Jeong
We all join the President in applauding the sacrifices made by our brave men and women in uniform. But we must continue to provide them the tools they need to accomplish the difficult tasks they face.

Dick Durbin
I think we’re pretty brave.

To actually leave your home and somebody you have probably been with a long time is very brave.

Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall
I think that many people are ashamed when they feel afraid. There’s this thing in our society that you’re not allowed to feel scared. You have to be a man and put on a brave face, but we all have fears.

Eli Roth
