I have never thought about courage in this way before. but I really like the way Atticus explains it and I think it digs much deeper into what true courage is then how we normally use it. I’ve always defined courage as something scaring you or making you nervous but you do it anyways. Atticus is pretty much saying even when it seems like there is absolutely no hope, you still go for it and never give up. He’s saying it wont always work out but if you don’t have the courage to even try then there’s not even a possibility it could. I love this way of talking about courage.
