Syn: Heroism, Courage, Fortitude, Bravery, Valor,
Usage: Courage is generic, denoting fearlessness or defiance
of danger; fortitude is passive courage, the habit of
bearing up nobly under trials, danger, and sufferings;
bravery is courage displayed in daring acts; valor is
courage in battle or other conflicts with living
opponents; intrepidity is firm courage, which shrinks
not amid the most appalling dangers; gallantry is
adventurous courage, dashing into the thickest of the
fight. Heroism may call into exercise all these
modifications of courage. It is a contempt of danger,
not from ignorance or inconsiderate levity, but from a
noble devotion to some great cause, and a just
confidence of being able to meet danger in the spirit
of such a cause. Cf. Courage.
