Edgar Albert Guest talks about the way courage can present itself in varied ways in a person's life. Courage, in general, is perceived as a great thing where one does difficult tasks like jumping over cliffs, mountain trekking or skydiving. But Guest says that courage can reveal itself in the most trivial and smallest of the things. It does not always mean working hard on difficult tasks. It can be a small gesture like boarding a train or signing up for a new class. It can be doing things that make one scared. Courage is not an instant thing. It does not occur to a person when one is facing difficulty and leave after things get fine. It remains forever within a person and shows up when needed. One can exhibit courage during the time of defeat as well as victory. Therefore courage does not always have to manifest in greater forms but can also lie in the little things.
