Define courage...

The word courage conjures, instantly, images of bravery and an archetypal hero.
We know we can define the word 'courage' as standing up in battle and not backing down in the face of an enemy. But is this really an adequate definition? It fails to take into account the daily acts of courage we define simply in our acts of living. Furthermore this definition seems inadequate to encompass the "importance of knowledge being combined with endurance"*

So, I ask you, if you could be so kind; define courage.
