Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear?

    Yes. Your idea is correct. Something else is more important. I think one should have faith to remove fears.

    Deep faith eliminates fear.

    Basically, having courage is knowing every possible outcome of the risk you're going to take, but going ahead with it anyway, cause you know how important to you that what you're doing is... And that having courage isn't NOT being afraid of anything...

    To put it in an example:

    To have courage would be having the fear of being rejected by a girl when you ask her out, but still asking her anyway

    What that means is that a "courageous" person does what he/she does... whilst still afraid.

    It's not that they're NOT afraid.

    They do what they have to do, regardless.

    I agree on that factor. Worry is a factor that every living being has, and braveness is the resistance to worry, and attain mastery over fear. Every person has worry in him, and it is his ability to recover from it, that makes him brave.
