Experience helps build character. It takes character to build bravery. And neither are out of fashion, ever.

Does it mean that fashion is superior to bravery? Why?

How come, then , that bravery sometimes is viewed, in other´s eyes, as passivity?

I agree with what Gil de Leon quoted before. "It takes character to build bravery".

Some forms of bravery are nothing more than reckless foolishness.

Bravery or cowardice is not about fashion. It's about people's character.

Bravery a trait not often found among British politicians. A bit like honour.

I do not concur on an intellectual level that bravery is a virtue in itself. That bravery is fashionable might even prove the opposite.

Character is far less fashionable than bravery. Furthermore, bravery is part of your nature not necessarily character. Finally, for bravery to be wise and virtuous there must be many conditions met.

Bravery always walks out with fear... no fear, no bravery. One can be brave in a noble cause... overcoming ones fear...or an ignoble cause, even mistaken virtue. It is correct to say that it is not a virtue by itself.

Excellent quote! Boss

The most powerful response a brave guy could ever have - "I don't know and I don't care."

That is a rather silly point you make Justin. The very word bravery implies overcoming ones fears, it is not a brash and devil-may-care attitude. One has to face ones fears to be brave otherwise it is not bravery. If one has no fear then where is the bravery?

The quote in context:

"The people laughed, but kindly, at the odd garment, for bravery never goes out of fashion "

This quote is from the book "The Four Georges" (1860) a book about the Hanover dynasty of Great Britain (The Hanoverians) and the quote is about George II, but it is not a compliment to the king bravery but a satire is an allusion to an old-fashioned dress (the hat and coat) that the king wore during the appearance in public after the victorious battle of Dettingen on the banks of the river Main in June 1743 During the war Austrian Succession.

Thackeray, in his novels, always tries to find characters worthwhile to exalt his intellectual qualities but he found a single one in the Hanoverians George.....

Bravery never goes out of fashion...

To sit and be told is definitely getting old...
There are so many Bold and Famous people in the forefront that challenge the way people respond to the old fashioned way...
Now women have a voice of reason and they often feel empowered to speak their minds and they choose to wear certain attire to make them stand out...
What people choose to wear is an expression of their attitude...
It is obvious that it is, due to the fact, that they no longer want to feel inhibited... neither, do they want to hide their true sexuality. For instance, choosing to work in Male Dominated fields like Radio, TV, Film, and as Producers..

The issue of change is very important to a person's wardrobe....
People who like new clothes also like new ideas...
They like to look sharp...and they will demand change...
And seldom ever get cheated with the return at the register...
You can't ever play them cheap...Applause

Tell that to the prophets. They were brave until death put them out of style. Establishment sanctioned bravery... yes. But that can be, and almost always is, misdirected to benefit - wait for it - the people who create the establishment.

Bravery is knowing and caring enough to do what's right regardless of the consequences.

And it may never go out of style, but it is certainly a scarce resource.

There are many who are brave to do evil (bad character); There are a few who are brave to do the good; and there are very few who are brave to conquer themselves. The greatest bravery to conquer oneself in the sense of controlling one's prejudices, hatreds, narrow-mindedness, and having true compassion for all living beings and an essential willingness to share with others, but not greedily grab for the sake of the selfish feeling of superiority and false power that money and fear create. True bravery does not entail aggression, but humble service.
