What is "Courage"?

For some reason, I asked this question to three different people over IM tonight: "What is courage?"

They all gave (equally valid) responses, by their own definitions. My response was something I'd either read or heard somewhere:
Courage is not about the absence of fear.
It is about doing something in spite of our fear.

I just felt like sharing this with you.

    One of my friend's favourite quotes:

    "Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die." ~G.K. Chesterton
