Self-confidence
 
  Self-confidence is the first requisite to great undertakings.
Johnson.    
  1
  Self-confidence is either a petty pride in our own narrowness, or a realization of our duty and privilege as one of God’s children.
Phillips Brooks.    
  2
  Self-confidence is not hope; it is the self-judgment of your own internal forces in their relation to the world without, which results from the failure of many hopes and the non-realization of many fears.
Bulwer-Lytton.    
  3
  The great characteristic of men of active genius is a sublime self-confidence, springing not from self-conceit, but from an intense identification of the man with his object, which lifts him altogether above the fear of danger and death, which gives to his enterprise a character of insanity to the common eye, and which communicates an almost superhuman audacity to his will.
E. P. Whipple.
