    It is generally attributed to Mark Twain, but that may be a misattribution - in which case it is likely to be old and anonymous.

    There is a similar Ambrose Redmoon quote, but it is different...

    Courage is not the absence of fear,

    but rather the judgement that something else

    is more important than fear.

    - Ambrose Redmoon

    With this wording is spoke by Donald Doyle, from Red vs Blue. But according to him it's supposedly Shakespeare. Unsure.
