Beowulf speaks to his own courage and what makes a man courageous early on.....
"Often, for undaunted courage, fate spares the man it has not already marked."
Beowulf goes to fight the dragon alone.
"Yet the prince of the rings was too proud
to line up with a large army
against the sky-plague. He had scant regard
for the dragon as a threat, no dread at all
of its courage or strength, for he had kept going
often in the past, through perils and ordeals
of every sort, after he had purged
Hrothgar's hall, triumphed in Heorot
and beaten Grendel."
