  • Synonyms Gallant, Valiant, Courageous, Brave, Heroic, valorous, dauntless, chivalrous, doughty, resolute manful. Gallant, splendid in dress or qualities, is most appropriately used with regard to courage which exhibits itself in deeds attracting attention and applause; of the first four words it is that which may have in it most of compliment and least of high commendation, but it is often a strong word, expressing splendid bravery in action: as, he was a gallant officer. Valiant is also brave in action, especially in opposing physical force, as in battle. The word is now elevated and poetic. Courageous denotes the possession of that spirit which enables one fearlessly and with full presence of mind to face danger. Brave is the most comprehensive of the words; it may denote the possession of the highest and noblest kind of courage and fortitude, of that spirit which enables a man to bear up against evil and danger, as well as to go forth to face it. Courageous has much of this breadth of meaning, but is applicable rather to doing than to enduring; brave is both passive and active. Heroic combines the meaning of all the other words in the superlative degree. It indicates a lofty superiority to fear, a noble self-forgetfulness, an almost superhuman power to dare, achieve, or suffer. It bears the same relation to the otehr words that sublime bears to great, grand, or lofty.
