勇気を持って生きる / 生きる勇気を持つ; 生きる勇気がある
Explanation:
勇気を持って生きる (yuuki o motte ikiru)
or
生きる勇気を持つ (ikiru yuuki o motsu)
生きる勇気がある (ikiru yuuki ga aru)

Two interpretation would be available depending on which you want to emphasize, to have the courage or to live. The first one, "勇気を持って生きる" (yuuki o motte ikiru), is something like "to live with courage", and the second one, "生きる勇気を持つ" (ikiru yuuki o motsu) or "生きる勇気がある" (ikiru yuuki ga aru), is something like "to have the courage for living".
