Quote of the Day
Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.
The world is not fair, and often fools, cowards, liars and the selfish hide in high places.
Bryant H. McGill
Cowards die many times before their actual deaths.
I have learned to live each day as it comes, and not to borrow trouble by dreading tomorrow. It is the dark menace of the future that makes cowards of us.
Obstacles are like wild animals. They are cowards but they will bluff you if they can. If they see you are afraid of them... they are liable to spring upon you; but if you look them squarely in the eye, they will slink out of sight.
Orison Swett Marden
The human race is a race of cowards; and I am not only marching in that procession but carrying a banner.
In battle it is the cowards who run the most risk; bravery is a rampart of defense.
You got to be rigorous in your appraisal system. The biggest cowards are managers who don't let people know where they stand.
Some people are cowards... I think by and large a third of people are villains, a third are cowards, and a third are heroes. Now, a villain and a coward can choose to be a hero, but they've got to make that choice.
The world has no room for cowards.
Robert Louis Stevenson
The most effective leaders are actually better at guarding against danger when they acknowledge it that it exists. Cowards, in contrast, cling to the hope that failure will never happen and may be sloppy in the face of danger - not because they don't acknowledge that it exists, but because they are just too afraid of it to look it in the eye.
To sin by silence, when we should protest, Makes cowards out of men.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Ridicule is a weak weapon when pointed at a strong mind; but common people are cowards and dread an empty laugh.
Martin Farquhar Tupper
Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards.
Fighting is like champagne. It goes to the heads of cowards as quickly as of heroes. Any fool can be brave on a battlefield when it's be brave or else be killed.
Even cowards can endure hardship; only the brave can endure suspense.
Heroes are not known by the loftiness of their carriage; the greatest braggarts are generally the merest cowards.
People who keep dogs are cowards who haven't got the guts to bite people themselves.
This is a formidable enemy. To dismiss it as a bunch of 'cowards' perpetuating 'senseless acts of violence' is complacent nonsense. People willing to kill thousands of innocents while they kill themselves are not cowards. They are deadly vicious warriors and need to be treated as such.
Reflection makes men cowards.
Valor is of no service, chance rules all, and the bravest often fall by the hands of cowards.
Great occasions do not make heroes or cowards; they simply unveil them to the eyes of men. Silently and imperceptibly, as we wake or sleep, we grow strong or weak; and at last some crisis shows what we have become.
Brooke Foss Westcott
We have been the cowards lobbing cruise missiles from 2,000 miles away. That's cowardly. Staying in the airplane when it hits the building, say what you want about it, it's not cowardly.
