A winner rebukes and forgives; a loser is too timid to rebuke and too petty to forgive.
Sydney J. Harris

How thin and insecure is that little beach of white sand we call consciousness.

I've always felt that creating was a fearless and a timid, a despairing and hopeful, launching out into that unknown.
Athol Fugard

A timid person is frightened before a danger, a coward during the time, and a courageous person afterward.
