Cowardice

Nothing wrong with cowardice as long as it comes with prudence. But when a coward stops remembering who he is… God help him.

Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner

It’s obsequious little nicety-nice girls like me who allow assholes to run the world: Miss Harlot O’Harlots, billionaire phony tree huggers, hypocrite drug-snorting, weed-puffing peace activists who fund the mass-murdering drug cartels and perpetuate crushing poverty in dirt-poor banana republics. It’s my petty fear of personal rejection that allows so many true evils to exist. My cowardice enables atrocities.

Chuck Palahniuk, Damned

Cowardice… is almost always simply a lack of ability to suspend functioning of the imagination.

Ernest Hemingway
