cowardice

A Quote by Harry Emerson Fosdick, D.D. on accuracy, change, courage, cowardice, ethics, facts, falsehood, fidelity, honesty, life, love, loyalty, persistence, science, theft, and truth

Granted the endless variations of moral customs, still the essential standards persist. As in a scientific laboratory, all else may change but the standards are unalterable- disinterested love of truth, fidelity to facts, accuracy in measurement, exactness of verification-so, in life as a whole, the towering ethical criteria remain unshaken. Falsehood is never better than truth, theft better than than honesty, treachery better than loyalty, cowardice better than courage.

Harry Fosdick (1878 - 1979)

A Quote by George Eliot on cowardice, defeat, losing, and winning

Any coward can fight a battle when he's sure of winning, but give me the man who has pluck to fight when he's sure of losing. That's my way, sir; and there are many victories worse than a defeat.

George Eliot (1819 - 1880)
