Cowards die many times before their actual deaths.
You cannot be a hero without being a coward.
That man is not truly brave who is afraid either to seem or to be, when it suits him, a coward.
I know you are here to kill me. Shoot, coward, you are only going to kill a man.
The coward only threatens when he is safe.
Only the brave know how to forgive... a coward never forgave; it is not in his nature.
What has violence ever accomplished? What has it ever created? No martyr's cause has ever been stilled by an assassin's bullet. No wrongs have ever been righted by riots and civil disorders. A sniper is only a coward, not a hero; and an uncontrolled or uncontrollable mob is only the voice of madness, not the voice of the people.
Battle is the most magnificent competition in which a human being can indulge. It brings out all that is best; it removes all that is base. All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood.
