"Non-violence and cowardice are contradictory terms. Non-violence is the greatest virtue, cowardice the greatest vice. Non-violence springs from love, cowardice from hate. Non-violence always suffers, cowardice would always inflict suffering. Perfect non-violence is the highest bravery. Non-violent conduct is never demoralising, cowardice always is. "
Mahatma Gandhi

"Non-violence and cowardice go ill together. I can imagine a fully armed man to be at heart a coward. Possession of arms implies an element of fear, if not cowardice. But true non-violence is an impossibility without the possession of unadulterated fearlessness. "
Mahatma Gandhi

"To see the right and not to do it is cowardice."

"Cowardice, as distinguished from panic, is almost always simply a lack of ability to suspend the functioning of the imagination."
Ernest Hemingway

"Great occasions do not make heroes or cowards; they simply unveil them to the eyes of men."
Bishop Westcott
