These Americans are cowards, because if they were courageous, they would have confronted us face-to-face, rather than coming at us from behind.
To how much lying, extravagance, hypocrisy and servilism does not the fear of ridicule lead? Human respect makes us Cowards and slaves. It may deter from evil, but much oftener it drives to baseness. “We are too much afraid,” said Cato, “of death, exile and poverty.”john lancaster spalding
Dishonor waits on perfidy. A man should blush to think a falsehood; it is the crime of Cowards.
A fig for those by law protected! Liberty's a glorious feast! Courts for Cowards were erected, Churches built to please the Priest.Robert Burns
Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once.william shakespeare
Cowards do not count in battle; they are there, but not in it.

The proper (and, at the risk of looking jingoistic, American) way to combat bad speech is with better speech. To silence and be silenced are the refuge of Cowards.
Lie not, neither to thyself nor men nor God. Let mouth and heart be one beat and speak together, and make both felt in action. It is for Cowards to lie.
How comes it to pass, then, that we appear such Cowards in reasoning, and are so afraid to stand the test of ridicule?
To sin by silence, when they should protest, makes Cowards of men.ella wheeler wilcox
Democracy is the great love of the failures and Cowards of life.
A nation that makes a great distinction between its scholars and its warriors will have its laws made by Cowards and its wars fought by fools.
It is thus that mutual cowardice keeps us in peace. Were one-half of mankind brave and one-half Cowards, the brave would be always beating the Cowards. Were all brave, they would lead a very uneasy life; all would be continually fighting; but being all Cowards, we go on very well.samuel johnson
We’ll have a swashing and a martial outside, As many other mannish Cowards have.
A plague of all Cowards, I say.
