William Faulkner Quotes on Cowardice (2 Quotes)


  • Like a fellow running from or toward a gun ain't got time to worry whether the word for what he is doing is courage or cowardice.
    (William Faulkner, "Light in August")

  • Be scared. You can't help that. But don't be afraid. Ain't nothing in the woods going to hurt you unless you corner it, or it smells that you are afraid. A bear or a deer, too, has got to be scared of a coward the same as a brave man has got to be.
    (William Faulkner)
