Famous quotes containing the words cowardly and/or lion:

    I know you’re here.... What’s wrong? Are you afraid to speak up? Is that all you’re good for, to frighten women? Well, I’m not afraid of you. Whoever heard of a cowardly ghost?
    Philip Dunne (1908–1992)

    A work in progress quickly becomes feral. It reverts to a wild state overnight. It is barely domesticated, a mustang on which you one day fastened a halter, but which now you cannot catch. It is a lion you cage in your study. As the work grows, it gets harder to control; it is a lion growing in strength. You must visit it every day and reassert your mastery over it. If you skip a day, you are, quite rightly, afraid to open the door to its room.
    Annie Dillard (b. 1945)
