Quotes: Cowardly Lion
"Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway."

"Fear has nothing to do with cowardice. A fellow is only yellow when he lets his fear make him quit."
Jerome Cady

Roman General: "There is no shame in fear! There is only shame in letting fear rule you! Try not to look scared, and you will find bravery in your heart!"
English General: "...any man who faces battle without concern, is a moonstruck fool. To be brave is to go forward anyway, no matter how afeared! That is why I go forward, with so many other brave men."

"Superman isn't brave. He's smart, handsome, even decent. But he's not brave. No, listen to me. Superman is indestructible, and you can't be brave if you're indestructible. It's people like you and your mother. People who are different, and can be crushed and know it. Yet they keep on going out there every time."
Grandpa, Angus

Shinji Ikari: I mustn't run away... I mustn't run away... I mustn't run away!

Butters yelped and I looked up to see Cassius holding the knife, sweeping it clumsily at his opponent. Butters skittered away from the knife, eyes wide with terror.
But he skittered directly between Cassius and me.
And held his ground.
Harry Dresden, Dead Beat

Sabrina: That was very brave of you, Gordy.
Gordy: Don't talk, run!

Cowardly Lion: All right, I'll go in there for Dorothy. Wicked Witch or no Wicked Witch, guards or no guards, I'll tear them apart. I may not come out alive, but I'm going in there. There's only one thing I want you fellows to do.
Tin Woodsman, Scarecrow: What's that?
Cowardly Lion: Talk me out of it!
