On a more mundane level, the label may be applied to those who are regarded as too frightened or overwhelmed to defend their rights or those of others from aggressors in their lives." ~ Wikiquote page header, quotes about cowardice, 2013, http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Cowardice

100. "Behold the universe in the glory of God: and all that lives and moves on earth. Leaving the transient, find joy in the Eternal: set not your heart on another’s possession. Working thus, a man may wish for a life of a hundred years. Only actions done in God bind not the soul of man. There are demon-haunted worlds, regions of utter darkness. Whoever in life denies the Spirit falls into that darkness of death. The Spirit, without moving, is swifter than the mind; the senses cannot reach him: He is even beyond them. Standing still, he overtakes those who run. To the ocean of his being, the Spirit of life leads the streams of action. He moves, and he moves not. He is far, and he is near. He is within all, and he is outside all. Who sees all beings in his own Self, and his own Self in all beings, loses all fears. When a sage sees this great Unity and his Self has become all beings, what delusion and what sorrow can ever be near him? The Spirit filled all with his radiance. He is incorporeal and invulnerable, pure and untouched by evil. He is the supreme seer and thinker, immanent and transcendent. He placed all things in the path of Eternity. Into deep darkness fall those who follow action. Into deeper darkness fall those who follow knowledge. One is the outcome of knowledge, and another is the outcome of action. Thus have we heard from the ancient sages who explained this truth to us. He who knows both knowledge and action, with action overcomes death and with knowledge reaches immortality. Into deep darkness fall those who follow the immanent. Into deeper darkness fall those who follow the transcendent. One is the outcome of the transcendent, and another is the outcome of the immanent. Thus have we heard from the ancient sages who explained this truth to us. He who knows both the transcendent and the immanent, with the immanent overcomes death and with the transcendent reaches immortality. The face of truth remains hidden behind a circle of gold. Unveil it, O God of Light, that I who love the true may see! O life-giving Sun, off-spring of the Lord of creation, solitary seer of heaven! Spread thy light and withdraw thy blinding splendor that I may behold thy radiant form: that Spirit far away within thee is my own inmost Spirit. May life go to immortal life, and the body go to ashes. OM. O my soul, remember past strivings, remember!  O my soul, remember past strivings, remember! By the path of good lead us to final bliss, O Fire Divine thou God who knowest all ways. Deliver us from wandering evil. Prayers and adoration we offer unto thee." ~ Īṣa Upaniṣad, The Inner Ruler
