November 10th, 2013 · 2 Comments

“A fundamental coward is not afraid of the putative cowardice-betraying things, like physical danger.  Those things are cosmetic cowardice.  In deep cowardice you are afraid of life itself, and you learn to wear a coat of bluster and cheer that hides the fear.” – Padgett Powell (interview with Jacob White in “Having It Together”)
