- Elizabeth Kenny

About this Quote

This quote by Elizabeth Kenny recommends that it is much better to take threats and be brave for a short time, instead of living life cowardly and passively. The "lion" represents strength, guts and bravery, whereas the "sheep" represents passivity and weak point. The message is that one should desire defend oneself, to be strong and to face difficulties head-on, instead of cring far from them. Even if one just experiences this type of nerve for a short time, it is much better than living a life in worry and never feeling genuinely alive. For that reason, the quote motivates people to take dangers and to live their lives with confidence and bravery.
