Examples of faint-hearted in a Sentence

  1. Marvin Cooley:

    We must pity the poor wretched, timid soul who is too faint-hearted to resist his oppressors. He sings the song of the dammed: “I can’t fight back; I have too much to lose; I own too much property; I have worked too hard to get what I have; They will put me out of business if I resist; I might go to jail; I have my family to think about.” Such poor miserable creatures have misplaced values and are hiding their cowardice behind pretended family responsibility -- blindly refusing to see that the most glorious legacy that one can bequeath to posterity is liberty; and that the only true security is liberty.

  2. Rodrigo Duterte:

    It is not for the faint-hearted, if you are a president and you are afraid of criminals, or you are afraid to kill criminals, then you have no business being a president.
