There are some things I read that cause me to kick myself in the shin, say, “Dang, I wish I wrote that,” and then give up writing forever.

This quote is one of them:

“The biggest coward of a man is to awaken the love of a woman with no intention of loving her.” ~ Bob Marley.

Dear Bob Marley,

Touche.

Something he learned on his journey I suppose. Something most people learn. I hope.! It’s a complicated thing, love.

Bob Marley’s quote is what it is. No critique needed!.

I believe this is a statement he made about himself. A lesson he learned within. And shared in hopes to perpetuate more honesty in his fellow mankind.

The sentiment is provoking, and a worthy truth, yet with a little easily accesible research on Bob’s tendencies with the ladies, one finds he did not walk the walk on this one. Stir it up!

    We are complicated beings . Thoreau's sister walked to his cabin on Walden Pond to collect his laundry. Lennon could be abusive towards the women in his life. Rainer Marie Rilke abandoned his wife and family. Sometimes I wish I didn't know these things…

The biggest "coward" is a young man walking his path without knowing whats ahead, though not afraid of being afraid he makes a mistake while walking his path, which turns out to be a valuable lesson that enables him to learn and move forward on his path knowing he's gained some insight and wisdom on how he can improve and evolve as a human being. BOOM!

I've never liked that quote. Something about it. Maybe it's the typical male bashing.
Shouldn't it read "The biggest coward is a PERSON…………………….."?
