“An eye can threaten like a loaded and levelled gun, or it can insult like hissing or kicking; or, in its altered mood, by beams of kindness, it can make the heart dance for joy”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“The growing independence of women threatens the traditional (male) roles. Men who aren't sure of themselves, who feel threatened, often deal with this through violence.”
“The coward threatens when he is safe”
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
“A good way to threaten somebody is to light a stick of dynamite. Then you call the guy and hold the burning fuse up to the phone. "Hear that?" you say. "That's dynamite, baby."”
“It is painful enough to discover with what unconcern they speak of war and threaten it. I have seen enough of it to make me look upon it as the sum of all evils.”
Thomas Stonewall Jackson
