There is a statue of William Lloyd Garrison, the famous abolitionist, on the Commonwealth Mall in Boston. Inscribed on the statue are his words – “I am in earnest â€“ I will not equivocate â€“ I will not excuse â€“ I will not retreat a single inch â€“ AND I WILL BE HEARD.” Here’s a man who really said what he meant and stood by it.
In relation to my worry of the day, I tend to be an equivocator. It’s something I am trying to overcome.
equivocate – To be deliberately ambiguous or unclear in order to mislead or to avoid committing oneself to anything definite.
