People who bite the hand that feeds them usually lick the boot that kicks them.”   —   Eric Hoffer

(I don’t know.  Do ingratitude and cowardice necessarily go hand-in-hand?  Neither trait qualifies as a virtue, but I’m not so sure these personality flaws go in tandem.  What do you guys think?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I agree, ingratitude and servility don’t necessarily go together. I’m not sure where this quote came from, but Hoffer’s big theme (“The True Believer”) was about why people readily joined totalitarian/ authoritarian movements, specifically Nazism and Stalinism. (Can we suggest Trumpism?) I imagine biting the hand, and then licking the boot, are two essential steps in joining a mass, fanatical movement.

    maybe a person whose bullying behavior toward his caretaker (or say a wife abuser) covers for a deep cowardice… when he encounters a bigger bully, he succumbs to his fear ?????
