Pusillanimous in a Sentence: pusillanimous politicians who vote according to whichever way the political wind is blowing

Example of pusillanimous: The current govenment of Costa Rica that pardons strikers.

The Spanish word is Pusilánime: Que muestra poco ánimo y falta de valor para emprender acciones, enfrentarse a peligros o dificultades o soportar desgracias.

The Latin roots of this derisive adjective are pusillus, meaning “very small” (and related to pusus, meaning “boy”) and animus, which means “spirit” and is the ancestor to many words in our language, including “animal” and “animate.”
