I don't see why those are the only choices in life.

Its always desirable to be brave and clever. Boldness should't be used always unless it is necessary. Especially with loved ones and parents, being bold won't yield good results many times. Being a coward isn't advisable anyway.

It is situations in life which decide how we should react and respond. But if I had to choose one between the given two, I would go with clever and cowardly. Because being with clarity, how small amounts it may be, is extremely important in life. Being brave or bold without knowing what we are doing wouldn't be good.
