去 qù is 'go'

却 què is 'however, on the other hand'

Here's an example from The Buddha statue and the stone steps:
为什么我每天受到人们的践踏,你却能受到大家的膜拜呢? Wèishénme wǒ měi tiān shòudào rénmen de jiàntà, nǐ què néng shòudào dàjiā de móbài ne?
Why have I been trampled on and yet you have been worshipped by people every day?

怯 qiè is 'timid'

The element on the left is a form of 心 xīn 'heart', indicating an emotion.
