Dread Quotes

And yet in a way I would rather fail point blank. Things one can do have no value. I don't mind feeling small myself, but I dread finding the world is.

Elizabeth Bowen

When one has too great a dread of what is impending, one feels some relief when the trouble has come

Joseph Joubert

Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given--when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes.--

Joan Winmill Brown

The dread of loneliness is greater than the fear of bondage, so we get married.

Cyril Connolly

To me so deep a silence portends some dread event; a clamorous sorrow wastes itself in sound.

Sophocles

The awe and dread with which the untutored savage contemplates his mother-in-law are amongst the most familiar facts of anthropology.

Sir James George Frazer

Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.

George Bernard Shaw

Responsibility is the thing people dread most of all. Yet it is the one thing in the world that develops us, gives us manhood or womanhood fiber.

Frank Crane

The work of worrying ñ when it succeeds ñ is to rehearse what those dangers are, and reflect on ways to deal with them. But worry doesnít work all that well. New solutions and fresh ways of seeing a problem do not typically come from worrying, especially chronic worry. Instead of coming up with solutions to these potential problems, worriers typically ruminate on the danger itself, immersing themselves in a low-key way in the dread associated with it while staying in the same rut of thought. Chronic worriers worry about a wide range of things, most of which have almost no chance of happening; they read dangers into lifeís journey that others never notice.

Daniel Goleman

Court not the critic's smile nor dread his frown

Sir Walter Scott

Fate steals along with silent tread, Found oftenest in what least we dread; Frowns in the storm with angry brow, But in the sunshine strikes the blow.

William Cowper

The key to overcoming aloneness and a feeling of uselessness for one who is physically able is to step outside yourself by helping others who are truly needy. We promise those who will render this kind of service that, in some measure, you will be healed of the loss of loved ones or the dread of being alone. The way to feel better about your own situation is to improve someone else's circumstances.

Ezra Taft Benson

Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given--when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes.

Joan Winmill Brown

He who knows what it is to enjoy God will dread His loss; he who has seen His face will fear to see His back.

Richard Alleine

We would rather be ruined than changed We would rather die in our dread Than climb the cross of the moment And let our illusions die.

Wystan Hugh Auden
