Fear Quotes

Worry is a state of mind based on fear.

Napoleon Hill

Worry is a form of fear.

Bertrand A. Russell

Van Gogh was right in saying that the method he had chosen could be compared to that of caricature. Caricature had always been "expressionist," for the caricaturist plays with the likeness of his victim, and distorts it to express just what he feels about his fellow man. As long as these distortions of nature sailed under the flag of humour nobody seemed to find them difficult to understand. Humourous art was a field in which everything was permitted, because people did not approach it with the prejudices they reserved for Art with a capital A. But the idea of a serious caricature, of an art which deliberately changed the appearance of things not to express a sense of superiority, but maybe love, or admiration, or fear, proved indeed a stumbling block as Van Gogh had predicted.

E.H. Gombrich

You can never become a great man or woman until you have overcome anxiety, worry, and fear. It is impossible for an anxious person, a worried one, or a fearful one to perceive truth; all things are distorted and thrown out of their proper relations by such mental states, and those who are in them cannot read the thoughts of God

Wallace D. Wattles

Doubts÷often beget the facts they fear.

Thomas Jefferson

Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. Worry, fear, self-distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust.

Samuel Ullman

Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained

Arthur Somers Roche

Loneliness, insomnia, and change: the fear of these is even worse than the reality

Mignon McLaughlin

Worry is a complete cycle of inefficient thought revolving about a pivot of fear

Unknown

Courageous people are still afraid, but they don't let the fear paralyze them.

Steve Pavlina

Worry is a think stream of fear which, if encouraged, becomes a wide channel into which all other thoughts flow

Unknown

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear.

Ambrose Redmoon

Wicked men obey from fear; good men, from love.

Aristotle

With reference to the narrative of events, far from permitting myself to derive it from the first source that came to hand, I did not even trust my own impressions, but it rests partly on what I saw myself, partly on what others saw for me, the accuracy of the report being always tried by the most severe and detailed tests possible. My conclusions have cost me some labor from the want of coincidence between accounts of the same occurrences by different eyewitnesses, arising sometimes from imperfect memory, sometimes from undue partiality for one side or the other. The absence of romance in my history will, I fear, detract somewhat from its interest; but I shall be content if it is judged useful by those inquirers who desire an exact knowledge of the past as an aid to the interpretation of the future, which in the course of human things must resemble if it does not reflect it. My history has been composed to be an everlasting possession, not the showpiece of an hour.

Thucydides

There's always a period of curious fear between the first sweet-smelling breeze and the time when the rain comes cracking down.

Don Delillo

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear a hundred battles.

Tzu-Sun

Discipline is simply the art of making the soldiers fear their officers more than the enemy.

Claude Arien Helvetius

He that is down need fear no fall.

John Bunyan

The person I fear most in the last two rounds is myself

Tom Watson

Impatience turns an ague into a fever, a fever to the plague, fear into despair, anger into rage, loss into madness, and sorrow to amazement.

Jeremy Taylor

I will act now. I will act now. I will act now. Henceforth, I will repeat these words each hour, each day, everyday, until the words become as much a habit as my breathing, and the action which follows becomes as instinctive as the blinking of my eyelids. With these words I can condition my mind to perform every action necessary for my success. I will act now. I will repeat these words again and again and again. I will walk where failures fear to walk. I will work when failures seek rest. I will act now for now is all I have. Tomorrow is the day reserved for the labor of the lazy. I am not lazy. Tomorrow is the day when the failure will succeed. I am not a failure. I will act now. Success will not wait. If I delay, success will become wed to another and lost to me forever. This is the time. This is the place. I am the person.

Og Mandino

As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery we have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace. The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger, attachment, fear and suspicion, while love and compassion and a sense of universal responsibility are the sources of peace and happiness.

Dalai Lama

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

Cyril Connolly

There is a courageous wisdom; there is also a false, reptile prudence, the result not of caution but of fear.
