Fear Quotes

I'm proof against that word failure. I've seen behind it. The only failure a man ought to fear is failure of cleaving to the purpose he sees to be best.

T.S. Eliot

Courage is fear that has said its prayers.

Dorothy Bernard

You can motivate by fear. And you can motivate by reward. But both of these methods are only temporary. The only lasting thing is self-motivation.

Homer Rice

Fear is the outcome of weakness, a cowards friend, an enemy of firmness. Fear of death is the cause of all human fears. One who wins the fear of death wins himself. He is the one who wins the freedom. From his mental prison.

V.Prabhakaran

Let those flatter who fear; it is not an American art

Thomas Jefferson

As long as you have attachment to the body and attachment to objects, fear and suffering will be with you. Therefore, Krishna told Arjuna to develop his discrimination and rid himself of body consciousness.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba

Referring to Caesar: He must fear many, whom many fear. Necesse est multos timeat quem multi timent.

Laberius Decimus

Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind; the thief doth fear each bush an officer.

William Shakespeare

The guilt being great, the fear doth still exceed.

William Shakespeare

All fear, but fear of heaven, betrays a guilt, And guilt is villainy.

Nathaniel Lee

Guilt alone, like brain-sick frenzy in its feverish mood, fills the light air with visionary terrors, and shapeless forms of fear.

Junius

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

True success is overcoming the fear of being unsuccessful.

Paul Seeney

Overcoming fear and worry can be accomplished by living a day at a time or even a moment at a time. Your worries will be cut down to nothing.

Dr. Robert Anthony

I embrace death without regret as I embraced life without fear.

Kargos Bloodspitter

Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth -- more than ruin -- more even than death.... Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit.

Bertrand Russell

Love will find a way through paths where wolves fear to prey.

Lord Byron

Fear not that thy life shall come to an end, but rather fear that it shall never have a beginning.

John Henry Cardinal

If you fear making anyone mad, then you ultimately probe for the lowest common denominator of human achievement

Carter, Jr.

Courage is not the absence of fear, but simply moving on with dignity despite that fear.

Pat Riley

I sometimes react to making a mistake as if I have betrayed myself. My fear of making a mistake seems to be based on the hidden assumption that I am potentially perfect and that if I can just be very careful I will not fall from heaven. But a 'mistake' is a declaration of the way I am, a jolt to the way I intend, a reminder I am not dealing with the facts. When I have listened to my mistakes I have grown.

Hugh Prather

FEAR is an acronym in the English language for "False Evidence Appearing Real"

Neale Donald Walsch

Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.

Bertrand Russell
