Fear Quotes

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

Mignon McLaughlin

Fear is not your enemy. It is a compass pointing you to the areas where you need to grow.

Steve Pavlina

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.
