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

Steve Pavlina

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

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.

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

Claude Arien Helvetius

John Bunyan

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.

Edmund Burke

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
