The way of the superior person is threefold; virtuous, they are free from anxieties; wise they are free from perplexities; and bold they are free from fear.

Confucius

Never buy the cheapest wine in any category, as its taste may discourage you from going on. The glass, corks, cartons, and labor are about the same for any wine, as are the ocean freight and taxes for imported wines. Consequently, if you spend a little more, you are likely to get a better wine, because the other costs remain fixed. Cheap wine will always be too expensive.

Alex Bespaloff

Exporting Church employees to Latin America masks a universal and unconscious fear of a new Church. North and South American authorities, differently motivated but equally fearful, become accomplices in maintaining a clerical and irrelevant Church. Sacralizing employees and property, this Church becomes progressively more blind to the possibilities of Sacralizing person and community.

Ivan Illich

Men who fear the strenuous life believe in that cloistered life which saps the hardy virtues in a nation as it saps them in the individual, or else they are wedded to the base spirit of gain and greed which recognize in commercialism the be-all and end-all of national life, instead of realizing that, though an indispensable element, it is, after all, but one of many elements that go to make up true national greatness

Teddy Roosevelt

There can be no press freedom when journalists exist in conditions of corruption, poverty and fear.

Aidan White

If you look into your own heart, and you find nothing wrong there, what is there to worry about? What is there to fear?

Confucius

Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream

Lao Tzu

The American people have a right to air that they and their children can breathe without fear.

Lyndon Baines Johnson

The real "haves" are they who can acquire freedom, self-confidence, and even riches without depriving others of them. They acquire all of these by developing and applying their potentialities. On the other hand, the real "have notch" are they who cannot have aught except by depriving others of it. They can feel free only by diminishing the freedom of others, self-confident by spreading fear and dependence among others, and rich by making others poor

Fear follows crime, and is its punishment

Voltaire

We poison our lives with fear of burglary and shipwreck, and the house is never burgled, and the ship never goes down.

Jean Anouilh

One of the fundamental differences between the Victim Orientation and this one [Creator] is where you put your focus of attentionFor Victims, the focus is always on what they dont want: the problems that seem constantly to multiply in their lives. They dont want the person, condition, or circumstance they consider their Persecutor, and they dont want the fear that leads to fight, flee or freeze reactions, either. Creators, on the other hand, place their focus on what they do want. Doing this, Creators still face and solve problems in the course of creating outcomes they want, but their focus remains fixed on their ultimate vision.
