Fear

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Look not mournfully into the past, it comes not back again. Wisely improve the present, it is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future without fear and with a manly heart.

Elizabeth Goudge

There’s nothing like protecting someone more frightened than one is oneself…to make one feel as brave as a lion…

Herman Melville

Ignorance is the parent of fear.

George MacDonald

…but that is the way fear serves us: It always sides with the thing we are afraid of.

J. Patrick Lewis

Never fear failure. Embrace it. It’s the only sure path to success.

Babe Ruth

Never allow the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game!

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Don’t waste your life in doubts and fears: spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour’s duties will be the best preparation for the hours or ages that follow it.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Don’t waste your life in doubts and fears: spend yourself on the work before you, well assured that the right performance of this hour’s duties will be the best preparation for the hours or ages that follow it.

Marie Curie

Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.

William Arthur Ward

Another fresh new year is here . . . Another year to live! To banish worry, doubt, and fear, To love and laugh and give! This bright new year is given me To live each day with zest . . . To daily grow and try to be My highest and my best! I have the opportunity Once more to right some wrongs, To pray for peace, to plant a tree, And sing more joyful songs!

Mark Twain

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear – not absence of fear.

Orrin Woodward

Doubts in your mind are a much greater roadblock to success than obstacles on the journey.

Mark Twain

I’ve had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.

Eleanor Roosevelt

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

Ferdinand Foch

None but a coward dares to boast that he has never known fear.

Zig Ziglar

F-E-A-R has two meanings: ‘Forget Everything And Run’ or ‘Face Everything And Rise.’ The choice is yours.

Steve Jobs

Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything – all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.
