Think of someone you know who's not saved but you may be afraid to share the Gospel with that person. I've found a way that's radically effective in training people to share the Gospel.
If you don't take no chances, then you're not a performer. Performers always take chances. You go see a singer, they'll hit the high note. They'll hit that note, they're not afraid, they're gonna exaggerate the fact and make me enjoy it, make me say, 'Wow, I wish I could do that!'
I spent my entire life being afraid. I was afraid of everything - height, flights - I had no idea why.
I never wanted children; maybe I'm afraid of responsibility.
I'm not really afraid of things that are imaginary. I enjoy it. I enjoy big narrative, and I enjoy big feelings. Having a feeling is never going to kill you.
It's not okay to be fat - not because of the way you look, but because it's unhealthy. I have experienced hormonal problems, bad skin, immense laziness, and back and knee pain. It's not fine to be too fat or too thin! Anything in extremes is wrong. I am afraid of putting on weight because I don't want to develop health problems.
I'm not afraid to call a wine that tastes like Skittles or green peppers mixed with orange marmalade. I'll say, 'It tastes like chicken.' I mean, that's not what people think of when they think of wine, but that's what it tastes like to me and it hits home.
I'm not scared of snakes, spiders or heights. I have three children; as a mum, you can't be afraid of things like that.
Many mathematicians derive part of their self-esteem by feeling themselves the proud heirs of a long tradition of rational thinking; I am afraid they idealize their cultural ancestors.
I'm not afraid of chaos and I'm happy talking to strangers. I really love not knowing where I'm going.
I just want to show off my scar proudly and not be afraid of it.
People are always afraid of the truth.
People say I seem very negative about new music - well, if somebody asks me what I think of Keane, I'll tell 'em. I don't like 'em. I'll obviously take it a step too far and grossly insult the keyboard player's mam or summat, but I'm afraid that's just me.
I am not afraid of my enemies, but by God, you must look out when you get among your friends.
I was right not to be afraid of any thief but myself, who will end by leaving me nothing.
Katherine Anne Porter
When I was younger, I was almost too afraid to admit that I wanted to be an actor.
As Christians we need to be patient, understanding, and kind. Instead of going on the attack, we can ask genuine questions. Instead of bristling when our narrative is summarily dismissed, we can carefully explain our way of seeing things. And when we are wrong, we won't be afraid to say so.
In Ethiopia... you might find a seven-year-old expected to take 15 goats out into the fields for the whole day with only a chapati to eat and his whistle. Why are we so afraid to give our children responsibilities like this?
We're not afraid of risking what was our success yesterday in order to explore some new field. We're adventurous. We like the challenge of unknown territory, unknown artistic field, and that's what stimulates us.
I play guitar quite a bit, because I'm always in search of something. I don't play to jam, but because I'm fishing. I'm looking for something, that I hope you can never find. If I do find it, I'm afraid I won't have a need to do this any more.
Travel can also be the spirit of adventure somewhat tamed, for those who desire to do something they are a bit afraid of.
It's fear of being afraid that frightens me more than anything else.
I think I've always been somebody, since the deaths of my father and brother, who was afraid to hope. So, I was more prepared for failure and for rejection than for success.
It's not that I am not emotional, but I am extremely secure and curb it, as I am afraid to let go and be broken. So, I have cultivated myself to be detached in life, specially where movies are concerned.
I love pencil skirts, but I'm always looking for a top. And then I'm afraid, by myself, to match, to try colors. When I wear a dress, I know the top matches the bottom. So I can't make a mistake.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
