Being Afraid Quotes
To be a champion, I think you have to see the big picture. It's not about winning and losing; it's about every day hard work and about thriving on a challenge.

We hold back our true feelings and beliefs, whether it's from a sense of being polite or fear of hurting someone's feelings.

Why on earth would I want to tell people I'm 35, which I'm not, and have them say, 'Oh that's nice,' when I could tell them I'm 47, which I am, and have them look at me and go, 'Whoa!'. I'm not afraid of aging. I stopped being afraid of life a long time ago.

Diane von Furstenberg
