James E. Faust
Life inspires more dread than death - it is life which is the great unknown.
Emile M. Cioran
I look forward without dogmatic optimism but without dread.
Robert Anton Wilson
I'm reasonably easygoing. Messing up my lines or making a fool of myself is where you find my fears. Like a lot of English people, I'm prey to embarrassment - the dread that everyone's sort of sniggering at you, that you're going to look like an idiot. I think that sort of halts us all.

John James Audubon
