Quote of the Day
Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.
Pope John XXIII
Believe in yourself, take on your challenges, dig deep within yourself to conquer fears. Never let anyone bring you down. You got to keep going.
Fear can be good when you're walking past an alley at night or when you need to check the locks on your doors before you go to bed, but it's not good when you have a goal and you're fearful of obstacles. We often get trapped by our fears, but anyone who has had success has failed before.
The optimist thinks this is the best of all possible worlds. The pessimist fears it is true.
J. Robert Oppenheimer
The game of life is a lot like football. You have to tackle your problems, block your fears, and score your points when you get the opportunity.
The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the procedure, the process is its own reward.
You cannot give up on the American dream. We cannot allow our fears and our disappointments to lead us into silence and into inaction.
He who reigns within himself and rules passions, desires, and fears is more than a king.
My friends, whoever has had experience of evils knows how whenever a flood of ills comes upon mortals, a man fears everything; but whenever a divine force cheers on our voyage, then we believe that the same fate will always blow fair.
Courage is never to let your actions be influenced by your fears.
Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.
There are so many things to talk about between black people, Hispanic people, white people, gay people, men, women, it's all based on fear. We all have fears, this thing that stops us from embracing as we are one. We are never going to be one. People are messed up, but humor lets us see how ignorant we can be.
Never take counsel of your fears.
You are as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fears; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.
There is no such thing as paranoia. Your worst fears can come true at any moment.
Hunter S. Thompson
Most fears of rejection rest on the desire for approval from other people. Don't base your self-esteem on their opinions.
Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.
I mean, what is racism? Racism is a projection of our own fears onto another person. What is sexism? It's our own vulnerability about our potency and masculinity projected as our need to subjugate another person, you know? Fascism, the same thing: People are trying to untidy our state, so I legislate as a way of controlling my environment.
You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.
Sometimes, reading my own media, the negativity can upset me, but I just deal with things on a positive basis. I mean, I have up to 20,000 people singing my words back to me on a nightly basis - they share my hopes and fears, and they relate to my own life experiences. Life can be pretty isolating, but that connection is always amazing.

Just remember, you can do anything you set your mind to, but it takes action, perseverance, and facing your fears.

Louis D. Brandeis
It's wonderful to climb the liquid mountains of the sky. Behind me and before me is God and I have no fears.
What I call my 'self' now is hardly a person at all. It's mainly a meeting place for various natural forces, desires, and fears, etcetera, some of which come from my ancestors, and some from my education, some perhaps from devils. The self you were really intended to be is something that lives not from nature but from God.
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
