Quote of the Day
Thinking will not overcome fear but action will.
W. Clement Stone
Always do what you are afraid to do.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Fear keeps us focused on the past or worried about the future. If we can acknowledge our fear, we can realize that right now we are okay. Right now, today, we are still alive, and our bodies are working marvelously. Our eyes can still see the beautiful sky. Our ears can still hear the voices of our loved ones.
Thich Nhat Hanh
If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.
What is a fear of living? It's being preeminently afraid of dying. It is not doing what you came here to do, out of timidity and spinelessness. The antidote is to take full responsibility for yourself - for the time you take up and the space you occupy. If you don't know what you're here to do, then just do some good.
The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.
H. P. Lovecraft
Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it.
Fear stifles our thinking and actions. It creates indecisiveness that results in stagnation. I have known talented people who procrastinate indefinitely rather than risk failure. Lost opportunities cause erosion of confidence, and the downward spiral begins.
It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.
I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.
One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't do.
Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live.
What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it. We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it.
I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.
True success is overcoming the fear of being unsuccessful.
Never be afraid to sit a while and think.
There are things which a man is afraid to tell even to himself, and every decent man has a number of such things stored away in his mind.
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.
Pick the day. Enjoy it - to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.
Fears are nothing more than a state of mind.
There is no such thing as paranoia. Your worst fears can come true at any moment.
Hunter S. Thompson
I think fearless is having fears but jumping anyway.
I'm not afraid of storms, for I'm learning how to sail my ship.
Louisa May Alcott
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
