My fear is that I go up to the girl of my dreams and say 'I'm sorry, but I've got to say hello to you,' and she slides the stool back and gets up and walks away, saying, 'Not for me, Bub. I don't want anything to do with you.'
For me, there is only love and fear.

You cannot avoid war in life, you cannot avoid the fear of terrorism, you cannot avoid those things now, they are a part of everyday demeanor.
Too many Christians are living in a house of fear and not in the house of love.
I was taught that to create anything you had to believe in failure, simply because you had to be prepared to go through an idea without any fear. Failure, you learned, as I did in art school, to be a wonderful thing. It allowed you to get up in the morning and take the pillow off your head.
There are only three sins - causing pain, causing fear, and causing anguish. The rest is window dressing.

I define fear as standing across the ring from Joe Louis and knowing he wants to go home early.
Being afraid to tell the truth because of the projected consequences, whatever it may be, shows a lack of faith and an abundance of fear.
The heart never grows better by age; I fear rather worse, always harder. A young liar will be an old one, and a young knave will only be a greater knave as he grows older.

I'm not denying that depression can be spiritually induced. Guilt from having wronged and hurt others can bring it on. A sense of having failed to live out the will of God can give rise to depression. Certainly the fear of death and what might follow can sap the joy out of life.
But I love being scared. I think you're brave only when you do things that scare you. I've always used fear as a motivator. I'm not sure why.

War is fear cloaked in courage.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
