Quote of the Day

An ugly sight, a man who is afraid.
Humble souls are fearful of their own strength.
You know, sometimes I feel well and vital in the world, and sometimes I just feel so distressed I want to pull my hair out by the roots.
I'm different, and my manner invites questions. I'm never afraid to answer.
And the things that we fear are a weapon to be held against us.
No good work is ever done while the heart is hot and anxious and fretted.
I think what weakens people most is fear of wasting their strength.
One thing about being successful is that I stopped being afraid of dying. Once you're a star you're dead already. You're embalmed.
I am convinced that it is not the fear of death, of our lives ending that haunts our sleep so much as the fear... that as far as the world is concerned, we might as well never have lived.
By adversity are wrought the greatest works of admiration, and all the fair examples of renown, out of distress and misery are grown.
What we have most to fear is failure of the heart.
I hasten to laugh at everything, for fear of being obliged to weep.
The mark of fear is not easily removed.
Fear is excitement without breath.
A child understands fear, and the hurt and hate it brings.
When we are afraid we ought not to occupy ourselves with endeavoring to prove that there is no danger, but in strengthening ourselves to go on in spite of the danger.
I was a very fearful little kid, and I would always see the worst in everything. The glass was half-empty. I would see people kissing, and I would think one was trying to bite the other.
The thinner the ice, the more anxious is everyone to see whether it will bear.
Our heavenly Father understands our disappointment, suffering, pain, fear, and doubt. He is always there to encourage our hearts and help us understand that He's sufficient for all of our needs. When I accepted this as an absolute truth in my life, I found that my worrying stopped.
We are afraid to care too much, for fear that the other person does not care at all.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
Some days, 24 hours is too much to stay put in, so I take the day hour by hour, moment by moment. I break the task, the challenge, the fear into small, bite-size pieces. I can handle a piece of fear, depression, anger, pain, sadness, loneliness, illness. I actually put my hands up to my face, one next to each eye, like blinders on a horse.
The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.
We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot.
When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.
John F. Kennedy
