There are times when fear is good. It must keep its watchful place at the heart's controls.
The thinner the ice, the more anxious is everyone to see whether it will bear.
Minds that are ill at ease are agitated by both hope and fear.
There is no hope unmingled with fear, and no fear unmingled with hope.
Everyone wishes that the man whom he fears would perish.
Every man, through fear, mugs his aspirations a dozen times a day.
I'm different, and my manner invites questions. I'm never afraid to answer.
I have a fear of being boring.
There is nothing that fear and hope does not permit men to do.
Luc de Clapiers
Fear tastes like a rusty knife and do not let her into your house.
Courage is a peculiar kind of fear.
So then learn to conquer your fear. This is the only art we have to master nowadays: to look at things without fear, and to fearlessly do right.
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.
What we have most to fear is failure of the heart.
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.
By adversity are wrought the greatest works of admiration, and all the fair examples of renown, out of distress and misery are grown.

Red is such an interesting color to correlate with emotion, because it's on both ends of the spectrum. On one end you have happiness, falling in love, infatuation with someone, passion, all that. On the other end, you've got obsession, jealousy, danger, fear, anger and frustration.
I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.
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.
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.
Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.
Don't let fear or insecurity stop you from trying new things. Believe in yourself. Do what you love. And most importantly, be kind to others, even if you don't like them.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
