Fear - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

Don`t let fear keep you quiet. You have a voice, so use it. Speak up. Raise your hands. Shout your answers. Make yourself heard. Whatever it takes, just find your voice, and when you do, fill the damn silence.

Grey`s Anatomy (movie)

When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty.

Thomas Jefferson

Fear is part of war, the part that keeps us alive.

Arrow (movie)

When I feel afraid, I open my heart and let the love dissolve the fear.

Louise L. Hay

No one can ever prepare you for what happens when you have a child. When you see the baby in your arms and you know that it`s your job now. No one can prepare you for the love and the fear. No one can prepare you for the love people you love can feel for them. And nothing can prepare you for the indifference of friends who don`t have babies.

About Time (movie)

Fear of the Lord is not the beginning of wisdom. It is the beginning of insanity.

C. J. Anderson

Never fear spoiling children by making them too happy. Happiness is the atmosphere in which all good affections grow.

Thomas Bray

If love [...] is the reason for being moral, what relevance does the existence or non-existence of a deity have? Why can we not be prompted to the ethical life by our own charitable feelings? The existence of a god adds nothing to our moral situation, other than an invisible policeman who sees what we do (even in privacy and under cover of night), and a threat of post-mortem terrors if we misbehave. Such additions are hardly an enrichment of the moral life, since the underpinning they offer consists of fear and threats of punishment: which is exactly what, among other things, the moral life seeks to free us from.

A. C. Grayling

I never lie because I don`t fear anyone. You only lie when you`re afraid.

John Gotti

Feel the fear and do it anyway.

Susan Jeffers

I do not fear death. I fear suffering. And I fear old age, though less so now that I am witnessing the tranquil and pleasant old age of my father. I am afraid of frailty, and of the absence of love. But death does not alarm me. It did not scare me when I was young, and I thought at the time that this was because it was such a remote prospect. But now, at sixty, the fear has yet to arrive. I love life, but life is also struggle, suffering, pain. I think of death as akin to a well-earned rest.

Carlo Rovelli

Our fear of death seems to me to be an error of evolution. Many animals react instinctively with terror and flight at the approach of a predator. It is a healthy reaction, one that allows them to escape from danger. But it`s a terror that lasts an instant, not something that remains with them constantly. Natural selection has produced these big apes with hypertrophic frontal lobes, with an exaggerated ability to predict the future. It`s a prerogative that`s certainly useful but one that has placed before us a vision of our inevitable death, and this triggers the instinct of terror and flight. Basically, I believe that the fear of death is the result of an accidental and clumsy interference between two distinct evolutionary pressures - the product of bad automatic connections in our brain rather than something that has any use or meaning.

Carlo Rovelli

Fear is only inverted faith; it is faith in evil instead of good.

Florence Scovel Shinn

Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably can`t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie. Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays. an alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out.

Mitch Albom

I do not fear computers. I fear the lack of them.

Isaac Asimov
