Scared is what you’re feeling. Brave is what you’re doing.
Closing your eyes isn’t going to change anything. Nothing’s going to disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. In fact, things will even be worse the next time you open your eyes. That’s the kind of world we live in. Keep your eyes wide open. Only a coward closes his eyes. Closing your eyes and plugging up your ears won’t make time stand still.
The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.
It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.
Don’t be afraid of your fears. They’re not there to scare you. They’re there to let you know that something is worth it.
Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.
Today’s worries are yesterday’s fears and tomorrow’s stories.
Don’t be afraid of death; be afraid of an unlived life. You don’t have to live forever, you just have to live.
Everyone, at some point in their lives, wakes up in the middle of the night with the feeling that they are all alone in the world, and that nobody loves them now and that nobody will ever love them, and that they will never have a decent night’s sleep again and will spend their lives wandering blearily around a loveless landscape, hoping desperately that their circumstances will improve, but suspecting, in their heart of hearts, that they will remain unloved forever. The best thing to do in these circumstances is to wake somebody else up, so that they can feel this way, too.
There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that
something else is more important than fear.
Do one thing everyday that scares you.
Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
Anyone can hide. Facing up to things, working through them, that’s what makes you strong.
Fear of the Name increases fear of the thing its self.
