Fear

A man that flies from his fear may find that he has only taken a short cut to meet it. - J. R. R. Tolkien

Early and provident fear is the mother of safety. - Edmund Burke

Fear begins and ends with the desire to be secure; inward and outward security, with the desire to be certain, to have permanency. The continuity of permanence is sought in every direction, in virtue, in relationship, in action, in experience, in knowledge, in outward and inward things. To find security and be secure is the everlasting cry. It is this insistent demand that breeds fear. - Jiddu Krishnamurti

Fear flies through fancy's door. - Edward Counsel

Fear grows in darkness; if you think there's a bogeyman around, turn on the light. - Dorothy Thompson

Fear hath a numerous progeny. - Edward Counsel

Fear invites aggression – do not show it to a predator. - Brian Herbert & Kevin J. Anderson

Fear is a darkroom where negatives develop. - Usman B. Asif

Fear is a destructive emotion that can deal a fatal blow to any attempt on your part to build total self-confidence. If you allow your fears to run your life, it will be impossible to create the life you truly desire. - Robert Anthony

Fear is a distorting mirror in which anything can appear as a caricature of itself, stretched to terrible proportions; once inflamed, the imagination pursues the craziest and most unlikely possibilities. What is most absurd suddenly seems the most probable. - Stefan Zweig

Fear is a fantastic marketing tool. - Daniel Gardner

Fear is a great poseur. Men especially are loath to admit that they're scared, even to themselves. Instead they convert anxiety into more acceptable feelings (anger, usually). - Ralph Keyes

Fear is a message – sometimes helpful, sometimes not – but often conveying critical information about our beliefs, our needs, and our relationship to the world around us. - Harriet Lerner

Fear is a quicksand that slows and grips and strangles, leaving its victims unable to act, too timid to do what life requires. - Bob Lonsberry

Fear is a sneaky thief, stealing away precious moments of your life. - Elizabeth Lesser

Fear is an instructor of great sagacity, and the herald of all revolutions. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Fear is another emotion that is strongly suppressed. We cannot afford to be afraid, and so we don't allow ourselves to sense and feel the fear within us. We lower our brows to deny it, set our jaws to defy it, and smile to deceive ourselves. But inwardly we remain scared to death. - Alexander Lowen

Fear is contagious. You can catch it. - Neil Gaiman

Fear is good in small amounts, but when it is a constant companion, it cuts away at who you are and makes it hard to do what you know is right. - Christopher Paolini

Fear is never a good counsellor and victory over fear is the first spiritual duty of man. - Nicolas Berdyaev

Fear is pain arising from the anticipation of evil. - Aristotle
