Courage is more exhilarating than fear and in the long run it is easier. We do not have to become heroes overnight. Just a step at a time, meeting each thing that comes up, seeing it is not as dreadful as it appeared, discovering we have the strength to stare it down.
We are afraid to care too much, for fear that the other person does not care at all.
God, make me so uncomfortable that I will do the very thing I fear.
The greatest gift is not being afraid to question.
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.
- Bruce Lee
The components of anxiety, stress, fear, and anger do not exist independently of you in the world. They simply do not exist in the physical world, even though we talk about them as if they do.
- Wayne Dyer
Fears are nothing more than a state of mind.
- Napoleon Hill
If you know the enemy and know yourself you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.
- Sun Tzu
Prohibit the taking of omens, and do away with superstitious doubts. Then, until death itself comes, no calamity need be feared.
- Sun Tzu
The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you, depend on no one. Only the moment you reject all help are you freed.
- Swami Vivekananda
