Quotations About Fear


“Fear is not real. The only place that fear can exist is in our thoughts of the future. It is a product of our imagination, causing us to fear things that do not at present and may not ever exist. That is near insanity. Do not misunderstand me - danger is very real but fear is a choice.”
- Will Smith (in the movie “After Earth”)

"Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure.  The fearful are caught as often as the bold."
- Helen Keller

"What is needed, rather than running away or controlling or suppressing or any other resistance, is understanding fear; that means, watch it, learn about it, come directly into contact with it.  We are to learn about fear, not how to escape from it."
- Jiddu Krishnamurti

“Do one thing every day that scares you.”
- Eleanor Roosevelt

“Bran thought about it. 'Can a man still be brave if he's afraid?'
'That is the only time a man can be brave,' his father told him."
- George R. R. Martin (in "Game of Thrones')

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that
something else is more important than fear.”
- Ambrose Redmoon

“Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.”
- Jim Morrison

"Have no fear of perfection - you'll never reach it."
- Salvador Dali

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

“It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.”
- Marcus Aurelius (in "Meditations")

"A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears."
- Michel de Montaigne (in "The Complete Essays")

"My life has been full of terrible misfortunes, most of which never happened."
- Michel de Montaigne

“Do the thing you fear and the death of fear is certain.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Many of our fears are tissue-paper thin, and a single courageous step would carry us clear through them."
- Brendan Francis

"I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear."
- Rosa Parks

"Fear has no brains; it is an idiot."
- Ambrose Bierce

"Fear sells. Fear makes money. The countless companies and consultants in the business of protecting the fearful from whatever they may fear know it only too well. The more fear, the better the sales."
- Daniel Gardner (in "The Science of Fear")

"The only way to get rid of the fear of doing something is to go out ... and do it."
- Susan J. Jeffers

"Fears are educated into us, and can, if we wish, be educated out."
- Karl Augustus Menninger
