A Quote by David Bohm on fear, thought, and mind

The system [of thought] doesn't stay with the difficult problem that produces unpleasant feelings.  It's conditioned somehow to move as fast as it can toward more pleasant feelings, without actually facing the thing that's making the unpleasant feeling.

A Quote by Sumner Davenport on fear, ideas, vision, resilliance self investment, and self help


Never fear having your ideas stolen. Your creative idea is a image you are painting like a picture on a canvas, they may "steal" your idea, however they cannot steal your paints.

A Quote by Sumner Davenport on fear, criticism, personal growth, and support


When you grow and rise above the masses, you will always become a target. Just as the flower grows above the grass, it becomes a target for the nourishment of the rays of sunshine, it also becomes a target to be cut down.

A Quote by Lama Thubten Yeshe on fear, insecurity, religion, open, fundamentalism, integrate, life, and meaningful

Some people live closely guarded lives, fearful of encountering someone or something that might shatter their insecure spiritual foundation. This attitude, however, is not the fault of religion but of their own limited understanding. True Dharma leads in exactly the opposite direction. It enables one to integrate all the many diverse experiences of life into a meaningful and coherent whole, thereby banishing fear and insecurity completely.

A Quote by Midnight Blue on courage, fear, hero, and coward

Every act of courage was, in some way, driven by fear. Fear of failure, fear of loss, fear for the safety of loved ones, fear of ridicule, fear of pain -- even the fear of fear itself. Thus, every hero -- every champion -- was also a coward. And conversely, every coward had the seeds of a hero within them."
