fear

A Quote by Cus D'Amato on cowardice, fear, heroism, and projects

The hero and the coward both feel the same thing, but the hero uses his fear, projects it onto his opponent, while the coward runs. It's the same thing, fear, but it's what you do with it that matters.

A Quote by C.W. Hulme on animals, conventionality, day, fear, hunger, literature, suffering, words, and writing

To this day the more conventional biologists suffer from an obsessional fear of anthropomorphism, and even put such words as "hunger" and "fear" between quotes (a literary solecism in any case) when writing about animals. The quotes are a way of saying "I cannot get on without Anthropomorphism, but I am ashamed to be seen with her in public".

C.W. Hulme (1886 - 1981)

A Quote by Christopher Columbus on belief, fear, goodness, people, and power

And they know neither sect nor idolatry, with the exception that all believe that the source of all power and goodness is in the sky, and they believe very firmly that I, with these ships and people, came from the sky, and in this belief they everywhere received me, after they had overcome their fear.

Christopher Columbus (1451 - 1506)

A Quote by Christopher Columbus on belief, fear, giving, losing, love, and sharing

It is true that after they have been reassured and have lost this fear, they are so artless and so free with all they possess, that no one would believe it without having seen it. Of anything they have, if you ask them for it, they never say no; rather they invite the person to share it, and show as much love as if they were giving their hearts. This letter, the first and rarest of all printed Americana, describes the scenery and the natives of Hispaniola.

Since fear is mostly about ignorance, the best part is that it's as temporary as you choose.

A Quote by Christian Nestell Bovée on bravery, courage, cowardice, fear, and timidity

Courage enlarges, cowardice diminishes resources. In desperate straits the fears of the timid aggravate the dangers that imperil the brave.

A Quote by Charles Wesley on anticipation, belief, charm, christ, death, earth, fear, god, grace, health, heaven, humility, jesus, life, listening, love, music, peace, power, and praise

Oh for a thousand tongues to sing my great Redeemer's praise, the glories of my God and King, the triumphs of his grace! My gracious Master and my God, assist me to proclaim, to spread through all the earth abroad the honors of thy name. Jesus! the name that charms our fears, that bids our sorrows cease; 'tis music in the sinner's ears, 'tis life, and health, and peace. He breaks the power of canceled sin, he sets the prisoner free; his blood can make the foulest clean; his blood availed for me. He speaks, and listening to his voice, new life the dead receive; the mournful, broken hearts rejoice, the humble poor believe. In Christ, your head, you then shall know, shall feel your sins forgiven, anticipate your heaven below, and own that love in heaven.

Charles Wesley (1707 - 1788)

A Quote by Charles Taylor on america, behavior, crime, day, death, disobedience, fear, obedience, people, problems, punishment, and work

Will corporal punishment help restrain criminal behavior? Some well-intentioned experts say no. But one group that disagrees with these experts is the criminals themselves. Criminals know that punishment works, and they use it every day all over America. Criminals demand absolute obedience, and if corporal punishment doesn't work, then they will use capital punishment, for they know that the fear of death is the best deterrent for disobedience. Even the experts tell us that when being attacked by a criminal, obey him- because to resist may bring even more punishment. So does punishment work? It sure does. The problem is the wrong people are being punished
