A Quote by Aldous Leonard Huxley on country, depression, and fear

The thing that impresses me most about this country is its hopefulness. It is this which distinguishes it from Europe, where there is hopeless depression and fear.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on fear, insecurity, men, misery, pain, and satisfaction

If men as individuals surrender to the call of their elementary instincts, avoiding pain and seeking satisfaction only for their own selves, the result for them all taken together must be a state of insecurity, of fear, and of promiscuous misery.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on atoms, fear, energy, order, present, and time

. . . Since I do not foresee that atomic energy is to be a great boon for a long time, I have to say that for the present it is a menace. Perhaps it is well that it should b e. It may intimidate the human race into bringing order into its international affairs, which without the pressure of fear, it would not do.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on beauty, existence, fear, feeling, knowledge, life, mystery, religion, and wisdom

The insight into the mystery of life, coupled though it be with fear, has also given rise to religion. To know what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as the highest wisdom and the most radiant beauty, which our dull faculties can comprehend only in their most primitive forms - this knowledge, this feeling is at the center of true religiousness.

A Quote by Albert Einstein on behavior, death, education, ethics, fear, hope, punishment, religion, reward, and sympathy

A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.

A Quote by Alan Watts on fear, future, guilt, heart, justice, life, love, planning, and work

No work of love will flourish out of guilt, fear, or hollowness of heart, just as no valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.
