horror

A Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt on fear and horror

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

Eleanor Roosevelt (1884 - 1962)

A Quote by Frank Salvato on reality, political correctness, generation, horror, war, sacrifice, humanity, and compromise

In this post-reality world of the politically incorrect, we witness a generation that has absolutely no idea of the true horrors of war; the sacrifice needed to win and the reality of the fact that in war, people die and humanity is sometimes compromised in the quest to preserve humanity.

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on ignorance, death, disgust, horror, sick, illness, health, intoxication, old, age, knowledge, empathy, compassion, understanding, and youth

When ignorant people see someone who is old, they are disgusted and horrified, even though they too will be old some day.  I thought to myself:  I don't want to be like the ignorant people.  After that, I couldn't feel the usual intoxication with youth anymore.

When ignorant people see someone who is sick, they are disgusted and horrified, even though they too will be sick some day.  I thought to myself:  I don't want to be like the ignorant people.  After that, I couldn't feel the usual intoxication with health anymore.

When ignorant people see someone who is dead, they are disgusted and horrified, even thought they too will be dead some day.  I thought to myself:  I don't want to be like the ignorant people.  After then, I couldn't feel the usual intoxication with life anymore
