A man who fears suffering is already suffering from what he fears.
A man who is not afraid is not aggressive, a man who has no sense of fear of any kind is really a free, a peaceful man.
Death, so called, is a thing which makes men weep, And yet a third of life is pass'd in sleep.
Pride is an admission of weakness; it secretly fears all competition and dreads all rivals.
Absolute silence leads to sadness. It is the image of death.
Could any death be so horrible as birth? Or any decrepitude so awful as childhood in a happy united God-fearing family?
The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It's called living.
If we have been pleased with life, we should not be displeased with death, since it comes from the hand of the same master.
I believe that every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear.
It is the cause, not the death, that makes the martyr.
Fear is pain arising from the anticipation of evil.
An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind.
Death is caused by swallowing small amounts of saliva over a long period of time.
A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it.
It's stasis that kills you off in the end, not ambition.
We should never negotiate out of fear, but we should never fear to negotiate.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
My feet is my only courage
When you cease to make a contribution you begin to die.
