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.
Could any death be so horrible as birth? Or any decrepitude so awful as childhood in a happy united God-fearing family?
Death makes angels of us all and gives us wings where we had shoulders smooth as ravens claws.
It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It's called living.
I'm the one that has to die when it's time for me to die, so let me live my life, the way I want to.
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.
If you don't know how to live, why wonder about death?
The fear of criticism is at the bottom of the destruction of most ideas which never reach the planning and action stage.
No power is strong enough to be lasting if it labors under the weight of fear.
Its better to burn out than fade away.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
Where there is no freedom, there is death and destruction.
Absolute silence leads to sadness. It is the image of death.
Fear not death for the sooner we die, the longer we shall be immortal.
It is the cause, not the death, that makes the martyr.
You can only be afraid of what you think you know.
Tell your friend that in his death, a part of you dies and goes with him. Wherever he goes, you also go. He will not be alone.
Death, so called, is a thing which makes men weep, And yet a third of life is pass'd in sleep.
On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. And the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn.
There is no hope unmingled with fear, and no fear unmingled with hope.
