Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity.
If you don't know how to live, why wonder about death?
Fear is not an unknown emotion to us.
You can conquer almost any fear if you will only make up your mind to do so. For remember, fear doesn't exist anywhere except in the mind.
Its better to burn out than fade away.
Where there is no freedom, there is death and destruction.
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.
He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.
A coward dies a thousand deaths... a soldier dies but once.
When you cease to make a contribution you begin to die.
No one really knows why they are alive until they know what they'd die for.
It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It's called living.
Could any death be so horrible as birth? Or any decrepitude so awful as childhood in a happy united God-fearing family?
It's not that I'm afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
Death may be the greatest of all human blessings.
Life and death are one thread, the same line viewed from different sides.
It's stasis that kills you off in the end, not ambition.
If you die you're completely happy and your soul somewhere lives on. Im not afraid of dying. Total peace after death, becoming someone else is the best hope I've got.
Fear is pain arising from the anticipation of evil.
If we have been pleased with life, we should not be displeased with death, since it comes from the hand of the same master.
A thing is not necessarily true because a man dies for it.
