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 better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.
If a man hasn't discovered something he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.
Don't give in to your fears. If you do, you won't be able to talk to your heart.
Every man's life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.
One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end.
Death may be the greatest of all human blessings.
If we have been pleased with life, we should not be displeased with death, since it comes from the hand of the same master.
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.
The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.
There is nothing to fear but fear itself.
The fear of criticism is at the bottom of the destruction of most ideas which never reach the planning and action stage.
The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
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.
When desire dies, fear is born.
It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.
Death and love are the two wings that bear the good man to heaven.
It is the cause, not the death, that makes the martyr.
When you cease to make a contribution you begin to die.
