If you are afraid of being lonely, don't try to be right.
The fear of criticism is at the bottom of the destruction of most ideas which never reach the planning and action stage.
I believe that every single event in life happens in an opportunity to choose love over fear.
Don't give in to your fears. If you do, you won't be able to talk to your heart.
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.
One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end.
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.
It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It's called living.
Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.
Our strength lies in our intensive attacks and our barbarity...After all, who today remembers the genocide of the Armenians?
It's not that I'm afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens.
No power is strong enough to be lasting if it labors under the weight of fear.
No one really knows why they are alive until they know what they'd die for.
Fear is not an unknown emotion to us.
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.
Could any death be so horrible as birth? Or any decrepitude so awful as childhood in a happy united God-fearing family?
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.
If you don't know how to live, why wonder about death?
It's stasis that kills you off in the end, not ambition.
There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.
A single death is a tragedy; a million deaths is a statistic.
