      - Mrs. Anna Brownell Jameson

Fear is implanted in us as a preservative from evil.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Fear naturally quickens the flight of guilt.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

The weakness we lament, ourselves create.
  Instructed from our infant years to court,
    With counterfeited fears, the aid of man,
      We learn to shudder at the rustling breeze,
        Start at the light, and tremble in the dark,
          Till affectation, rip'ning to belief
            And folly, frighted at our own chimeras,
              Habitual cowardice usurps the soul.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Timidity is a disease of the mind, obstinate and fatal; for a man once persuaded that any impediment is insuperable has given it, with respect to himself, that strength and weight which it had not before.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature")

Shame arises from the fear of men, conscience from the fear of God.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature"),
        Recollections of Johnson,
        From Miss Reynolds

If fear is cultivated it will become stronger, if faith is cultivated it will achieve mastery.
      - John Paul Jones

Fear loves the idea of danger.
      - Joseph Joubert

The only inheritance I have received from my ancestors is a soul incapable of fear.
      - Julian (Flavius Claudius Julianus)("The Apostate")

Noiseless as fear in a wide wilderness.
      - John Keats (1)

Let us never negotiate out of fear, but let us never fear to negotiate.
      - John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.
      - John Fitzgerald Kennedy,

We should not let our fears hold us back from pursuing our hopes.
      - John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Of all the liars in the world, sometimes the worst are your own fears.
      - Rudyard Kipling

From a distance it is something; and nearby it is nothing.
  [Fr., De loin, c'est quelque chose; et de pres, ce n'est rien.]

No one but a poltroon will boast that he never was afraid.

Defeat the fear of death and welcome the death of fear.
      - G. Gordon Liddy

Apprehensions are greater in proportion as things are unknown.
  [Lat., Major ignotarum rerum est terror.]
      - Titus Livy, Annales (XXVIII, 44)

O, fear not in a world like this,
  And thou shalt know ere long,--
    Know how sublime a thing it is
      To suffer and be strong.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Oh, fear not in a world like this,
  And thou shalt know ere long,--
    Know how sublime a thing it is
      To suffer and be strong.
      - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow,

They are slaves who fear to speak
  For the fallen and the weak;

      They are slaves who dare not be
        In the right with two or three.
