The clouds dispell'd, the sky resum'd her light,
  And Nature stood recover'd of her fright.
    But fear, the last of ills, remain'd behind,
      And horrow heavy sat on every mind.
      - John Dryden, Theodore and Honoria (l. 336)

We are not apt to fear for the fearless, when we are companions in their danger.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross),
        The Mill on the Floss (bk. VII, ch. V)

If thy heart fails thee, climb not at all.
      - Elizabeth I, Worthies of England
         (vol. I, p. 419),

Do the thing you fear, and the death of fear is certain.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Fear is cruel and mean.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Fear is the instructor of great sagacity, and the herald of all revolutions.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

He has not learned the first lesson of life who does not everyday surmount a fear.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Man begins life helpless. The babe is in paroxysms of fear the moment its nurse leaves it alone, and it comes so slowly to any power of self-protection that mothers say the salvation of the life and health of a young child is a perpetual miracle.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Fear always springs from ignorance.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson, The American Scholar

We must be afraid of neither poverty nor exile nor imprisonment; of fear itself only should we be afraid.
      - Epictetus

Fear hath the common fault of a justice of peace, and is apt to conclude hastily from every slight circumstance, without examining the evidence on both sides.
      - Henry Fielding

Fear is the parent of cruelty.
      - James Anthony Froude,
        Short Studies on Great Subjects--Party Politics

Fear guides more to their duty than gratitude; for one man who is virtuous from the love of virtue, from the obligation he thinks he lies under to the Giver of all, there are ten thousand who are good only from their apprehension of punishment.
      - Oliver Goldsmith

Fear on guilt attends, and deeds of darkness;
  The virtuous breast ne'er knows it.
      - William Havard

Shun fear, it is the ague of the soul! a passion man created for himself--for sure that cramp of nature could not dwell in the warm realms of glory.
      - Aaron Hill

Fears are nothing more than a state of mind.
      - Napoleon Hill

There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.
      - Alfred Hitchcock

In human affairs, the best stimulus for running ahead is to have something we must run from.
      - Eric Hoffer

You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.
      - Eric Hoffer

Even when we do not create children's fears, when they come to us with fears ready-made and built-in, we use their fears as handles to manipulate them and get them to do what we want.
      - Sir John Holt

Many never think on God but in extremity of fear; and then, perplexity not suffering them to be idle, they think and do as it were in a frenzy.
      - Richard Hooker

I am frightened at seeing all the footprints directed towards thy den, and none returning.
  [Lat., Quia ne vestigia terrent
    Omnia te adversum spectantia, nulla retrosum.]
      - Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus),
        Epistles (I, 1, 74)

Fear is a dagger with which hypocrisy assassinates the soul.
      - Robert Green Ingersoll

You are uneasy, . . . you never sailed with me before, I see.
      - Andrew Jackson, Parton's Life of Jackson
         (vol. III, p. 493)

Fear, either as a principle or a motive, is the beginning of all evil.
      - Mrs. Anna Brownell Jameson
