Those linen cheeks of thine
  Are counsellors to fear.
      - William Shakespeare

When our actions do not,
  Our fears do make us traitors.
      - William Shakespeare

Such tricks hath strong imagination
  That, if it would but apprehend some joy,
    It comprehends some bringer of that joy;
      Or in the night, imagining some fear,
        How easy is a bush supposed a bear!
      - William Shakespeare,
        A Midsummer Night's Dream
         (Theseus at V, i)

It is a basilisk unto mine eye,
  Kills me to look on't.
      - William Shakespeare, Cymbeline
         (Posthumus at II, iv)

Be wary then; best safety lies in fear.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Laertes at I, iii)

It is the part of men to fear and tremble
  When the most mighty gods by tokens send
    Such dreadful heralds to astonish us.
      - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar
         (Casca at I, iii)

There is not such a word
  Spoke of in Scotland as this term of fear.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part I
         (Douglas at IV, i)

Thou tremblest, and the whiteness in thy cheek
  Is apter than thy tongue to tell thy errand.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Fourth, Part II
         (Northumberland at I, i)

If good, why do I yield to that suggestion
  Whose horrid image doth unfix my hair
    And make me seated heart knock at my ribs
      Against the use of nature? Present fears
        Are less than horrible imaginings.
      - William Shakespeare, Macbeth
         (Macbeth at I, iii)

Present fears
  Are less than horrible imaginings.
      - William Shakespeare, Macbeth
         (Macbeth at I, iii)

But let the frame of things disjoint, both the worlds suffer,
  Ere we will eat our meal in fear, and sleep
    In the affliction of these terrible dreams
      That shake us nightly.
      - William Shakespeare, Macbeth
         (Macbeth at III, ii)

Thou canst not say I did it. Never shake
  Thy gory locks at me.
      - William Shakespeare, Macbeth
         (Macbeth at III, iv)

You make me strange
  Even to the disposition that I owe,
    When now I think you can behold such sights
      And keep the natural ruby of your cheeks
        When mine is blanched with fear.
      - William Shakespeare, Macbeth
         (Macbeth at III, iv)

His flight was madness. When our actions do not,
  Our fears do make us traitors.
      - William Shakespeare, Macbeth
         (Lady Macduff at IV, ii)

'Tis time to fear, when tyrants seem to kiss.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Pericles Prince of Tyre
         (Pericles at I,ii)

I have a faint cold fear thrills through my veins
  That almost freezes up the heat of life.
      - William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet
         (Juliet at IV, iii)

Thou shalt be punished for thus frighting me,
  For I am sick and capable of fears,
    Oppressed with wrongs, and therefore full of fears,
      A widow, husbandless, subject to fears,
        A woman, naturally born to fears;
          And though thou now confess thou didst but jest,
            With my vexed spirits I cannot take a truce,
              But they will quake and tremble all this day.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life and Death of King John
         (Constance at III, i)

Things done well
  And with a care exempt themselves from fear;
    Things done without example, in their issue
      Are to be feared.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Life of King Henry the Eighth
         (King Henry at I, ii)

To fear the foe, since fear oppresseth strength,
  Gives, in your weakness, strength unto your foe,
    And so your follies fight against yourself.
      Fear, and be slain--so worse can come to fight;
        And fight and die is death destroying death,
          Where fearing dying pays death servile breath.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Second
         (Carlisle at III, ii)

Truly, the hearts of men are full of fear:
  You cannot reason (almost) with a man
    That looks not heavily and full of dread.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Second Citizen at II, iii)

No, so God help me, they spake not a word,
  But, like dumb statues or breathing stones,
    Stared each on other, and looked deadly pale.
      - William Shakespeare,
        The Tragedy of King Richard the Third
         (Buckingham at III, vii)

In this world there is always danger for those who are afraid of it.
      - George Bernard Shaw

The slave of fear: the worst of slaveries.
      - George Bernard Shaw, Misalliance

Fear is far more painful to cowardice than death to true courage.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)

Fearfulness, contrary to all other vices, maketh a man think the better of another, the worse of himself.
      - Sir Philip Sidney (Sydney)
