Martin Luther King, Jr. Quotes about fear
#1096 Bertrand Russell

In the revolt against idealism, the ambiguities of the word “experience” have been perceived, with the result that realists have more and more avoided the word. It is to be feared, however, that if the word is avoided the confusions of thought with which it has been associated may persist. .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about fear
#1110 Bertrand Russell

No man is liberated from fear who dare not see his place in the world as it is; no man can achieve the greatness of which he is capable until he has allowed himself to see his own littleness. .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about fear
#1323 Bertrand Russell

I wish to propose for the reader's favourable consideration a doctrine which may, I fear, appear wildly paradoxical and subversive. The doctrine in question is this: that it is undesirable to believe a proposition when there is no ground whatever for supposing it true. .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about fear
#1417 Bertrand Russell

Acquisitiveness – the wish to possess as much as possible of goods, or the title to goods – is a motive which, I suppose, has its origin in a combination of fear with the desire for necessaries. .

Bertrand Russell Quotes about fear
#1798 Jean Paul Sartre

Fear? If I have gained anything by damning myself, it is that I no longer have anything to fear. .

Jean Paul Sartre Quotes about fear
#2054 Ambrose Bierce

The most offensive egotist is he that fears to say "I" and "me." "It will probably rain "—that is dogmatic. "I think it will rain"—that is natural and modest. Montaigne is the most delightful of essayists because so great is his humility that he does not think it important that we see not Montaigne. He so forgets himself that he employs no artifice to make us forget him. .

Ambrose Bierce Quotes about fear
#2512 Winston Churchill

What is the true and original root of Dutch aversion to British rule? It is the abiding fear and hatred of the movement that seeks to place the native on a level with the white man ... the Kaffir is to be declared the brother of the European, to be constituted his legal equal, to be armed with political rights. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about fear
#2529 Winston Churchill

The Great War differed from all ancient wars in the immense power of the combatants and their fearful agencies of destruction, and from all modern wars in the utter ruthlessness with which it was fought. ... Europe and large parts of Asia and Africa became one vast battlefield on which after years of struggle not armies but nations broke and ran. When all was over, Torture and Cannibalism were the only two expedients that the civilized, scientific, Christian States had been able to deny themselves: and they were of doubtful utility. .

Winston Churchill Quotes about fear
#2763 Napoleon I of France

A cowardly act! What do I care about that? You may be sure that I should never fear to commit one if it were to my advantage. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about fear
#2773 Napoleon I of France

He who fears being conquered is certain of defeat. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about fear
#2794 Napoleon I of France

There are only two forces that unite men — fear and interest. All great revolutions originate in fear, for the play of interests does not lead to accomplishment. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about fear
#2849 Napoleon I of France

Parties weaken themselves by their fear of capable men. .

Napoleon I of France Quotes about fear
#3057 Macbeth

Glamis thou art, and Cawdor; and shalt be What thou art promised. Yet do I fear thy nature; It is too full o' the milk of human kindness To catch the nearest way: thou wouldst be great; Art not without ambition; but without The illness should attend it. .

Macbeth Quotes about fear
#3249 Henry Ford

Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently. There is no disgrace in honest failure; there is disgrace in fearing to fail. .

Henry Ford Quotes about fear
#3470 George Bernard Shaw

I make no vows. I take my chance. ... It means that I fearas you fear uncertainty. It means that nothing is certain but uncertainty. If I bind the future I bind my will. If I bind my will I strangle creation. .

George Bernard Shaw Quotes about fear
#3502 George Bernard Shaw

Law is blind without counsel. The counsel men agree with is vain: it is only the echo of their own voices. A million echoes will not help you to rule righteously. But he who does not fear you and shews you the other side is a pearl of the greatest price. Slay me and you go blind to your damnation. The greatest of God's names is Counsellor; and when your Empire is dust and your name a byword among the nations the temples of the living God shall still ring with his praise as Wonderful! Counsellor! the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace. .

George Bernard Shaw Quotes about fear
#3789 Aristotle

Francis Bacon Quotes about fear

Francis Bacon Quotes about fear
#4353 Confucius

When you have faults, do not fear to abandon them. .

Confucius Quotes about fear
#4573 Ralph Waldo Emerson

In the Will work and acquire, and thou hast chained the wheel of Chance, and shalt sit hereafter out of fear from her rotations. A political victory, a rise of rents, the recovery of your sick, or the return of your absent friend, or some other favorable event, raises your spirits, and you think good days are preparing for you. Do not believe it. Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about fear
#4815 Ralph Waldo Emerson

Too busy with the crowded hour to fear to live or die. .

Ralph Waldo Emerson Quotes about fear
#4966 Dwight D. Eisenhower

The purpose of the United States, in stating these proposals, is simple. [...] They aspire to this: the lifting, from the backs and from the hearts of men, of their burden of arms and of fears, so that they may find before them a golden age of freedom and of peace. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about fear
#4982 Dwight D. Eisenhower

This world of ours, ever growing smaller, must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be, instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about fear
#4989 Dwight D. Eisenhower

During the long lane of the history yet to be written, America knows that this world of ours, ever growing smaller, must avoid becoming a community of dreadful fear and hate, and be, instead, a proud confederation of mutual trust and respect. Such a confederation must be one of equals. The weakest must come to the conference table with the same confidence as do we, protected as we are by our moral, economic, and military strength. That table, though scarred by many past frustrations, cannot be abandoned for the certain agony of the battlefield. .

Dwight D. Eisenhower Quotes about fear
#5520 Deng Xiaoping

We mustn't fear to adopt the advanced management methods applied in capitalist countries (...) The very essence of socialism is the liberation and development of the productive systems (...) Socialism and market economy are not incompatible (...) We should be concerned about right-wing deviations, but most of all, we must be concerned about left-wing deviations. .

Deng Xiaoping Quotes about fear
#6029 Robert H. Jackson

Government of limited power need not be anemic government. Assurance that rights are secure tends to diminish fear and jealousy of strong government, and by making us feel safe to live under it makes for its better support. .

Robert H. Jackson Quotes about fear
#6168 Clarence Darrow

No nation can be really great that is held together by Gatling guns, and no true loyalty can be induced and kept through fear. p. 40 .

Clarence Darrow Quotes about fear
#6193 E. B. White

Advertisers are the interpreters of our dreams —interpreting for Pharaoh. Like the movies, they infect the routine futility of our days with purposeful adventure. Their weapons are our weaknesses: fear, ambition, illness, pride, selfishness, desire, ignorance. And these weapons must be kept as bright as a sword. .

E. B. White Quotes about fear
#6203 E. B. White

I am a member of a party of one, and I live in an age of fear. Nothing lately has unsettled my party and raised my fears so much as your editorial, on Thanksgiving Day, suggesting that employees should be required to state their beliefs in order to hold their jobs. The idea is inconsistent with our constitutional theory and has been stubbornly opposed by watchful men since the early days of the Republic. .

E. B. White Quotes about fear
#6235 E. B. White

A despot doesn't fear eloquent writers preaching freedom—he fears a drunken poet who may crack a joke that will take hold. .

E. B. White Quotes about fear
#6240 E. B. White

Children are demanding. They are the most attentive, curious, eager, observant, sensitive, quick, and generally congenial readers on earth. They accept, almost without question, anything you present them with, as long as it is presented honestly, fearlessly, and clearly. .

E. B. White Quotes about fear
#6283 Henry David Thoreau

Nothing is so much to be feared as fear. Atheism may comparatively be popular with God himself. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about fear
#6292 Henry David Thoreau

Nothing is so much to be feared as .may comparatively be popular withhimself. .

Henry David Thoreau Quotes about fear
#6597 Charles A. Beard

Let us put aside resolutely that great fright, tenderly and without malice, daring to be wrong in something important rather than right in some meticulous banality, fearing no evil while the mind is free to search, imagine, and conclude, inviting our countrymen to try other instruments than coercion and suppression in the effort to meet destiny with triumph, genially suspecting that no creed yet calendared in the annals of politics mirrors the doomful possibilities of infinity. .

Charles A. Beard Quotes about fear
#6800 Adlai Stevenson

The tragedy of our day is the climate of fear in which we live, and fear breeds repression. Too often sinister threats to the bill of rights, to freedom of the mind, are concealed under the patriotic cloak, of anti-communism. .

Adlai Stevenson Quotes about fear
#6814 Adlai Stevenson

To remember the loneliness, the fear and the insecurity of men who once had to walk alone in huge factories, beside huge machines—to realize that labor unions have meant new dignity and pride to millions of our countrymen—human companionship on the job, and music in the home—to be able to see what larger pay checks mean, not to a man as an employee, but as a husband and as a father—to know these things is to understand what American labor means. .

Adlai Stevenson Quotes about fear
#6928 Charles de Gaulle

"A foreign military leader whose daring was feared by those who profited by it." De Gaulle said that MacArthur's critics should "pay deserved tribute to the legendary service of a great soldier". .

Charles de Gaulle Quotes about fear
#7023 Albert Camus

There is but one moral code that the absurd man can accept, the one that is not separated from God: the one that is dictated ... I start out here from the principle of his innocence. That innocence is to be feared. .

Albert Camus Quotes about fear
#7027 Albert Camus

There can be no question of holding forth on ethics. I have seen people behave badly with great morality and I note every day that integrity has no need of rules. There is but one moral code that the absurd man can accept, the one that is not separated from God: the one that is dictated. But it so happens that he lives outside that God. As for the others (I mean also immoralism), the absurd man sees nothing in them but justifications and he has nothing to justify. I start out here from the principle of his innocence. That innocence is to be feared. "Everything is permitted," exclaims Ivan Karamazov. That, too, smacks of the absurd. But on condition that it not be taken in a vulgar sense. I don't know whether or not it has been sufficiently pointed out that it is not an outburst of relief or of joy, but rather a bitter acknowledgment of a fact. .

Albert Camus Quotes about fear
#7281 Leo Tolstoy

He knew she was there by the joy and fear that overwhelmed his heart. .

Leo Tolstoy Quotes about fear
#7339 Leo Tolstoy

Some teachers of mankind — as ... the first Christians, the orthodox Muslims, and the Buddhists — have gone so far as to repudiate art. ...[They consider it] so highly dangerous in its power to infect people against their wills, that mankind will lose far less by banishing all art than by tolerating each and every art. ...such people were wrong in repudiating all art, for they denied that which cannot be denied — one of the indispensable means of communication, without which mankind could not exist. ...Now there is only fear, lest we should be deprived of any pleasures art can afford, so any type of art is patronized. And I think the last error is much grosser than the first and that its consequences are far more harmful. .

Leo Tolstoy Quotes about fear
#7567 P. J. O'Rourke

Remember, FDA employees are serious about fear. We pay these people to panic about an iota of rodent hair in our chili, even when the recipe calls for it. FDA employees are first-class agonizers, world champions at losing sleep. When Meryl Streep got hysterical about Alar, they actually checked the apples instead of Meryl's head. .

P. J. O'Rourke Quotes about fear
#7576 P. J. O'Rourke

Traffic was like a bad dog. It wasn't important to look both ways when crossing the street; it was important to not show fear. .

P. J. O'Rourke Quotes about fear
#8167 H. L. Mencken

Public opinion, in its raw state, gushes out in the immemorial form of the mob's fear. It is piped into central factories, and there it is flavoured and coloured and put into cans. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about fear
#8245 H. L. Mencken

Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about fear
#8276 H. L. Mencken

Though the theology of Christianity had thus sunk to the lowly estate of a mere delusion of the rabble, propagated on that level by the ancient caste of sacerdotal parasites, the ethics of Christianity continued to enjoy the utmost acceptance, and perhaps even more acceptance than ever before. It seemed to be generally felt, in fact, that they simply must be saved from the wreck—that the world would vanish into chaos if they went the way of the revelations supporting them. In this fear a great many judicious men joined, and so there arose what was, in essence, an absolutely new Christian cult—a cult, to wit, purged of all the supernaturalism superimposed upon the older cult by generations of theologians, and harking back to what was conceived to be the pure ethical doctrine of Jesus. .

H. L. Mencken Quotes about fear
#8291 Richard Nixon

Now, some may ask why we don't get rid of the bases, since the Soviet Government declares today that it has only peaceful intentions. The answer is that whenever the fear and suspicions that caused us and our Allies to take measures for collective self-defense are removed, the reason for our maintaining bases will be removed. In other words, the only possible solution of this problem lies in mutual, rather than unilateral action leading toward disarmament. .

Richard Nixon Quotes about fear
#8378 Samuel Adams

It is the greatest absurdity to suppose it in the power of one, or any number of men, at the entering into society, to renounce their essential natural rights, or the means of preserving those rights; when the grand end of civil government, from the very nature of its institution, is for the support, protection, and defence of those very rights; the principal of which, as is before observed, are Life, Liberty, and Property. If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation. The right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave. .

Samuel Adams Quotes about fear
