Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.

I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.

Fear is the enemy of creativity and innovation and of starting things. The resistance hates those things—they are risky, they might not work, so the resistance pushes us not to do them.

I have accepted fear as part of life – specifically the fear of change… I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: turn back

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.' We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Let everything happen to you: beauty and terror.

Monsters exist, but they are too few in numbers to be truly dangerous. More dangerous are [those] ready to believe and act without asking questions.

Anger is very natural. It comes out of fear, it comes out of dishonour, it’s a reaction to anything that threatens us and it’s addictive. To forgive and say, I’m going to let it go, give it to the higher power, whatever we call it, and then find something good in it, it’s not an easy process.

Don`t be afraid to take a big step when one is indicated. You can`t cross a chasm in two small steps.

I will waste my heart on fear no more.

Fear is a Natural reaction to moving closer to the truth.

The only real prison is fear, and the only real freedom is freedom from fear.

Everything you've ever wanted is on the other side of fear.

Don’t be afraid to be afraid or appalled to be appalled. How do you think the trees feel these days, or the whales, or, for that matter, most humans?

Nothing in life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I've lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." You must do the thing you think you cannot do.

How can you defy fear? Fear is a human instinct, just like hunger. Whether you like it or not, you become hungry. Similarly with fear. But I have learned to train myself to live with this fear. Human rights is a universal standard. It is a component of every religion and every civilization.
