Speechless with wonder and half dead with fear.
      - Joseph Addison

Were a man's sorrows and disquietudes summed up at the end of his life, it would generally be found that he had suffered more from the apprehension of such evils as never happened to him than from those evils which had really befallen him.
      - Joseph Addison

What can that man fear who takes care to please a Being that is able to crush all his adversaries?
      - Joseph Addison

Excessive fear is always powerless.
      - Aeschylus

Fear is a disease that eats away at logic and makes man inhuman.
      - Marian Anderson

No one loves the man whom he fears.
      - Aristotle

Many men affect to despise fear, and in preaching resent any appeal to it; but not to fear when there is occasion is as great a weakness as to fear unduly without reason. God implanted fear in the soul as truly as He implanted hope or courage.
      - James H. Aughey

It is tormenting to fear what you cannot overcome.
  [Lat., Crux est si metuas quod vincere nequeas.]
      - Decimus Magnus Ausonius,
        Septem Sapientum Sententioe Septenis Versibus Explicatoe
         (VII, 4)

Nothing is to be feared but fear.
      - Francis Bacon

To grief there is a limit; not so to fear.
      - Francis Bacon

To suffering there is a limit; to fearing, none.
      - Francis Bacon

The brave man is not he who feels no fear,
  For that were stupid and irrational;
    But he, whose noble soul its fear subdues,
      And bravely dares the danger nature shrinks from.
      - Joanna Baillie, Basil
         (act III, sc. 1, l. 151)

Noble hearts are neither jealous nor afraid because jealousy spells doubt and fear spells pettiness.
      - Honore de Balzac

The fears of one class of men are not the measure of the rights of another.
      - George Bancroft

An aching tooth is better out than in,
  To lose a rotten member is a gain.
      - Richard Baxter, Hypocrisy

Dangers bring fears, and fears more dangers bring.
      - Richard Baxter,
        Love Breathing Thanks and Praise

God planted fear in the soul as truly as He planted hope or courage. Fear is a kind of bell, or gong, which rings the mind into quick life and avoidance upon the approach of danger. It is the soul's signal for rallying.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Fear not: for I am with thee: I will bring thy seed from the east, and gather thee from the west;
  I will say to the north, Give up; and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far, and my daughters from the ends of the earth;
    Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.
      - Bible, Isaiah (ch. XLIII, v. 5-7)

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
      - Bible, Psalms (ch. CXI, v. 10)

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
      - Bible, Psalms (ch. XXVII, v. 1)

I know a lot of men who are healthier at age fifty than they have ever been before, because a lot of their fear is gone.
      - Robert Bly

Good men have the fewest fears. He has but one great fear who fears to do wrong; he has a thousand who has overcome it.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

He has but one great fear that fears to do wrong.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

There is great beauty in going through life fearlessly. Half our fears are baseless, the other half discreditable.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

Fear never was a friend to the love of God or man, to duty or conscience, truth, probity, or honor. It therefore can ever make a good subject, a good citizen, or a good soldier, and, least of all, a good Christian; except the devils, who believe and tremble, are to be accounted good Christians.
      - Henry Brooke
