Thoughts for Thursday: Fear

Thoughts for Thursday is a new feature hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

In honor of the coming holiday, this week's theme is Fear (For even more quotes, visit my other blog.)

"Fear is met and destroyed with courage."--James F. Bell
"Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity."--Paulo Coelho, Alchemist
"We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light."--Plato
"Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here."--Marianne Williamson
"My 'fear' is my substance, and probably the best part of me."--Franz Kafka
"Curiosity will conquer fear even more than bravery will."--James Stephens
