On the plus side, death is one of the few things that can be done just as easily lying down.
One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end.
It is often said that before you die your life passes before your eyes. It is in fact true. It's called living.
Character building begins in our infancy, and continues until death.
There is nothing to fear but fear itself.
In the blackest of your moments, wait with no fear.
If we have been pleased with life, we should not be displeased with death, since it comes from the hand of the same master.
Many people would sooner die than think; In fact, they do so.
Death makes angels of us all and gives us wings where we had shoulders smooth as ravens claws.
Courage is not the absence of fear it is inspiring others to move beyond it.
In Heaven, all the interesting people are missing.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
Could any death be so horrible as birth? Or any decrepitude so awful as childhood in a happy united God-fearing family?
When you cease to make a contribution you begin to die.
If a man hasn't discovered something he will die for, he isn't fit to live.
Death and love are the two wings that bear the good man to heaven.
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.
The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be.
When you are grateful, fear disappears and abundance appears.
It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
