What is fear? 6 quotes to put it into perspective

What is fear? Often we can be paralysed by fear and yet it is only the body’s natural mechanism for heightening our sense of awareness in times of potential danger. It sharpens our sense of the risks involved in given situations. By definition risk is simply the possibility of an outcome we really don’t want.

However risk and reward have a direct correlation. No risk; no reward. Yes, by taking a risk, you might end up with an undesirable outcome but equally you might just achieve a desirable prize.

Our sense of fear should make us tread carefully of course but it shouldn’t stop us treading at all. It’s all about weighing up the percentages and taking a sensible approach to any given situation. Avoiding unnecessary risks but taking calculated risks.

If we are to be successful, we must face up to our fear. We must recognise the reason for our fear but that fear should not control us. We should control the fear. We should feel the fear but do it anyway.

Never let fear stop you having a go. The alternative would be to look back with regret at what might have been. And who wants that?

It’s better to be someone who can look themselves in the eye and know they always gave it their best shot regardless of how they were feeling at the time.

Here are 6 quotes to help you put fear into perspective.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. ~Franklin D. Roosevelt

Thinking will not overcome fear but action will. ~W. Clement Stone

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown. ~H.P. Lovecraft

I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear. ~Rosa Parks

Always do what you are afraid to do. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live. ~Dorothy Thompson

21 thought-provoking quotes about ignorance

To be ignorant, one lacks education and knowledge. Therefore ignorance implies a lack of awareness. Additionally it means that we are unaware of information and facts. Also it means we lack an understanding and/or appreciation of other people and their ways. It can also mean that we deliberately ignore or disregard what’s going on around us and the impact of our actions on other people and society. It can also imply technical ignorance whereby we’re unaware of how some is done or should be done. Here are 21 thought provoking quotes about ignorance to help you reflect on its significance.

Being ignorant reflects badly on us generally and it should never be seen as a ‘badge of honour’. Ignorance goes together with stupidity, and that’s not something of which we can be proud. The cure for ignorance is education and that is a lifelong process. You don’t have to go to college or university but you must educate yourself constantly, to hone your skills and avoid making stupid mistakes through ignorance.

Investing in your own education throughout life will pay the best dividends.

  20. Where ignorance is our master, there is no possibility of real peace. ~Dalai Lama
  21. Democracy is a pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance. ~H.L. Mencken

  1. Say yes and you’ll figure it out afterwards. ~Tina Fey
  2. Confidence is 10% hard work and 90% delusion. ~Tina Fey

  9. For my first show at SNL, I wrote a Bill Clinton sketch, and during our read-through, it wasn’t getting any laughs.

  14. It is an impressively arrogant move to conclude that just because you don’t like something, it is empirically not good. I don’t like Chinese food, but I don’t write articles trying to prove it doesn’t exist. ~Tina Fey
  15. This is what I tell young women who ask me for career advice. People are going to try to trick you. To make you feel that you are in competition with one another. “You’re up for a promotion. If they go for a woman, it’ll be between you and Barbara.” Don’t be fooled. You’re not in competition with other women. You’re in competition with everyone. ~Tina Fey
