Top Unknown Fear Quotes

Unknown Fear Quotes By Lailah Gifty Akita

Do not let the fear of unknown deter you from trying.
Keep trying until you succeed. — Lailah Gifty Akita

Unknown Fear Quotes By John Steinbeck

Oh, we can populate the dark with horrors, even we who think ourselves informed and sure, believing nothing we cannot measure or weigh. I knew beyond all doubt that the dark things crowding in on me either did not exist or were not dangerous to me, and still I was afraid. I thought how terrible the nights must have been in a time when men knew the things were there and were deadly. But no, that's wrong. If I knew they were there, I would have weapons against them, charms, prayers, some kind of alliance with forces equally strong but on my side. Knowing they were not there made me defenseless against them and perhaps more afraid. — John Steinbeck

Unknown Fear Quotes By Alan W. Watts

This, then, is the human problem: there is a price to be paid for every increase in consciousness. We cannot be more sensitive to pleasure without being more sensitive to pain. By remembering the past we can plan for the future. But the ability to plan for the future is offset by the "ability" to dread pain and to fear of the unknown. Furthermore, the growth of an acute sense of the past and future gives us a corresponding dim sense of the present. In other words, we seem to reach a point where the advantages of being conscious are outweighed by its disadvantages, where extreme sensitivity makes us unadaptable. — Alan W. Watts

Unknown Fear Quotes By Marcha A. Fox

A heartbeat later a single pair of orange eyes rose from the darkened depths. Dim at first, then in full brightness of attention they moved up from the floor then glided toward here, drawing closer and closer. She staggered back in horror as they moved nearer still, staring into hers, piercing her soul. — Marcha A. Fox

Unknown Fear Quotes By Shannon L. Alder

Never let your fear of the unknown and things being too difficult make your choices for you in life. One of the saddest lessons in life is finding out that your fear made the situation worse than what it was and a braver person stole the dream you gave up on. — Shannon L. Alder

Unknown Fear Quotes By Michael D. O'Brien

The world is full of hatred because it refuses to be poor. It wants to conquer fear with power. But you will conquer in another way, the unknown way. First, perhaps, you will forget. You will not see. You will not understand. Later you may see, and then you will know that the false self must die in order for the true self to be born. — Michael D. O'Brien

Unknown Fear Quotes By Debasish Mridha

Life is a journey toward the unknown future. Life is always a daring, great adventure. So go along with life, with courage, but without fear. — Debasish Mridha

Unknown Fear Quotes By Jiddu Krishnamurti

Fear is not of the unknown, but of loss of the known. — Jiddu Krishnamurti

Unknown Fear Quotes By Caroline Myss

The ability to know that your perceptions are accurate has to happen without others' validation. Intuition is not the result of diet, rituals, or wind chimes. It's the natural consequence of having self-esteem, the greatest power you can have. With self-esteem, your life can broaden into an adventure because you can know in your gut that you can handle the unknown. And you can handle helping others without fear, which is true liberation. — Caroline Myss

Unknown Fear Quotes By Erin O'Connor

Fear has been my biggest friend. Fear of the unknown. Whenever I've been afraid, I've been very self-protective. — Erin O'Connor

Unknown Fear Quotes By Cheryl Zelenka

If you fear the unknown you are certainly not alone. Many of God's children refuse opportunities to step through doors and into gloriously new territories. They are either too comfortable in life, or unwilling (mind you I did not say unable) to trust Him with the stretching of their faith. "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews. 11:1 (NKJV) — Cheryl Zelenka

Unknown Fear Quotes By Sophie Germain

In describing the honourable mission I charged him with, M. Pernety informed me that he made my name known to you. This leads me to confess that I am not as completely unknown to you as you might believe, but that fearing the ridicule attached to a female scientist, I have previously taken the name of M. LeBlanc in communicating to you those notes that, no doubt, do not deserve the indulgence with which you have responded.

{Explaining her use of a male pseudonym in a letter to Carl Friedrich Gauss, 1807} — Sophie Germain

Unknown Fear Quotes By Unknown

You're evil. It's your worst fear. And it's true. — Unknown

Unknown Fear Quotes By Dominic Monaghan

People have a fear of the unknown. Insects have different senses than us, different amount of limbs and their body structure is very different. It's hard for us to really relate to them and understand them. — Dominic Monaghan

Unknown Fear Quotes By Debasish Mridha

Stress comes from fear of the unknown, so have faith and fear will disappear and stress will melt away. — Debasish Mridha

Unknown Fear Quotes By Carol Hedges

There are limits to the dimension of fear. Until one meets the unknown. Then terror has no boundaries, no walls to keep it contained. — Carol Hedges

Unknown Fear Quotes By Tahir Shah

There comes a stage at which a man would rather die cleanly by a bullet than by the unknown terror of the phantom in the forest. — Tahir Shah

Unknown Fear Quotes By Wayne Gerard Trotman

Fear sees, even when eyes are closed. — Wayne Gerard Trotman

Unknown Fear Quotes By Erwin Raphael McManus

Three powerful life-changing words passed on from God to us: Now choose life! Right now, this moment, put away the baggage from the past, shake yourself free from the fear of the future unknown. Right now, choose life - seize your divine moment. A — Erwin Raphael McManus

Unknown Fear Quotes By Isabel Allende

She fell in love with freedom. In the Sommers' home she had lived shut up within four walls, in a stagnant atmosphere where time moved in circles and where she could barely glimpse the horizon through distorted windowpanes. She had grown up clad in the impenetrable armor of good manners and conventions, trained from girlhood to please and serve, bound by corset, routines, social norms, and fear. Fear had been her companion: fear of God and his unpredictable justice, of authority, of her adoptive parents, of illness and evil tongues, of anything unknown or different; fear of leaving the protection of her home and facing the dangers outside; fear of her own fragility as a woman, of dishonor and truth. Hers had been a sugar-coated reality built on the unspoken, on courteous silences, well-guarded secrets, order, and discipline. She had aspired to virtue but now she questioned the meaning of the word. — Isabel Allende

Unknown Fear Quotes By Joe Vitale

You don't fear change. You fear the unknown. If you knew the future would be great, you'd welcome the change to get there. Well, the future IS great. Proceed. — Joe Vitale

Unknown Fear Quotes By Barbara Brown Taylor

If I have any expertise, it is in the realm of spiritual darkness: fear of the unknown, familiarity with divine absence, mistrust of conventional wisdom, suspicion of religious comforters, keen awareness of the limits of all language about God and at the same time shame over my inability to speak of God without a thousand qualifiers, doubt about the health of my soul, and barely suppressed contempt for those who have no such qualms. These are the areas of my proficiency. — Barbara Brown Taylor

Unknown Fear Quotes By Jiddu Krishnamurti

One is never afraid of the unknown; one is afraid of the known coming to an end. — Jiddu Krishnamurti

Unknown Fear Quotes By Henry T. Blackaby

Most fear is fear of the unknown. We do not know what lies ahead of us, so we become apprehensive. Our imaginations can magnify problems until they seem insurmountable. We need a sound mind to see things in proper perspective. That is why God gave us His Holy Spirit, to enable us to see things as God sees them. — Henry T. Blackaby

Unknown Fear Quotes By Stephen King

You laugh because what's fearful and unknown is also what's funny, you laugh the way a small child will sometimes laugh and cry at the same time when a capering circus clown approaches, knowing it is supposed to be funny... but it is also unknown, full of the unknown's eternal power. — Stephen King

Unknown Fear Quotes By Stephen Crane

A wound gives strange dignity to him who bears it. Well men shy from his new and terrible majesty. It is as if the wounded man's hand is upon the curtain which hangs before the revelations of all existence - the meaning of ants, potentates, wars, cities, sunshine, snow, a feather dropped from a bird's wing; and the power of it sheds radiance upon a bloody form, and makes the other men understand sometimes that they are little. His comrades look at him with large eyes thoughtfully. Moreover, they fear vaguely that the weight of a finger upon him might send him headlong, precipitate the tragedy, hurl him at once into the dim, gray unknown.
("An Episode Of War") — Stephen Crane

Unknown Fear Quotes By Alexandre Dumas

But there is no need to know danger in order to fear it: indeed, it may be observed, that it is usually unknown perils that inspire the greatest terror. — Alexandre Dumas

Unknown Fear Quotes By Unknown

Tiger takes two steps back not due to fear but to attack! — Unknown

Unknown Fear Quotes By Unknown

Dream without fear,
Write without limits. — Unknown

Unknown Fear Quotes By Raheel Farooq

The greatest fear in life is not of death, but unsolicited change. — Raheel Farooq

Unknown Fear Quotes By William Golding

He doesn't mind if he dies ... indeed, he would like to die; but yet he fears to fall. He would welcome a long sleep; but not at the price of falling to it. — William Golding

Unknown Fear Quotes By Samantha Young

Courage was not the absence of fear, but the ability to walk into unknown territory despite it. — Samantha Young

Unknown Fear Quotes By Thomas Jefferson

All should be laid open to you without reserve, for there is not a truth existing which I fear, or would wish unknown to the whole world. — Thomas Jefferson

Unknown Fear Quotes By Henry Van Dyke

Heaven often seems distant and unknown, but if He who made the road ... is our guide, we need not fear to lose the way. — Henry Van Dyke

Unknown Fear Quotes By Edward Gibbon

The laws of war, that restrain the exercise of national rapine and murder, are founded on two principles of substantial interest: the knowledge of the permanent benefits which may be obtained by a moderate use of conquest, and a just apprehension lest the desolation which we inflict on the enemy's country may be retaliated on our own. But these considerations of hope and fear are almost unknown in the pastoral state of nations. — Edward Gibbon

Unknown Fear Quotes By William Shakespeare

If it were now to die,
'Twere now to be most happy, for I fear
My soul hath her content so absolute
That no other comfort, like to this
Succeeds in unknown fate — William Shakespeare

Unknown Fear Quotes By Connie Kerbs

Three, 300, or 3,000 - these are the number of unknown days, a week, a year, or a decade, each far too precious little and yet, poignantly too much at the same time, to see an irrevocably declined loved one languish and suffer. That fear-ridden, irreversible release lingers in the doorway, but hesitates for reasons we don't understand, leaving us to weep with a mixture of angst and gratitude all at the same time. It is finally ushered all the way in, to comfort and carry our loved one to that Better Place. When the time finally comes, we can be enveloped in a warm cloak of long-awaited acceptance and peace that eases our own pain. It quiets the grief which has moaned inside of us, at least some, every single one of those bittersweet days, weeks... or years. — Connie Kerbs

Unknown Fear Quotes By C.S. Lewis

It is far better to make them live in the Future. Biological necessity makes all their passions point in that direction already, so that thought about the Future inflames hope and fear. Also, it is unknown to them, so that in making them think about it we make them think of unrealities. In a word, the Future is, of all things, the thing least like eternity. It is the most completely temporal part of time - for the Past is frozen and no longer flows, and the Present is all lit up with eternal rays. Hence the encouragement we have given to all those schemes of thought such as Creative Evolution, Scientific Humanism, or Communism, which fix men's affections on the Future, on the very core of temporality. Hence nearly all vices are rooted in the future. Gratitude looks to the past and love to the present; fear, avarice, lust, and ambition look ahead. Do — C.S. Lewis

Unknown Fear Quotes By H.L. Mencken

The one permanent emotion of the inferior man is fear - fear of the unknown, the complex, the inexplicable. What he wants above everything else is safety. — H.L. Mencken

Unknown Fear Quotes By Brandon Sanderson

Ravens and crows. Rats Mists and clouds. Insects and corruption. Strange events and odd occurrences. The ordinary twisted and strange. Wonders!

The dead are beginning to walk and some see them. Others do not, but more and more, we all fear the night.

These have been our days. They rain upon us beneath a dead sky, crushing us with their fury, until as one we beg: "Let it begin!"

-Journal of the Unknown Scholar, entry for The Feast of Freia, 1000 NE — Brandon Sanderson

Unknown Fear Quotes By John Buchan

Peace is that state in which fear of any kind is unknown. — John Buchan

Unknown Fear Quotes By Leo Tolstoy

There lay between them, separating them, that same terrible line of the unknown and of fear, like the line separating the living from the dead. — Leo Tolstoy

Unknown Fear Quotes By Rachel Naomi Remen

Mystery has great power. In the many years I have worked with people with cancer, I have seen Mystery comfort people when nothing else can comfort them and offer hope when nothing else offers hope. I have seen Mystery heal fear that is otherwise unhealable. For years I have watched people in their confrontation with the unknown recover awe, wonder, joy, and aliveness. They have remembered that life is holy, and they have reminded me as well. In losing our sense of Mystery, we have become a nation of burned-out people. People who wonder do not burn out. — Rachel Naomi Remen

Unknown Fear Quotes By Rose Macaulay

When the years have all passed, there will gape the uncomfortable and unpredictable dark void of death, and into this I shall at last fall headlong, down and down and down, and the prospect of that fall, that uprooting, that rending apart of body and spirit, that taking off into so blank an unknown, drowns me in mortal fear and mortal grief. After all, life, for all its agonies of despair and loss and guilt, is exciting and beautiful, amusing and artful and endearing, full of liking and of love, at times a poem and a high adventure, at times noble and at times very gay; and whatever (if anything) is to come after it, we shall not have this life again. — Rose Macaulay

Unknown Fear Quotes By Rick Chiantaretto

I remembered what it was like to die-the pain, the fear, the doubt, and the unknown. Somehow I had cheated death once. Now I was about to try again. — Rick Chiantaretto

Unknown Fear Quotes By Wade Davis

Death's power lies in fear, which flourishes in the imagination and the unknown. — Wade Davis

Unknown Fear Quotes By Seneca The Younger

If we let things terrify us, life will not be worth living. — Seneca The Younger

Unknown Fear Quotes By Chingiz Aitmatov

His singing made me want to fall to the ground and kiss it, as a son to a mother, grateful that someone could love it so keenly. For the first time in my life something new awoke within me, something irresistible: I still cannot explain it. It was a need to express myself, yes, to express myself, not only to see and sense the world, but to bring to others my vision, my thoughts and sensations, to describe the beauty of the earth as inspiringly as Daniyar could sing. I caught my breath for fear and joy of the unknown. At that time, however, I had not yet realized the need to take up brush and paints. — Chingiz Aitmatov

Unknown Fear Quotes By Tracy L. Higley

The fear of the unknown was eclipsed by the gladness that came of taking action, of doing something rather than waiting, of following what seemed to be the call of my life. — Tracy L. Higley

Unknown Fear Quotes By Shane Jiraiya Cummings

Horror is about fear, about rising dread and unknown terrors, and in the face of such nightmares, the acts of good people can seem insignificant. — Shane Jiraiya Cummings

Unknown Fear Quotes By Carrie Jones

It's a lot easier to understand things once you name them. It's the unknown that mostly freaks me out. I don't know the name of that fear, but I know I've got it, the fear of the unknown. — Carrie Jones

Unknown Fear Quotes By LeeAnn Whitaker

Elizabeth, when you look into the darkness you have two choices. You either fall into it, so you'll never fear the unknown again. Or you stay on the ledge, always wondering what's there. Torturing yourself over it. Elizabeth, I live in the abyss, and would like you to leap into the unknown with me. Will you join me? — LeeAnn Whitaker

Unknown Fear Quotes By Kathe Koja

Darkness might seem to obscure what's happening, but I find it's always pretty revelatory: it brings out the awe in us, the fear in us, the excitement of exploring the hidden or unknown. It seems to conceal, but it really shines a light on what we want, what we need, and what we'll do to get it. Especially when we think no one can see us. — Kathe Koja

Unknown Fear Quotes By Steve Rizzo

If you let fear of the unknown stop you from taking chances, you will stifle your true potential. — Steve Rizzo

Unknown Fear Quotes By Forrest Curran

Freedom from stress, freedom from anxiety, freedom from depression; freedom is autonomy from all that stagnates growth in this ever complex and noisy world. By the fear of being in the unknown, we often overlook and forget the serene view of being on the raft: the glowing virgin stars, the gentle ways that the waves moves, and the endless possibilities that exist under the sun. The fundamental principle of freedom is to be lost and our state of mind never differs too far from this analogy of being stranded in the middle of the ocean. — Forrest Curran

Unknown Fear Quotes By Robert Galbraith

He was thinking about men like his Uncle Ted, a Cornishman to his bones, who lived and would die in St. Mawes, part of the fabric of the place, remembered as long as there were locals, beaming out of fading photographs of the Life Boat on pub walls. When Ted died - and Strike hoped it would be twenty, thirty years hence - they would mourn him as the unknown Barrovian Grammar boy was being mourned: with drink, with tears, but in celebration that he had been given to them. What had dark, hulking Brockbank, child rapist, and fox-haired Laing, wife-torturer, left behind in the towns of their birth? Shudders of relief that they had gone, fear that they had returned, a trail of broken people and bad memories. — Robert Galbraith

Unknown Fear Quotes By Alexander McCall Smith

Chance; pure chance. But chance was a dull explanation because it denied the possibility of the paranormal, and people were often disappointed by dull explanations. Mystery and the unknown were far more exciting because they suggested that our world was not quite as prosaic as we feared it might be. Yet we had to adjure those temptations because they lead to a world of darkness and fear. — Alexander McCall Smith

Unknown Fear Quotes By Henry Ward Beecher

When our children die, we drop them into the unknown, shuddering with fear. We know that they go out from us, and we stand, and pity, and wonder. — Henry Ward Beecher

Unknown Fear Quotes By Jenn Cooksey

Oh, you know ... staring down fear, laughing in the face of death, taking a ride in Hell, and in general, testing the waters of the unknown. — Jenn Cooksey

Unknown Fear Quotes By D.E. Stevenson

She had always suffered from a curious fear of what was going to happen round the next corner. Even when life went smoothly and nothing occurred to justify her vague apprehensions, they did not altogether disperse. She had tried to face these fears and conquer them, but she could never do so entirely, she could only strain forward into the darkness of the future, expecting and fearing the unknown. She was brave in the face of dangers she could see, but she could not arm herself against shadows. These fears were her weakness. — D.E. Stevenson

Unknown Fear Quotes By Maureen Brady

Fearing the unknown within myself has kept me crouching in a corner. I look to see who I am and discover much that is worthy. — Maureen Brady

Unknown Fear Quotes By Richelle E. Goodrich

Life is a walk through the forest. Don't fear the trees, fear what lurks behind them. — Richelle E. Goodrich

Unknown Fear Quotes By Debasish Mridha

Stress comes from the fear of the unknown; tranquility comes from accepting the unknown with love and joy. — Debasish Mridha

Unknown Fear Quotes By Alan Watts

By replacing fear of the unknown with curiosity we open ourselves up to an infinite stream of possibility. We can let fear rule our lives or we can become childlike with curiosity, pushing our boundaries, leaping out of our comfort zones, and accepting what life puts before us. — Alan Watts

Unknown Fear Quotes By Pema Chodron

The spiritual journey involves going beyond hope and fear, stepping into unknown territory, continually moving forward. The most important aspect of being on the spiritual path may be to just keep moving. — Pema Chodron

Unknown Fear Quotes By Joan D. Vinge

Fear of the unknown is a terrible fear. — Joan D. Vinge

Unknown Fear Quotes By Jeanette Winterson

And here's the shock
when you risk it, when you do the right thing, when you arrive at the borders of common sense and cross into unknown territory, leaving behind you all the familiar smells and lights, you do not experience great joy and huge energy.
You are unhappy. Things get worse.
It is a time of mourning. Loss. Fear. We bullet ourselves through with questions. And then we feel shot and wounded.
And then all the cowards come out and say, 'See, I told you so.'
In fact, they told you nothing. — Jeanette Winterson

Unknown Fear Quotes By Faraaz Kazi

Fear is the most potent weapon. — Faraaz Kazi

Unknown Fear Quotes By Vera Nazarian

Since the dawn of existence, you mortals have feared dying, feared the unknown and the pain of it, and yet, pain is a part of life, not death. And I - I am the first moment after pain ceases," he [Death] pronounced. "It is life that fights and struggles and rages; life, that tears at you in its last agonizing throes to hold on, even if but for one futile instant longer ... Whereas I, I come softly when it is all done. Pain and death are an ordered sequence, not a parallel pair. So easy to confuse the correlations, not realizing that one does not bring the other. — Vera Nazarian

Unknown Fear Quotes By Edouard Leve

You did not fear death. You stepped in its path, but without really desiring it: how can one desire something one doesn't know? You didn't deny life but affirmed your taste for the unknown, betting that if something existed on the other side, it would be better than here. — Edouard Leve

Unknown Fear Quotes By Jennifer DeLucy

How many of us stop short of success on purpose? How many of us sabotage our own happiness because failure, while miserable, is a fear we're familiar with? Success, however, dreams come true, are a whole new kind of terrifying, an entire new species of responsibilities and disillusions, requiring a new way to think, act and become. Why do we REALLY quit? Because it's hopeless? Or because it's possible ... — Jennifer DeLucy

Unknown Fear Quotes By Cornelia Funke

Nothing is more frightening than a fear you cannot name. — Cornelia Funke

Unknown Fear Quotes By Thabiso Monkoe

The only thing that holds back from your success is fear of the unknown — Thabiso Monkoe

Unknown Fear Quotes By Philip Roth

It's as though not even that most basic level of imaginative thought had been admitted into consciousness to cause the slightest disturbance. A century of destruction unlike any other in its extremity befalls and blights the human race - scores of millions of ordinary people condemned to suffer deprivation upon deprivation, atrocity upon atrocity, evil upon evil, half the world or more subjected to pathological sadism as social policy, whole societies organized and fettered by the fear of violent persecution, the degradation of individual life engineered on a scale unknown throughout human history, nations broken and enslaved by ideological criminals who rob them of everything, entire populations so demoralized as to be unable to get out of bed in the morning with the minutest desire to face the day ... all the terrible touchstones presented by this century, and here they are up in arms about Faunia Farley. — Philip Roth

Unknown Fear Quotes By Adrien Brody

Part of what attracted me to the village was it had a lot of parallels to contemporary issues. Like, fear and the way fear controls us. How the governing body of a town, or a nation, controls us through fear. They might mean well by it, but we are conditioned to be afraid of things. Fear of the unknown. Fear of terrorism. And it's unfortunate. — Adrien Brody

Unknown Fear Quotes By Kim Harrison

My blood rose, mixing with my lingering fear of the unknown to drive her to a fever pitch. Her lips touched my lower neck and vertigo spun the room, burning tracings of desire to settle deep and low in me. I exhaled into the promise of more to come, calling it to me. I breathed it in like smoke, the rising passion starting a feeling of abandonment inside. I didn't care anymore if it was right or wrong. It just was. — Kim Harrison

Unknown Fear Quotes By Bram Stoker

Oh, the terrible struggle that I have had against sleep so often of late; the pain of the sleeplessness, or the pain of the fear of sleep, and with such unknown horror as it has for me! How blessed are some people, whose lives have no fears, no dreads; to whom sleep is a blessing that comes nightly, and brings nothing but sweet dreams. — Bram Stoker

Unknown Fear Quotes By Patricia A. Knight

Yes. I know all about soul-wraiths." Ramsey frowned. "How did you avoid them in the past?"
"Set a perimeter of energized diaman crystal. That will keep them at bay." Hel smiled without humor. "I have the diaman crystal in my saddle pack. I lack a sexual partner to energize them. I had intended to return with a magistra but a magister will work as well. Care to volunteer?"
"Only if I top," Ramsey snapped.
"You'd have to kill me first," returned Hel.
"With pleasure."
Steffania took a breath. Ram cut her off. "No. I don't share you, Vixen."
Fear of the unknown almost froze Adonia's tongue, but she was the obvious answer. She could do this, and the opportunity might never present itself again. "I'll be your partner. — Patricia A. Knight

Unknown Fear Quotes By Saurabh Sharma

Na, we are not sincere about anything; we are serious about everything because deep down, we are afraid to loose something we don't know about. — Saurabh Sharma

Unknown Fear Quotes By Frederick Lenz

Once you are enlightened, you can do whatever you want without fear or sorrow. You can go snowboarding, get married, stay single, be rich and famous, or live unknown in a high Himalayan cave. It is up to you. — Frederick Lenz

Unknown Fear Quotes By Jill Morgenthaler

The unknown is the hardest obstacle of all. When we don't know what to expect, we lose the feeling of control. This is what really scares us the most - the loss of control. Kids are afraid of the dark because they don't know what might be hiding from sight. Similarly, when we don't know what to expect at the end of the rope, we feel the need to pull away from it. It is this fear of the unknown that stops our progress. Over — Jill Morgenthaler

Unknown Fear Quotes By K.K. Cook

Be weary of the unknown inside of every human being, but do not fear it, embrace it. — K.K. Cook

Unknown Fear Quotes By Valerie Frankel

So now i know. I fear the unknown so deeply that I'de rather repeat the same heart-breaking pattern than face something or someone i can't predict. — Valerie Frankel

Unknown Fear Quotes By Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

What I like about the Carpenter take on The Thing is the fact that it just has so much suspense. It seemed like a different story, with the horror elements. Those films that really speak to the primal fear that we, as human beings, have about the unknown have always intrigued me. That's the really scary thing, not the slasher, macabre movies. — Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje

Unknown Fear Quotes By Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Life ... was nothing more than a system of atavistic contracts, banal ceremonies, preordained words, with which people entertained each other ... The dominant sign in that paradise of provincial frivolity was the fear of the unknown — Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Unknown Fear Quotes By Gordon T. Smith

There are many unknowns in life. This is patently clear again and again when we face vocational transitions. We cannot see around the bend in the road. We make decisions about our lives with implications for the lives of those we love and those for whom we have some responsibilities, and there are so many unknown variables. But there is one key variable that can be a known factor in our lives: The LORD will keep your going out and your coming in from this time on and forevermore. (Ps 121:8) On this we can depend. It will be the same now and for each transition of our lives. If we believe this, it will be evident because fear will no longer co-opt our lives. — Gordon T. Smith

Unknown Fear Quotes By George Cooke

Fear is and has always been dead. It's how we picture it that makes fear come to life. — George Cooke

Unknown Fear Quotes By Susan Mallery

The worst part is the unknown. The pain of being alone, the loneliness, is familiar. You've dealt with that. You understand it. But loving someone, risking everything, is unknown. There's no way to know how bad it's going to be. You barely survive the pain of being alone, so how can you deal with anything worse? So you don't bother to try. — Susan Mallery

Unknown Fear Quotes By Richard Matheson

It was more than a spider. It was every unknown terror in the world fused into wriggling, poison-jawed horror. It was every anxiety, insecurity, and fear in his life given a hideous, night-black form. — Richard Matheson

Unknown Fear Quotes By Unknown

I used to fear depression. Now I look into the mirror and want to smash it to pieces. I put on fake smiles, I have no confidence, no one likes me, and I hate this place. Now I know why I feared it. — Unknown

Unknown Fear Quotes By Plato

The fear of death is indeed the pretence of wisdom, and not real wisdom, being the appearance of knowing the unknown. — Plato

Unknown Fear Quotes By Nenia Campbell

We always vilify what we don't understand. — Nenia Campbell

Unknown Fear Quotes By Caroline Kettlewell

The fear of an unknown never resolves, because the unknown expands infinitely outward, leaving you to cling pitifully to any small shelter of the known: a cracker has twelve calories; the skin, when cut, bleeds. — Caroline Kettlewell

Unknown Fear Quotes By Paulo Coelho

People need not fear the unknown if they are capable of achieving what they need and want. — Paulo Coelho

Unknown Fear Quotes By J.V. Jones

She supposed it felt like freedom, if freedom was a fall into the unknown. — J.V. Jones

Unknown Fear Quotes By C. G. Jung

Consciousness naturally resists anything unconscious and unknown. I have already pointed out the existence among primitive peoples of what anthropologists call "misoneism," a deep and superstitious fear of novelty. The primitives manifest all the reactions of the wild animal against untoward events. But "civilized" man reacts to new ideas in much the same way, erecting psychological barriers to protect himself from the shock of facing something new. — C. G. Jung

Unknown Fear Quotes By Thich Nhat Hanh

People have a hard time letting go of their suffering. Out of a fear of the unknown, they prefer suffering that is familiar. — Thich Nhat Hanh

Unknown Fear Quotes By Guillermo Del Toro

Rod Serling once observed, The greatest fear of all is fear of the unknown, which you can't share with others. — Guillermo Del Toro

Unknown Fear Quotes By Ashim Shanker

It seemed a ruse that fear of death should be the sole motivation for living and, yet, to quell this fear made the prospect of living itself seem all the more absurd; to extend this further, the notion of living one's life for the purposes of pondering the absurdity of living was an even greater absurdity in and of itself, which thus, by reductio ad absurdum, rendered the fear of death a necessary function of life and any lack thereof, a trifling matter rooted in self-inflicted incoherence. — Ashim Shanker

Unknown Fear Quotes By Will Durant

As knowledge grew, fear decreased; men thought less of worshiping the unknown, and more of overcoming it. — Will Durant
