Eckhart Tolle

A fool without fear is sometimes wiser than an angel with fear.

Why? Because he can always rest assured that he succeeded in life's most important battle -
he defeated the fear of trying.
Robert Schuller

Wise fear begets care.
American proverb

mean actions to fear.

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

by supplanting it with faith in success, achievement, and victory over all problems.
Joseph Murphy
