Quotations about fear, and being afraid

Joss Whedon – People say we must not have horror in any form

Share this quote:
Joss WhedonI think there’s a lot of people out there who say we must not have horror in any form, we must not say scary things to children because it will make them evil and disturbed… That offends me deeply, because the world is a scary and horrifying place, and everyone’s going to get old and die, if they’re that lucky. To set children up to think that everything is sunshine and roses is doing them a great disservice.

Epicurus – Death is of no concern to us

Share this quote:
EpicurusAccustom yourself to the belief that death is of no concern to us, since all good and evil lie in sensation and sensation ends with death. Therefore the true belief that death is nothing to us makes a mortal life happy, not by adding to it an infinite time, but by taking away the desire for immortality. For there is no reason why the man who is thoroughly assured that there is nothing to fear in death should find anything to fear in life.

So, too, he is foolish who says that he fears death, not because it will be painful when it comes, but because the anticipation of it is painful; for that which is no burden when it is present gives pain to no purpose when it is anticipated. Death, the most dreaded of evils, is therefore of no concern to us; for while we exist death is not present, and when death is present we no longer exist.

Ronald Reagan – Whatever else history may say about me

Share this quote:
Whatever else history may say about me when I’m gone, I hope it will record that I appealed to your best hopes, not your worst fears; to your confidence rather than your doubts. My dream is that you will travel the road ahead with liberty’s lamp guiding your steps and opportunity’s arm steadying your way.

Laozi / Lao-Tzu – Be careful what you water your dreams with

Share this quote:
Lao TzuBe careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream.

Dean Koontz – In our pity is our humanity

Share this quote:
Dean KoontzPain is a gift. Humanity, without pain, would know neither fear nor pity. Without fear, there could be no humility, and every man would be a monster. The recognition of pain and fear in others give rise in us to pity, and in our pity is our humanity, our redemption.

Dean Koontz   (1971-)

David Cronenberg – The art of horror

David CronenbergI think of horror films as art, as films of confrontation. Films that make you confront aspects of your own life that are difficult to face. Just because you are making a horror film doesn’t mean you can’t make an artful film.

David Cronenberg   (1943-)
