Definition: Fearless-ness

“Be anchored in fearlessness. What is worldly life but fear!  When you live in the grip of fear, must you not be afraid? It is futile to expect
fearlessness there. That you may be delivered from all sorrow you
should endeavour to let God be your one and only support.” – Anandamayee Ma

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” Frank Herbert

“Fear can stop you loving, Love can stop your fear.” (Morcheeba)

“Fear is only as deep as the mind allows.”
-Japanese proverb
“Feed your faith and your fears will starve to death.”
“Focus on where you want to go, not on what you fear.”
-Anthony Robbins
“Let me assert my firm belief that the only thing to fear is fear itself:  nameless,
unreasoning, unjustified terror.”
-Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else
is more important than fear.”
-Ambrose Redmoon
“To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.”
-Bertrand Russell
