Nothing gives a fearful man more courage than another’s fear.
It is better to be a coward for a minute than dead for the rest of your life.
Sometimes what a man escapes to is worse than what he escapes from.
Tis looking downward makes one dizzy.
Oh the nerves, the nerves; the mysteries of this machine called man! Oh the little that unhinges it, poor creatures that we are!
The concessions of the weak are the concessions of fear.
Fear at my heart, as at a cup, My life-blood seemed to sip!
Oh, fear not in a world like this, And thou shalt know ere long, Know how sublime a thing it is To suffer and be strong.
I, a stranger and afraid In a world I never made.
Like one, that on a lonesome road Doth walk in fear and dread, And having once turned round, walks on. And turns once more his head; Because he knows a frightful fiend Doth close behind him tread.
