Quotes on Fear

I know these can be fearful times.  To help get us through, I reviewed my collection of quotes on fear.  I couldn’t pick just one, so here are a few to provide you with inspiration and courage:

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”— Franklin D. Roosevelt

“Fear defeats more people than any other one thing in the world.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Fear has two meanings: ‘Forget Everything And Run’ or ‘Face Everything And Rise.’ The choice is yours.” — Zig Ziglar

“I have learned over the years that when one’s mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear.” — Rosa Parks
