Men are disturbed not by events, but by the views which they take of them.

I believe that anyone can conquer fear by doing the things he fears to do, provided he keeps doing them until he gets a record of successful experience behind him.
Do the thing you fear to do and keep on doing it…that is the quickest and surest way ever yet discovered to conquer fear. Fear doesn’t exist anywhere except in the mind.
Always do what you are afraid to do. Do the thing we fear, and the death of fear is certain.
Each time we face our fear, we gain strength, courage, and confidence in the doing.
The way you overcome fear and shyness is to become wrapped up in something that you forget to be afraid.
One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn’t do.
Panic is a sudden desertion of us, and a going over to the enemy of our imagination.
Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.
