Fear Quotes

Using fear quotes around the house can be a great way to remember your goals and eventually overcome your fear. Motivational quotes can have a big impact on your goal to self-actualization as they remind you that you’re not alone with your fears and that other people have been where you are and made successes of themselves.

Visible quotes around your house can also give you a boost when you’re feeling upset with a lack of progress or if you need some encouragement to step out of your comfort zone again.

What Awaits You


Coming face to face with our deepest fear can be absolutely terrifying, and even the idea of doing this will put people off taking steps to overcoming it. This is the time when you need motivational fear quotes put up around the house to remind you of what awaits you when you’ve managed to conquer fear itself:

  • You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
  • 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
  • Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free. – Jim Morrison

These fear quotes are great to have in places where you choose to do your soul searching. You may want to make them into posters for the wall in your quiet room or as post notes that surround each mirror in your home. Either way, you need to be able to see these to remind you of why you’re putting yourself through the stress of overcoming your fears.

Getting Some Perspective

Sometimes our fears can completely alter the way in which we view the world and taint all of our decisions and relationships. If you have reached this stage, or have been there before, you may want to have some fear quotes to help remind you to take a breath and a step back to get some perspective:

  • I wish my stove came with a Save As button like Word has. That way I could experiment with my cooking and not fear ruining my dinner. – Jarod Kintz
  • Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less. – Marie Curie
  • If we take the generally accepted definition of bravery as a quality which knows no fear, I have never seen a brave man. All men are frightened. The more intelligent they are, the more they are frightened. – George S Patton

While these kinds of fear quotes can be funny, they are more intended to make you stop and think, and perhaps make you realize that you’ve maybe been thinking too much about your fear and your paths to overcoming it.

These aren’t day-to-day quotes as they will lose their resonance if you have them on permanent display in your home. Have a store of them somewhere private where you can turn to in times of need, such as a diary, a locked draw or in a file on your computer. That way, they act as an emotional safety net, which you can fall back on at any time.
