The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.
More quotes by Mark Twain
Hardly a man in the world has an opinion upon morals, politics or religion which he got otherwise than through his associations and sympathies. Broadly speaking, there are none but corn-pone opinions. And broadly speaking, Corn-Pone stands for Self-Approval. Self-approval is acquired mainly from the approval of other people. The result is Conformity.

Fear is primarily a creation of the mind. I create it in my mind-it doesn’t really exist outside the mind. I can dissolve it there as well. – John Mackey

I am pretty fearless. You know why? Because I don’t handle fear very well; I’m not a good terrified person.
Fear is a useless emotion. Don’t ever make decisions based on fear. Make decisions based on hope and possibility.
There’s an old German proverb to the effect that fear makes the wolf bigger than he is,and that is true.
Don’t ever make decisions based on fear. Make decisions based on hope and possibility. Make decisions based on what should happen, not what shouldn’t.
