Famous quotes containing the word feared:

    I never yet feared those men who set a place apart in the middle of their cities where they gather to cheat one another and swear oaths which they break.
    Herodotus (c. 484–424 B.C.)

    The grizzly bear whose potent hug
    Was feared by all, is now a rug.

    Great Caesar’s bust is on the shelf,
    And I don’t feel so well myself.
    Arthur Guiterman (1891–1943)

    The ignorant are a reservoir of daring. It almost seems that those who have yet to discover the known are particularly equipped for dealing with the unknown. The unlearned have often rushed in where the learned feared to tread, and it is the credulous who are tempted to attempt the impossible. They know not whither they are going, and give chance a chance.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)
