fear

In that one slight motion, I see the end of hope, beginning of destruction of everything I hold dear in the world. I can’t guess what form my punishment will take, how wide the net will be cast, but when it is finished there most likely be nothing left. So you would think that at this moment, I would be in utter despair.

Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

Hope, it is the only thing stronger than fear. A little hope is effective, a lot of hope is dangerous.

Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

I’m not scared of hell. I lived a decent life, and I don’t think there is such a place, anyway. I’m scared there’s nothing. There was nothing before, we all know that, so doesn’t it stand to reason that there’s nothing after?

Stephen King, Doctor Sleep

FEAR stands for face everything and recover.

Stephen King, Doctor Sleep

FEAR stands for fuck everything and run.

Stephen King, Doctor Sleep

If a fear cannot be articulated, it can’t be conquered.

Stephen King, Salem’s Lot

She had always consciously or unconsciously formed fear into a simple equation: fears = unknown.

Stephen King, Salem’s Lot

And there lies the horror: the past we remember is devoid of time. Impossible to reexperience a love the way we reread a book or resee a film.

Milan Kundera, Ignorance

I was not scared of anything, when I read my book.

Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

If you have something specific and visible to fear, rather than something that could be anything, it is easier.
