    My only fear is fear itself
    I ain't afraid to die, more afraid of myself

    If fear wasn't defined how it is, would you still associate the feeling of fear with things what you are currently scared of? Or would it just be normal? as you are aware of the feeling but haven't realized the feeling (a bit like gravity until Einstein realized what it was)

    Some kind of fear is good for you though

    I'm afraid of spiders, not afraid of being afraid of spiders.

    I've always thought that quote is dumb.

    Fear is good. Lack of fear is to be feared! Fear is what keeps you alive and away from the stomachs of lions!!!!!

    We don't fear, fear itself - we fear the unknown. It's like I'm not afraid of the darkness, I fear what may be lurking in the shadows.

    But fear of fear is in itself a fear.

    Fear is nature's way of forcing its agenda on you. I agree with the quote.

    No. I am terrified of death.

    Might get negged, but what the hell. When I'm dead, I'm gone. To be forgotten. I really don't like the idea of that. Of not existing any more.

    I want to bo someone. A name in history. Because if people know my name, I'm not dead. I still mean something. That's what I want, and it's all driven by fear. And that's why, in my opinion, fear is a good thing. Something not to be feared itself.

    Why fear fear?

    The most dangerous of emotions are hatred or jealousy, because they're both capable of deceiving us and leading us astray.

    I'd fear those, not fear. Fears are part of everyone, and as long as you accept and acknowledge them, they don't do you any bad.
