Courage is a mean with regard to fear and confidence.
Wicked men obey from fear; good men, from love.
The generality of men are naturally apt to be swayed by fear rather than reverence, and to refrain from evil rather because of the punishment that it brings than because of its own foulness.
Men are swayed more by fear than by reverence.
It is possible to fail in many ways…while to succeed is possible only in one way.
Fear is pain arising from the anticipation of evil.
I have gained this by philosophy that I do without being commanded what others do only from fear of the law.
We are not angry with people we fear or respect, as long as we fear or respect them; you cannot be afraid of a person and also at the same time angry with him.
No one loves the man whom he fears.
No one who achieves success does so without acknowledging the help of others. The wise and confident acknowledge this help with gratitude.
The most successful men in the end are those whose success is the result of steady accretion.
Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.
The only difference between success and failure is the ability to take action.
If we don’t succeed, we run the risk of failure.
The great strength of the totalitarian state is that it forces those who fear it to imitate it.
Success is the sole earthly judge of right and wrong.
If you want to shine like sun first you have to burn like it.
The very first essential for success is a perpetually constant and regular employment of violence.
Listen to clients, employees, and peers and stay open to their ideas, feedback, and answers. Doing so is vital to the success of any leader.
You can’t be successful in business without taking risks. It’s really that simple.
