Quote by Marian Anderson
Fear is a disease that eats away at logic and makes man inhuman.
This quote suggests that fear has the power to override rational thinking and drive individuals to commit acts that go against their basic human nature. It portrays fear as a destructive force, likening it to a disease that gradually erodes one's ability to act with compassion and empathy. By highlighting the dehumanizing effect of fear, the quote implies that it is essential for individuals to recognize and confront their fears in order to maintain their humanity.
The strong manly ones in life are those who understand the meaning of the word patience. Patience means restraining one's inclinations. There are seven emotions: joy, anger, anxiety, adoration, grief, fear, and hate, and if a man does not give way to these he can be called patient. I am not as strong as I might be, but I have long known and practiced patience. And if my descendants wish to be as I am, they must study patience.
