Help your students learn to express their thoughts and emotions about fear. They are going to experience moments of fear and anxiety. So, help them start thinking about it by using the quotes from adults we all know: Coretta Scott King, Michael Jordan, Dale Carnegie, Steve Jobs, James Baldwin, Thich Nhat Hanh, Nelson Mandela, Marie Curie, Khalil Gibran, Tecumseh, Jane Goodall, and more. Each page has one quote, two quotes, or four quotes about fear that students must think about, talk about, and ten write their own reactions. There is no right or wrong answer, just high-level thinking, critical thinking, analyzing. Take a look at the Preview to see a few sample pages. Here are a few sample quotes:
“We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear.” - Martin Luther King, Jr.
“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’” - Eleanor Roosevelt
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” - Nelson Mandela
“It is not death that a man should fear, but he should fear never beginning to live.” - Marcus Aurelius
