People suffer from all sorts of phobias. We have heard of common phobias like claustrophobia (fear of confined spaces) and hydrophobia (fear of water). There are other kinds of relatively lesser known phobias such as the fear of body odor (bromidrosiphobia) and the fear of mushrooms (mycophobia). Are you afraid of heights? You are suffering from acrophobia. If you have a certain kind of fear, remember that you are not the only one with such fears. As these courage quotations will show, fear has been around since forever. It is hard to summon enough courage to go on. But you cannot let your fears hold you back. You have to keep going, and maybe these courage quotations will help you do just that.
