            —Oliver Wendell Holmes

  Fear on fear, like light reflected from the dancing wave, visits all places, but can rest in none.
            —Robert Jephson

As corn o’ergrown by weeds, so heedful fear
Is almost chok’d by unresisted lust.
            —William Shakespeare

  Trembling fear, as fowl hear falcon’s bells.
            —William Shakespeare

Fear is like a cloak which old men huddle
About their love, as if to keep it warm.
