I found three of the quotes in this series about love and fear among seven others on this site: 10 Quotes about Love and Fear.
Quote 1 is by Marianne Williamson, a woman who has inspired me and millions of others over the years. If you don’t know who she is, she’s got a nifty site and a newsletter you can sign up for here: Marianne.com
Quote 2 is by Oprah Winfrey, another inspiring and amazing woman. Her site is Oprah.com — it’s a bit hard to load on slower computers because it contains a lot of footage from her TV show, but well worth the wait. My favorite video series is “Super Soul Sunday.”
The third quote is from the New Testament book “1 John.” I wanted to credit the exact author of that letter, but I learned today reading after this interesting article that the authorship of 1 John has never been determined. Experts aren’t even sure that the author of the letters 2 John and 3 John (known as “The Elder”) is the same author as the first. Since the Bible is one of my favorite books of study, I found this fascinating.
The last quote is actually two quotes by C.S. Lewis, author of Chronicles of Narnia, The Screwtape Letters, Letters to Malcolm, The Problem of Pain and many others. His romance with American Joy Davidman became the basis of beautiful book by Brian Selby which became an equally beautiful movie starring Anthony Hopkins and Debra Winger, Shadowlands. Since i didn’t find a quote by Lewis that contained both words in this month’s theme (“love” and “fear”) I combined one of each. One of my favorite quotes by C.S. Lewis is something he said to Joy one day in Shadowlands, not long after he discovered she was sick:
“Pain is the price we will pay – then – for the love we have — now. That’s’ the deal.”
We make this deal every time we love.
