The more a person believes in God, the less he is afraid of other people.
Do not despair. Do not be disappointed if you see that you cannot accomplish all the good which you would like to accomplish. If you fall, try to stand up; try to overcome the obstacle before you. Get to the heart of the matter, to the essence of things.
— Marcus Aurelius
Those who fear people do not fear God; those who fear God do not fear people.
He who is not afraid of anything, and who is ready to give his life for a righteous cause, is much stronger than he whom other people fear and who has the lives of other people in his power.
Look for the better men among those who are despised.
Do what you think is necessary, and do not expect reward. Remember that a stupid person is a bad judge of clever deeds.
You want to save yourself from the power of other people – give yourself to the power of God. If you see yourself as being in the power of God, then people cannot do anything to you.
