Love is an ideal thing, marriage is a real thing. A confusion of the real with the ideal never goes unpunished.

Let fear show you

Don’t let your fear stop you. Let it show you what you must do.

When you are taking on new challenges, the ones that stretch your abilities, you will feel fear. That’s good, and of great value.

Fear is certainly not anything to be avoided. It is something from which you can learn, something through which you can grow stronger.

Let your fear show you what is most important to you. Let your fear show you how you can build your courage.

Real progress is made by doing what is uncomfortable to you. Real progress is made by doing what you fear.

Accept, acknowledge, respect and appreciate your fears, and find new fulfillment in working through them. The dreams and aspirations that push you through your fears are the ones very much worth following.

— Ralph Marston
