There can never be a complete confidence in a power which is excessive.

Cornelius Tacitus

They who lack talent expect things to happen without effort. They ascribe failure to a lack of inspiration or ability, or to misfortune, rather than to insufficient application. At the core of every true talent there is an awareness of the difficulties inherent in any achievement, and the confidence that by persistence and patience something worthwhile will be realized. Thus talent is a species of vigor.

Eric Hoffer

We can gain no lasting peace if we approach it with suspicion and mistrust or with fear. We can gain it only if we proceed with the understanding, the confidence, and the courage which flow from conviction.

Franklin D. Roosevelt, Fourth Inaugural Address, Jan. 20, 1945

We do not so much need the help of our friends as the confidence of their help when in need.

Epicurus

We gain amazing confidence and courage on every occasion, invariably, when we work outside our comfort zone. When we are outside our element, we have no choice but to challenge ourselves in order to win against all odds, and in the face of fear and uncertainty. In my view, we offer our best performance when we have to operate outside our comfort zone, just like a meteor enters Earth's gravitational field and shines with the brightest light that illuminates the sky. Hence we mustn't fear leaving our comfort zone or being outside our element any time. Instead, we should challenge the status quo to offer the best performance in an unfamiliar territory. This is how we reinvent ourselves, and become the better versions of ourselves than ever before.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot.

We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.

Sir Winston Churchill, Speech, 4. June, 1940

We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and the oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills we shall never surrender.

Winston Churchill

When I was as you are now, towering in the confidence of twenty-one, little did I suspect that I should be at forty-nine, what I now am.

Samuel Johnson

When I was growing up in a small village in India, the fairy-tales and children's stories led me to believe that villlains and bad guys look like monsters, and they are really very rude and crude in their behavior. The movies during my generation also strengthened that perseption. As I grew up and travelled around the world, I soon realized the reality that the bad guys and villains are often good looking, well-behaved, silky smooth and sharp and smart...often too smart to gain your complete confidence before their brutal betrayal and deceitfully back-stabbing you, when you least expect it. We all discover this harsh reality hard way, after getting entangled at least once in their tantalizing tangled web of deception, that appearances can often be deceptive, and too good to be true - always! And yet, not all the times but only occasionally, the dreamer and optimist inside us likes to believe those fairy-tells and the happy-ending movies from childhood....

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

When salvation is viewed as man's program, it is left up to man as to whether he will let God do this or that, but when it is viewed as God's program, there is a confidence and a certainty that no one whom God regenerates will be a carnal Christian.

You are never dedicated to something you have complete confidence in. No one is fanatically shouting that the sun is going to rise tomorrow. They know it is going to rise tomorrow. When people are fanatically dedicated to political or religious faiths or any other kinds of dogmas or goals, its always because these dogmas or goals are in doubt.

Robert M. Pirsig
