Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Evangeline Lilly
#1. Saying 'no' is not hard for me; it's scarier for me to say 'yes.' I'm actually more afraid of commitment than of saying 'no.' #Quote by Evangeline Lilly
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Elisa Marie Hopkins
#2. Have you been listening to a word I've been saying? I don't do games. I don't do one-night stands. I don't do affairs. Usually, when I meet a woman and take interest in her, I will be loyal to her, and only her. I expect the same. I don't share well. I'm all for exclusiveness in everything I do, and own. I'm not afraid of commitment or hard work. You're right; I'm not new to this. I've been in many relationships. This is good news, Sophie. It means I won't waste your time. Rest assured, if I'm with you it's because that's exactly where I want to be. If ever I want out of a relationship, I leave. My commitment ends there. It's simple enough and this is the only thing that makes sense to me. #Quote by Elisa Marie Hopkins
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Garry Shandling
#3. Because I am afraid of commitment. This movie certainly has some bearing and is some reflection of my real feeling about relationships, because I do have commitment issues. My friends tell me I have intimacy problems, but they don't know me, so who cares what they think? #Quote by Garry Shandling
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Liv Morris
#4. 1. Someday there will be a woman-one who takes your breath away. You won't be afraid of commitment, you'll be afraid of living without her. That's when you'll know. She'll be your reason to exist. You'll want to move heaven and earth to make her happy and see her smiling face. God help you then. He's the only one who can. #Quote by Liv Morris
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Jonathan Franzen
#5. There came a time, however, when death ceased to be the enforcer of finitude and began to look, instead, like the last opportunity for radical transformation, the only plausible portal to the infinite.
But to be seen as the finite carcass in a sea of blood and bone chips and gray matter
to inflict that version of himself on other people
was a violation of privacy so profound it seemed it would outlive him.
He was also afraid that it might hurt.
And there was a very important question that he still wanted answered. His children were coming, Gary and Denise and maybe even Chip, his intellectual son. It was possible that Chip, if he came, could answer the very important question.
And the question was:
The question was: #Quote by Jonathan Franzen
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Edward Hirsch
#6. A Partial History of My Stupidity

Traffic was heavy coming off the bridge
and I took the road to the right, the wrong one,
and got stuck in the car for hours.

Most nights I rushed out into the evening
without paying attention to the trees,
whose names I didn't know,
or the birds, which flew heedlessly on.

I couldn't relinquish my desires
or accept them, and so I strolled along
like a tiger that wanted to spring,
but was still afraid of the wildness within.

The iron bars seemed invisible to others,
but I carried a cage around inside me.

I cared too much what other people thought
and made remarks I shouldn't have made.
I was slient when I should have spoken.

Forgive me, philosophers,
I read the Stoics but never understood them.

I felt that I was living the wrong life,
spiritually speaking,
while halfway around the world
thousands of people were being slaughtered,
some of them by my countrymen.

So I walked on--distracted, lost in thought--
and forgot to attend to those who suffered
far away, nearby.

Forgive me, faith, for never having any.

I did not believe in God,
who eluded me. #Quote by Edward Hirsch
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Paulo Coelho
#7. The only thing she could do now was to shed a few tears, feeling rather afraid of herself, an intelligent young woman, who had everything going for her, but who tended to make the wrong decisions. She just hoped that this time she was right. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Osho
#8. When death is certain, fear disappears. Fear is only there because of death. But when death is certain and there is no way to avoid it, what is the point of being afraid? #Quote by Osho
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Markus Zusak
#9. A GUIDED TOUR OF SUFFERING: To your left, perhaps your right, perhaps even straight ahead, you find a small black room. In it sits a Jew. He is scum. He is starving. He is afraid. Please - try not to look away. #Quote by Markus Zusak
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Aldous Huxley
#10. I'm afraid of losing my obscurity. Genuineness only thrives in the dark. Like celery. #Quote by Aldous Huxley
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#11. The important thing is first to find out what you are afraid of, to understand it and not run away from it. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Tobias Wolff
#12. That, for me, is a very important test of a young writer's commitment because most of them are going to have to continue doing that when they've finished the program. #Quote by Tobias Wolff
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Franz Kafka
#13. He is terribly afraid of dying because he hasn't yet lived. #Quote by Franz Kafka
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Jack Kornfield
#14. It is our commitment to wholeness that matters, the willingness to unfold in every deep aspect of our being. #Quote by Jack Kornfield
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by R.C. Sproul
#15. I'm afraid that in the United States of America today the prevailing doctrine of justification is not justification by faith alone. It is not even justification by good works or by a combination of faith and works. The prevailing notion of justification in our culture today is justification by death. All one has to do to be received into the everlasting arms of God is to die. #Quote by R.C. Sproul
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Steven Spielberg
#16. The most amazing thing for me is that every single person who sees a movie, not necessarily one of my movies, brings a whole set of unique experiences. Now, through careful manipulation and good storytelling, you can get everybody to clap at the same time, to hopefully laugh at the same time, and to be afraid at the same time. #Quote by Steven Spielberg
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Saint Augustine
#17. I too have sworn heedlessly and all the time, I have had this most repulsive and death-dealing habit. I'm telling your graces; from the moment I began to serve God , and saw what evil there is in forswearing oneself, I grew very afraid indeed, and out of fear I applied the brakes to this old, old, habit. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Shannon Dittemore
#18. Hope
The word trills inside me. Like the lyrics of a song I knew once but had forgotten. And now it's here, suddenly. Hope on my tongue and in my heart. I cling to it, afraid of forgetting all over again #Quote by Shannon Dittemore
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Hannah Brencher
#19. If I could write an autobiography for fear, it would read like this:

Hi, my name is Fear. F-E-A-R. But you are going to call me a lot of other things as you start to get closer to me. I'm terribly unoriginal. I'm like every has-been out there, but you give me way more credit than I deserve. You should keep doing that. I like it when you make me bigger than I actually am. I'm going to make you feel alone, and I like it when you believe you're the only one who's ever felt this way. You think I'm custom-catered to fit you, but I'm really no different than the brand of me your best friend wears. I'm a ballad lurking in the hearts of a billion people, and I will do anything to keep you from realizing that I am just the same song on repeat. You all know all my words.
I'm pretty jealous though. I want you alone with me at night. I'm not afraid to say I'm greedy or that I don't want to share you. I'm a territorial lover, and I would rather you not have solid and deep conversations at dinner parties or find a community that doesn't leave your side. I wrote you a story a long time ago, and I don't want you to figure out that you've outgrown the plotline.
I wonder why you don't get over me sometimes, but then the realization hits me: You come back because you know I want you. You come back because you know the sound of my voice. You come back because you know the way I move and how I shut you down. You've stood face-to-face with me so many times and #Quote by Hannah Brencher
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by John Kennedy Toole
#20. Clean, hard-working, dependable, quiet type.' Good God! What kind of monster is this that they want. I am afraid that I could never work for a concern with a worldview like that. #Quote by John Kennedy Toole
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Ann H. Gabhart
#21. Even when the divorce papers had come in the mail, even when he'd finally signed them, he'd still felt married, still felt as if he had to be faithful to those vows even though they were empty and meaningless now. Perhaps that was just because he was afraid of moving past those vows, afraid of starting over. So now he looked straight into the eyes of that fear. The fear of being hurt again. The fear of not being worthy of a woman's love. The fear of failure. #Quote by Ann H. Gabhart
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Dwight L. Moody
#22. When a man is filled with the Word of God you cannot keep him still, If a man has got the Word, he must speak or die. #Quote by Dwight L. Moody
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Osho
#23. I don't see the point in being afraid of death, because in the first place I don't know what is going to be. And secondly, there are only two possibilities: Either I will survive - then there is no question of fear. Or I will not survive - then too there is no problem of fear. If I don't survive there is no problem - when I am not, there cannot be any problem, and if I survive as I am here, if my consciousness survives, there is no problem because I am still there. "Problems were there in life also - I solved them, so if I am there and there are problems I will solve them - and it is always a joy to solve a problem, it gives a challenge. You take the challenge and you move into it, and when you solve it a great release of happiness happens." The fear of #Quote by Osho
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Jessica Clare
#24. Grab hold of the headboard with your one hand, for stability," I tell her. She does but her pussy is still about an inch too high. I think she's afraid she's going to break my face or something, but if anything is breaking off it's my dick because it is so goddamned hard right now a stiff wind could shatter it. "Lower baby. Sit on me." "Won't I suffocate you?" she worries but lowers until that juicy pussy is resting right on top of my mouth. "Oh, baby, if only. #Quote by Jessica Clare
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Andy Kindler
#25. My cat's fully capable of speaking, but he says he's afraid of me turning it into a Kevin James vehicle. #Quote by Andy Kindler
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Oscar Wilde
#26. Up to the present man has hardly cultivated sympathy at all. He has merely sympathy with pain, and sympathy with pain is not the highest form of sympathy. All sympathy is fine, but sympathy with suffering is the least fine mode. It is tainted with egotism. It is apt to become morbid. There is in it a certain element of terror for our own safety. We become afraid that we ourselves might be as the leper or as the blind, and that no man would have care of us. It is curiously limiting, too. One should sympathise with the entirety of life, not with life's sores and maladies merely, but with life's joy and beauty and energy and health and freedom. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Rachel Caine
#27. You shouldn't be afraid of me because I'm a vampire. You ought to be scared because you just trash-talked my girlfriend to her face.
Michael #Quote by Rachel Caine
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Sparky Anderson
#28. If a team is in a positive frame of mind, it will have a good attitude. If it has a good attitude, it will make a commitment to playing the game right. If it plays the game right, it will win-unless, of course, it doesn't have enough talent to win, and no manager can make goose-liver pate out of goose feathers, so why worry? #Quote by Sparky Anderson
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#29. Haven't you heard of that madman who in the bright
morning lit a lantern and ran around the marketplace crying incessantly,
'I'm looking for God! l'm looking for God!' Since many of those who
did not believe in God were standing around together just then, he
caused great laughter. Has he been lost, then? asked one. Did he lose his
way like a child? asked another. Or is he hiding? Is he afraid of us? Has
he gone to sea? Emigrated? - Thus they shouted and laughed, one
interrupting the other. The madman jumped into their midst and
pierced them with his eyes. 'Where is God?' he cried; 'I'll tel1 you! We
have kil/ed him - you and I! Wc are all his murderers. But how did wc do
this? How were we able to drink up the sea? Who gave us the spange to
wipe away the entire horizon? What were we doing when we unchained
this earth from its sun? Where is it moving to now? Where are we
moving to? Away from all suns? Are wc not continually falling? And
backwards, sidewards, forwards, in all directions? Is there still an up and
a down? Aren't we straying as though through an infinite nothing? Isn't
empty space breathing at us? Hasn't it got colder? Isn't night and more
night coming again and again? Don't lanterns have to be lit in the
morning? Do we still hear nothing of the noise of the grave-diggers who
are burying God? Do we still smell nothing of the divine decomposition?
- Gods, too, decompo #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Oliver Markus Malloy
#30. Envy is the desire to have what someone else has. Jealousy is the fear of losing what you have. The more insecure you are about yourself or your relationship, the more jealous you are, because you are afraid to lose your significant other to someone else. #Quote by Oliver Markus Malloy
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Malala Yousafzai
#31. All I want is an education, and I am afraid of no one. #Quote by Malala Yousafzai
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by John Osborne
#32. Don't be afraid of being emotional. You won't die of it. #Quote by John Osborne
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Akshay Vasu
#33. I don't want to swim on the surface anymore and I never want to pretend again that I know you completely. Let me dive deep inside you, take me in and allow me to look into your
secrets, make me feel every breath I take and crave for it more . Carry me to your darker side where you are afraid to allow
anyone. Pull me deep inside and make me one of your secrets. #Quote by Akshay Vasu
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Steven Pinker
#34. This mindset, known as loss aversion, the sunk-cost fallacy, and throwing good money after bad, is patently irrational, but it is surprisingly pervasive in human decision-making.65 People stay in an abusive marriage because of the years they have already put into it, or sit through a bad movie because they have already paid for the ticket, or try to reverse a gambling loss by doubling their next bet, or pour money into a boondoggle because they've already poured so much money into it. Though psychologists don't fully understand why people are suckers for sunk costs, a common explanation is that it signals a public commitment. The person is announcing: "When I make a decision, I'm not so weak, stupid, or indecisive that I can be easily talked out of it." In a contest of resolve like an attrition game, loss aversion could serve as a costly and hence credible signal that the contestant is not about to concede, preempting his opponent's strategy of outlasting him just one more round. #Quote by Steven Pinker
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by James Gray
#35. The word 'operatic' is often misused to mean over the top, where someone is over-emoting. And that does a terrible disservice because 'operatic' to me means a commitment and a belief to the emotion of the moment that is sincere. #Quote by James Gray
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#36. He would not beg Zoya to stay. It was not in his nature to plead with anyone, and that was not the pact they shared. They did not look to each other for comfort. They kept each other marching. They kept each other strong. So he would not find another excuse to get her talking again. He would not tell her he was afraid to be left alone with the thing he might become, and he would not ask her to leave the lamp burning, a child's bit of magic to ward off the dark.
But he was relieved when she did it anyway. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Nikita Dudani
#37. Say it aloud! Let everyone hear... I want a crazy lover who isn't afraid of shouting my name from rooftops, or in busy streets, or during an argument. I want a crazy love where freedom sparks in, two bodies and souls are sewed together, and there is nothing artificial nor any kind of societal pressure. Is it hard to search or too much to ask for? #Quote by Nikita Dudani
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Les Brown
#38. A lot of people do not muster the courage to live their dreams because they are afraid to die. #Quote by Les Brown
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Jonathan Safran Foer
#39. It's true, I am afraid of dying. I am afraid of the world moving forward without me, of my absence going unnoticed, or worse, being some natural force propelling life on. Is it selfish? Am I such a bad person for dreaming of a world that ends when I do? I don't mean the world ending with respect to me, but every set of eyes closing with mine. #Quote by Jonathan Safran Foer
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#40. Jo couldn't even lose her heart in a decorous manner, but sternly tried to quench her feelings, and failing to do so, led a somewhat agitated life. She was mortally afraid of being laughed at for surrendering, after her many and vehement declarations of independence. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Agatha Christie
#41. Looks a bit fishy to me," said Japp. "He actually had a blowpipe, and look at his manner. All to pieces."
"That is the severity of your official demeanor, my good Japp."
"There's nothing for anyone to be afraid of if they're only telling the truth," said the Scotland Yard man austerely.
Poirot looked at him pityingly. "In verity, I believe that you yourself honestly believe that. #Quote by Agatha Christie
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Lauren Oliver
#42. Sometimes I'm afraid to go to sleep because of what I'm leaving behind. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Max Lucado
#43. God's grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you. It rewires you. From insecure to God secure. From regret-riddled to better-because-of-it. From afraid-to-die to ready-to-fly. Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off.1 #Quote by Max Lucado
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Dean Koontz
#44. These people weren't Navy SEALs or Army Rangers, weren't trained by the best professional warriors in the world, weren't seasoned by a real war in which they had encountered an enemy who fought back. They lacked the honor of SEALs and Rangers, lacked ideals that stiffened the spine in times of peril. They were fanatics, driven by emotion rather than reason. Their commitment was to destruction instead of to the preservation of what was good, and this
commitment made them feel dangerous, therefore powerful and superior. Being dangerous, however, wasn't the same as being powerful and certainly didn't support a claim to superiority. Like all barbarians, they were vulnerable to panic and confusion when the destruction they wished to wreak was visited instead upon them. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Samantha Sotto
#45. A kiss can be dreadfully terrifying for the males of our species, I'm afraid." Rose said knowingly. "Sex is easy. All they really need is a few good thrusts. But when they kiss, they open themselves up and let you in. And that, my dear, makes some men's balls shrink to the size of raisins."
Shelley snorted with laughter.
Dex strode up to her. "Did someone say raisins? I'm starving."
"You might try asking Max for some," Shelley said. "I'm sure he has at least two. #Quote by Samantha Sotto
Afraid Of Commitment quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#46. Why are you afraid of death? Is it perhaps because you do not know how to live? If you knew how to live fully, would you be afraid of death? If you loved the trees, the sunset, the birds, the falling leaf; if you were aware of men and women in tears, of poor people, and really felt love in your heart, would you be afraid of death? Would you? Don't be persuaded by me. Let us think about it together. You do not live with joy, you are not happy, you are not vitally sensitive to things; and is that why you ask what is going to happen when you die? Life for you is sorrow, and so you are much more interested in death. You feel that perhaps there will be happiness after death. But that is a tremendous problem, and I do not know if you want to go into it. After all, fear is at the bottom of all this - fear of dying, fear of living, fear of suffering. If you cannot understand what it is that causes fear and be free of it, then it does not matter very much whether yo u are living or dead. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
