That STE- should be STEM, STEP or STEW. I think STEP is the most probable.

A-RAI- must be afraid.
O-T must be out.
-EE-S is most probably be feels, deems, seeks, seems, heeds, needs.
-OR-- might be coral, corps, force, forge, forte, forum, gorge, horde, horse, Koran, lorry, moral, Norse, north, torch, torso, words, works, world, worry, worst, worth. Judging by the theme of the quote I think it's probably 'world' or 'worry'.

AFRAID

Since you guessed AFRAID and OUT, I'll include all F's, D's, and U's.

'IS AFRAID TO FACE THE WORLD' is obvious.

'DA-' is either DAD or DAY.

'-EEDS' should be 'NEEDS'. The only other possibilities are HEEDS and FEEDS.

It looks like a rather obscure quote.

I'll include all C's, W's and L's since that part is the only one that you actually guessed.

DA- should be DAY.

-EEDS should be NEEDS.

DAY, NEEDS

Now the only mystery is -A-.

b, g, j, k, m, n, q, v, x, y, z

I'm guessing MAN because of the 'he'.

THE DAY A MAN IS AFRAID TO FACE THE WORLD IS THE DAY HE NEEDS TO STEP OUT

That is correct. That quote is from the Western movie Firecreek. Funny, I just saw an advertisement for that movie with the quote in the advertisement about 10 minutes ago. Freaky.

Your turn.

No search engine could get me that! We must live in different dimensions!

OK, this is a place.
