When I was in high school, I read the novel Dune. After reading it, I wrote down a quote from the book and carried it with me for the next 30+ years. It helps to me remember that I will always have fears and it gives me the strength to face them. The next time you have fear, I hope you can remember this quote, and that it helps.
“Fear is the mind killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me, and when it has gone past me, I will turn to see fear’s path. Where fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” Frank Herbert – Dune
