And just in case, from “Dune”

I must not fear.
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 I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

**Note from moonfire:  I have loved this since I first read Dune, many years ago.  I think it is something to be shared with non-Dune readers.  Fear comes from many places… internal, external…  to learn how to relax and focus in the face of our fears is important.  How many times has it dictated a path taken or not taken?
