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.
These words were crafted by Frank Herbert as part of his Dune series of award-winning science fiction writing. They have stayed with me. I am not ashamed to say that I pray them.
