Litany Against Fear – Frank Herbert

Always liked this quote …

“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.”

 

Frank Herbert

Came across this quote today – it’s a quote for all “wrong thinkers”, “wrong speakers” and free speech/1st amendment champions worldwide … dunno if Mr Orwell will save us from the thought police though, even though he did warn us …
