“This Is Just To Say”
“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.

“… the best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen nor even touched, but just felt in the heart.“
