Fears and wisdom

Quotes and Notes, #93 February 2

“To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.”–Bertrand Russell

First we must get to know our fears, isolate them, study them, and perhaps name them Jim or Roger or something like that. After that we can accept them, defeat them, learn to live with them, give them up as silly, laugh at them, or, as my brother Tom says, “pack them in the back of your mind and pretend they don’t exist.” Help someone else to conquer their fears today by giving them a free nod and a smile to use as a weapon.

Everything is going to be all right.

John P. Schulz
