“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself – nameless, unreasoning, unjustified, terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.”
- Franklin D. Roosevelt (First Inaugural Address, March 4, 1933)
“Fear is a tyrant and a despot, more terrible than the rack, more potent than the snake.”
- Edgar Wallace (The Clue of the Twisted Candle)
