The Fear Card: I

Ere Mor the Peacock flutters, ere the Monkey People cry,
Ere Chil the Kite swoops down a furlong sheer,
Through the Jungle very softly flits a shadow and a sigh
He is Fear, O Little Hunter, he is Fear!

Very softly down the glade runs a waiting, watching shade,
And the whisper spreads and widens far and near;
And the sweat is on thy brow, for he passes even now
He is Fear, O Little Hunter, he is Fear!

     —Rudyard Kipling, from The Second Jungle Book




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, Dune: Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear




Yoda:

 

Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.
