Quote of the day

"Try a thing you haven't done three times. Once, to get over the fear of doing it. Twice, to learn how to do it. And a third time to figure out whether you like it or not." ~Virgil Thomson

A few more fear quotes (there's a lot of it about):

Always do what you are afraid to do - Ralph Waldo Emerson  ["always"?? Always beware of adamant instructions, more likely!]

To him who is in fear everything rustles - Sophocles

I understand that fear is my friend, but not always. Never turn your back on fear. It should always be in front of you, like a thing that might have to be killed. - Hunter S Thompson

Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear. ~Ambrose Redmoon
