“Fear is a basic emotion; it's part of our native equipment, and like all normal emotions, it has a positive function to perform. Comforting formulas for getting rid of anxiety may be just the wrong solution. Books about 'peace of mind' can be bad medicine. To be afraid when one should be afraid is good sense.”
Dorothy Fosdick, U.S. foreign affairs expert
(1913 - 1997)
