‘Audaces fortuna juvat’ in Latin means Fortune Favours the Brave. Fear is a smoke that holds no substance in itself, yet it chokes. And when its victim yields, it assumes the character of the Arabian jinni, a tiny smoke that grows and crystallizes into a monster and consumes the afraid.
The best way to deal with fear is to have one’s back against the wall. When man creates no room for any resort whatsoever, either the beast or the genius in man comes out. Courage is to fear what food is to hunger. Bill Crosby captures the emptiness of fear aptly: “If you are afraid, then do nothing, and be nothing.” - PHARMASCOPE
