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.

Bene Gesserit Litany against Fear
--from Dune, by Frank Herbert

'The jump is so frightening between where I am and where I want to be. Because of all I may become I will close my eyes and leap.'

One of my favorite quotes.... it's gotten me through a lot of very scary things....
