Wisdom > Fear

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd.  There is something feeble and a little contemptible about a man who cannot face the perils of life without the help of comfortable myths.  Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.  The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.” – Bertrand Russell
