Hopeful quote of the day 9 March 2017

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

Franklin D. Roosevelt


Quite an interesting quote, but one could argue that the certain amount of fear may keep us alive, for example I am afraid of snakes and I would not like to be without some fear in the jungle where there are many snakes, just my thoughts.


Benjamin Franklin once said: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

@metime with all due respect, you would do better to quote me than Benjamin Who.

There ya go! :wink:

Fear is an awful thing. I hate paranoia! It’s a sickness all it’s own. My delusion wouldn’t be nearly as bad if I wasn’t paranoid on top of it.

Yes, fear is an awful thing
