“Do not be controlled by your fear of the future. You will only create a negative reality for yourself.”
Brea Essex, Foreshadow

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly.”
Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai, The Teaching of Buddha

“Do not be controlled by your fear of the future. You will only create a negative reality for yourself.”
Brea Essex, Foreshadow

“Being terrified but going ahead and doing what must be done—that's courage. The one who feels no fear is a fool, and the one who lets fear rule him is a coward.”
Piers Anthony, Castle Roogna
