“Everyone has talent. What's rare is the courage to follow it to the dark places where it leads.”
Erica Jong

“I have accepted fear as part of life – specifically the fear of change... I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: turn back....”
Erica Jong

Erica Jong, Fear of Flying
