Fear is the mind killer

By science writer Maggie Koerth

By science writer Maggie Koerth, adapted from the litany against fear from the novel Dune:

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.
