“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings over 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. ”
Frank Herbert

I read the book so long ago, and it is this passage that sticks to me. I used to tell it to my daughter, paraphrased and in so many words, when she would get upset.
