Litany Against Fear

"I must not fear.
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."

-- FrankHerbert's BeneGesserit LitanyAgainstFear.

Official Silly Useless Factoid: In the animated series Earthworm Jim, which appeared on US television in the mid-1990s, Jim's sidekick Peter Puppy would in times of peril recite the LitanyAgainstFear. This was one of several clever (by US mainstream TV standards) in-jokes that the series used. - JayOsako
