People are afraid, and when people are afraid, when their pie is shrinking, they look for somebody to hate. They look for somebody to blame. And a real leader speaks to anxiety and to fear and allays those fears, assuages anxiety.
Henry Louis Gates
Anxiety is the beginning of conscience, which is the parent of the soul but is not compatible with innocence.

I have, since the age of about 2, been a twitchy bundle of phobias, fears, and neuroses. And I have, since the age of 10, when I was first taken to a mental hospital for evaluation and then referred to a psychiatrist for treatment, tried in various ways to overcome my anxiety.
Anxiety, it just stops your life.

Practically everybody knows what it's like to feel anxious, worried, nervous, afraid, uptight, or panicky.

David D. Burns
