James E. Faust

Robert Anton Wilson
As much as we thirst for approval we dread condemnation.
I dread handshakes. I've got some problems with my hands, and everywhere I go, people want to impress me with their grip. To make it worse, now women are coming up with that firm shake. So I'll say, 'Gimme five!' If a boy wants a handshake, I'll just give him a hug.
It is the perpetual dread of fear, the fear of fear, that shapes the face of a brave man.

Marissa Jaret Winokur
