The way the Establishment deals with people like me is to ignore them. When you become unignorable, they will try to smear you, and that's what I feared for a long time. Now I have somehow vaulted into this space where it's difficult for someone to smear me because it would look as though they were being vindictive and spiteful.
Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.
An objective truth and individual reason are feared above all.

Lyndon B. Johnson
I was apprehensive. I feared every time I talked about poetry, it would be filtered through the lens of race, sex, and age.

Since it is difficult to join them together, it is safer to be feared than to be loved when one of the two must be lacking.
I grew up with J. Edgar Hoover. He was the G-man, a hero to everybody, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation was the big, feared organization. He was ahead of his time as far as building up forensic evidence and fingerprinting. But he took down a lot of innocent people, too.
It is not suffering as such that is most deeply feared but suffering that degrades.
People always fear change. People feared electricity when it was invented, didn't they? People feared coal, they feared gas-powered engines... There will always be ignorance, and ignorance leads to fear. But with time, people will come to accept their silicon masters.

We are facing a storm that most of us have long feared.
The Marines in Korea never feared 'friendly fire' or artillery coming from the South Koreans - from their allies - like they did later in Vietnam, fighting with the South Vietnamese. The Koreans could be trusted.
David Douglas Duncan
It is much more secure to be feared than to be loved.
Virtue is more to be feared than vice, because its excesses are not subject to the regulation of conscience.
Courage is... the knowledge of how to fear what ought to be feared and how not to fear what ought not to be feared.
Apple Computer would not have reached its current peak of success if it had feared to roll the dice and launch products that didn't always hit the mark.

It's easy to look at the vampires as a metaphor for any feared or misunderstood group. It's also easy to look at them as a metaphor for a shadow organization that says one thing and has a completely different agenda on their mind, and anybody who gets in their way, they just get rid of them. Does that sound familiar?
The censors have always had a field day with James Joyce, specifically with 'Ulysses,' but also with his other writings.

I have always thought that what the critics hated and feared about Joyce is his cry for human freedom.

Acting in anger and hatred throughout my life, I frequently precipitated what I feared most, the loss of friendships and the need to rely upon the very people I'd abused.
Those who love to be feared fear to be loved.
Saint Francis de Sales
