Defeat the fear of death and welcome the death of fear. -G. Gordon Liddy

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
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.

Tell me, was there ever fear within me? You, my ghola, my friend, was there ever fear in I, Leto, the pre-born Tyrant?

I see it in you to say 'no', as the expedient reply to your Duke, to your Emperor. I see you looking at what I made of myself, what I made of humanity, and you think 'no' again. My dear Duncan, the Litany is not a denial of fear. The Litany is rising above the fear that is in all mankind.

And I see in your heart, in the brief hesitation, the true answer your Mentat mind found was 'yes'. That I had known fear, and surmounted it.

What fear did I possess? That, Duncan, is something I shall not reveal. You may one day learn it...or one like you.
