"So, first of all, let me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself -- nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance." FDR's first inaugural address
I had a long post on fear last night, which I removed.
I thought about it, and it could have been taken as insensitive to the many people suffering right now. While President Roosevelt had many issues and failings, I think this quote is great. And definitely appropriate for the place we are in currently as a country.
