No passion so effectually robs the mind of all its powers of acting and reasoning as fear.
Henry Louis Mencken
The one permanent emotion of the inferior man is fear - fear of the unknown, the complex, the inexplicable. What he wants above everything else is safety.
There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.
