in time of fear is government thrown back to its
primitive and sole function of self-defense and
the many interests of which it is the guardian

is no trust more sacred than the one the world
holds with children. There is no duty more
important than ensuring that their rights
are respected, that their welfare is protected,

for success, not perfection. Never give up your right
to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability
to learn new things and move forward with your life.
Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism.
Confronting your fears and allowing yourself the right
to be human can, paradoxically, make yourself a happier
and more productive person.

weapons play on our deepest fears and pander to
our darkest instincts. They corrode our sense
of humanity, numb our capacity for moral outrage,
and make thinkable the unimaginable. They prey
on democracies and totalitarian societies alike,
shrinking the norms of civilized behavior and
dimming the prospects for escaping the savagery
so powerfully imprinted on our genetic code.

first of the action that is right to take, think
later about coping with one's fears.

does not fare well where poverty and deprivation
reign. It does not flourish where there is ignorance
and a lack of education and information. Repression,
injustice and exploitation are inimical with peace.
Peace is gravely threatened by inter-group fear
and envy and by the unleashing of unrealistic
expectations. Racial, class and religious intolerance
and prejudice are its mortal enemies."
-- Frederik W.
we diminish the stimulant of fear, we must increase
to prisoners the incitements of hope, in proportion
as we extinguish the terrors of the law, we should
awaken and strengthen the control of the conscience.”
-- Dorothea Dix
