Don’t Be Afraid of Anything.

Warning: You may not be able to get this song out of your head.

This little boy tells us quite convincingly that we should not be afraid of anything.

(Disclosure: He is my nephew and definitely not a monster!)

Some inspiring quotes about fear:

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
~ Nelson Mandela

Always do what you are afraid to do.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.
~ Mark Twain

We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face… we must do that which we think we cannot.
~ Eleanor Roosevelt
