I was reminded of this quote tonight when answering a friend's email about online privacy.

Fear has its use, but cowardice has none. I may not put my hand into the jaws of a snake, but the very sight of the snake need not strike terror into me.

The trouble is that we often die many times before death overtakes us.

-- Mahatma Gandhi

It's interesting how the mind, in an attempt to keep us safe from harm, will jump ahead to conclusions and cultivate worry, which in turn only causes us unecessary harm.
