Where Are the Grownups? | Psychology Today

The thing about fear is that its biologically contagious and chemically upregulated automatically in our bodies. Contrarily, its counterpart, calm, requires active practice and development.
Now if thou would'st
When all have given him o'er
From death to life
Thou might'st him yet recover
