Human beings the world over need freedom and security that they may be able to realize their full potential.

It is not power that corrupts but fear. Fear of losing power corrupts those who wield it and fear of the scourge of power corrupts those who are subject to it.

The only real prison is fear, and the only real freedom is freedom from fear.

Fearlessness may be a gift but perhaps more precious is the courage . . . that comes from cultivating the habit of refusing to let fear dictate one’s actions, courage that could be described as ‘grace under pressure.’
