The only thing we have to fear
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. American President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, coined this phrase in 1933 and it is the one that most often comes to mind when seeking to help people towards their emotional and mental liberation. It is a haunting phrase sure enough and there’s no doubt that it’s an easy one to use, like so many other clichés, without thinking too much about it. So, what does it mean? Fear is an all-pervasive emotion and, arguably, the most powerful.
