a quote for the day by Daniel Berrigan

Wednesday, January 7, 2015
“I think fear does two amazing things; maybe they are just aspects of one thing. First it creates the impression that a person is facing a god, usually a god of war or god of violence; fear makes the adversary look superhuman. Secondly, it creates a new psyche in one’s self – a very disrupted, distracted, terrorized person, the opposite of a stable, self-aware person. Two aspects, one fear. If one’s soul is so enslaved as to bow to the god, one is already destroyed.”
