Fear of the unknown

 "For as children tremble and fear everything in the blind darkness, so we in the light sometimes fear what is no more to be feared than the things that children in the dark hold in terror and imagine will come true.  This terror, therefore, and darkness of the mind must be dispersed, not by the rays of the sun nor the bright shaft of daylight, but by the aspect and law of nature."
---Lucretius: De Rerum Natura, III


  1. Way too many people live their lives according to their personal perception of how other people want them to behave.

  2. Way too many people live their lives with no thought of the consequence of their behavior on other people.
