Courage is not the absence of fear it is pressing forward while the feeling of fear is present.
— Pete Hook
Suicide's a long-term solution to a short-term problem
— Audre Lorde
We can learn to work and speak when we are afraid in the same way we have learned to work and speak when we are tired. For we have been socialized to respect fear more than our own needs for language and definition, and while we wait in silence for that final luxury of fearlessness, the weight of that silence will choke us.
