„My small experience in the conquest of fear can be condensed into these four words: Calmly resting! quiet trust!“

—  Basil King Canadian writer 1859 - 1928
Context: My small experience in the conquest of fear can be condensed into these four words: Calmly resting! quiet trust! That amid the turmoil of the time and the feverishness of our days it is always easy I do not pretend. Still less do I pretend that I accomplish it. I have said, a few lines above, that I tried. Trying is as far as I have gone; but even trying is productive of wonderful results. Chapter VIII : The Fear Of Death And Abundance Of Life, § V
