The only thing to be afraid of is fear itself.
Be good to the one person who needs your respect and gentleness more than any other person.

During his stretch, Briggs is likely to get the idea that he will be better off if he succumbs to the pressure of participating in a ritual to swear allegiance to others, namely to one person for the rest of his life. Read the full story
