    Fear believes-courage doubts. Fear falls upon the earth and prays--courage stands erect and thinks. Fear retreats--courage advances. Fear is barbarism--courage is civilization. Fear believes in witchcraft, devils and ghosts. Fear is religion, courage is science. Robert Ingersoll

    Fear, worry and anxiety prevent rational thought.

    Tell me how you can have courage without fear?

    If you have no fear you can have no courage.

    I will grant that too much fear is counter-productive and paralysing.
    No fear however can be equally dangerous.

    I think you have found your niche. Maybe you should study Philosophy.

    heh, I don't think many philosophers would agree with you.

    Yes indeed, but barring a debate about my skill or otherwise at internet forum debating,
    what I am or am not good at, is of no relevance here.
    And none of your business ;-)

    Regardless of source or relevance to the topic, googlefudge spoke the truth. There is no courage without fear.

    Don't get offended, I guess my attempt to be helpful was awkwardly
    worded.

    True, but there is plenty of fear without courage!

    Believe or not, even though I agree, I thought that statement funny.
