| Fear, like spare diet, starves the fevers of lust and quenches the flames of hell.|
Oliver Wendell Holmes
| Fear on fear, like light reflected from the dancing wave, visits all places, but can rest in none.|
|As corn oergrown by weeds, so heedful fear|
Is almost chokd by unresisted lust.
| Trembling fear, as fowl hear falcons bells.|
|Fear is like a cloak which old men huddle|
About their love, as if to keep it warm.
