Fear of Fairy Tales

“Fear lurks in everyone. The one who always asserts to not know fear is mentally damaged or a fool.” —Max Horkheimer

“Adults live in fear of one kind or another—fear of failure, poverty, isolation, fear of loss of soul in the destruction of the earth. Those fears create a mood of “being lost in the forest.” Men in their twenties and thirties respond to those fears by leaning on a corporation, or an addiction…” —Robert Bly
