„Fear is good in small amounts, but when it is a constant, pounding companion, it cuts away at who you are“

—  Christopher Paolini, kniha Inheritance

Murtagh, in parting words to Eragon
Zdroj: Inheritance (2011)
Kontext: When you teach them—teach them not to fear. Fear is good in small amounts, but when it is a constant, pounding companion, it cuts away at who you are and makes it hard to do what is right.

„Therefore be amazed, you great and small who fear God, and you men of God, eloquent speakers, listen and contemplate.“

—  Saint Patrick 5th-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland 385 - 461

The Confession (c. 452?)
Kontext: Therefore be amazed, you great and small who fear God, and you men of God, eloquent speakers, listen and contemplate. Who was it summoned me, a fool, from the midst of those who appear wise and learned in the law and powerful in rhetoric and in all things? Me, truly wretched in this world, he inspired before others that I could be — if I would — such a one who, with fear and reverence, and faithfully, without complaint, would come to the people to whom the love of Christ brought me and gave me in my lifetime, if I should be worthy, to serve them truly and with humility.
