Quotes: Fear Is the Appropriate Response
"Sorry, Venkman, I'm terrified beyond the capacity for rational thought."
Egon Ghostbusters

[Rincewind] always held that panic was the best means of survival; back in the olden days, his theory went, people faced with hungry sabretoothed tigers could be divided very simply into those who panicked and those who stood there saying "What a magnificent brute!" or "Here, kitty, kitty."
Discworld

“Fear is a healthy instinct, not a sign of weakness. It is a natural self-defense mechanism that is common to felines, wolves, hyenas, and most humans. Even fruit bats know fear, and I salute them for it. If you think the world is weird now, imagine how weird it would be if wild beasts had no fear.”
Hunter S. Thompson, Kingdom of Fear: Loathsome Secrets of a Star-Crossed Child in the Final Days of the American Century

When in trouble or in doubt,
Run in circles, scream and shout!
