Quotes: Primal Fear
Very softly down the glade runs a waiting, watching shade,
And the whisper spreads and widens far and near.

And the sweat is on thy brow, for he passes even now—
He is Fear, O Little Hunter, he is Fear!
— "The Song of the Little Hunter", Rudyard Kipling

I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

Anxiety when confronted by unknown life has not been sufficiently appreciated. The fears unleashed by contact with a new life form are not understood and cannot be entirely predicted in advance. But the most likely consequence of contact is absolute terror.
Norman Johnson, Sphere
