Swift as a deer. Quiet as a shadow.
Fear cuts deeper than swords.
Quick as a snake. Calm as still water.
Fear cuts deeper than swords.
Strong as a bear. Fierce as a wolverine.
Fear cuts deeper than swords.
The man who fears losing has already lost.
Fear cuts deeper than swords.
Fear cuts deeper than swords.
Fear cuts deeper than swords.
Arya Stark, A Song of Ice and Fire

I must not fear.
Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.
Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear, Dune

"Don't die. Be a big girl and don't die."
Lovelace, Wolf 359

Sometimes I tell myself I'm okay
I repeat it like a mantra
I'm OK
I'm OK
I'm OK
Because I'm afraid if I stop
Even for a moment
I will drown in all of the reasons I am not

"I don't wanna go, I don't wanna go sir, please. Please, I don't wanna go. I don't wanna go..."
Peter Parker, Avengers: Infinity War

Mafala: In this part of Africa, we ALL have a saying – whenever something bad happens, we just throw our hands to the sky and say HASA DIGA EEBOWAI!
Elder Cunningham: Hasa Diga Eebowai?
Mafala: It's the only way to get through all these troubled times. There's war, poverty, famine... but having a saying makes it all seem better!
The Book of Mormon, "Hasa Diga Eebowai" (which translates to "Fuck You, God")

Apollo: I'm fine...I'm fine...I'm Apollo Justice, and I'm fine...
Trucy: Is Apollo okay? He's been muttering to himself all morning...
Athena: He's been like that since yesterday. Guess the pressure of today's trial is getting to him.
Trucy: Poor Polly...he's really tearing himself up over all of this.
Apollo: Yikes! Athena! Wh-when did you get here?
Athena: Try to relax a little bit, will you? You're getting yourself way too worked up.
Apollo: Y-yeah...But I'm all right. I’m fine!

Trucy: There he goes again. It's almost like he's chanting a prayer.
Apollo: I'm fine...I'm fine...I'm Apollo Justice, and I'm fine! (Trucy jumps back, alarmed)
Athena: If you say so, Apollo...
Baliff: The trial will start momentarily. Is the defense ready?
"No, I'll be fine. I will be fine. What do I usually do to get un-scared? I tell myself jokes. Jokes are so hard. Easy jokes. What are easy jokes? Chuck Norris jokes. Uh... Chuck Norris can build a snowman out of rain. Uh, uh... Chuck Norris can drown a fish. Oh man, I feel great. This is really- this is a great idea."
