Great quote, Paul. I ready my first biography of Marie Curie when I was around 11 years old... I was crazy impressed with her then and still am to this day.

Hmm, there is so much in the world that I do not understand and may never understand, but it does not cause me fear, haha.

Good morning Paul. FEAR - false evidence appearing real! In these times, false evidence is everywhere, just turn on the news. All reporters have an opinion and nobody arrears the have the facts. The facts, just the facts! Enjoy your day.

When I was 22, in my spare time on board a submarine, I would lay on top of our nuclear reactor and watch the blue glow. I did not fear all the evils of nuclear energy or how it was built into weaponry; I just looked at the perspective of clean energy. No fear just wow Wayne Martin

Hello Paul - the words and thoughts I gather from this quote seem slightly familiar.  Like Nina Hollander, Broker, I remember a biography about Marie Curie from many years ago.  Maybe it's time to explore more about her.  Or perhaps just a rabbit hole excursion for a quick visit.

I respect your perspective of searching out rabbit holes Michael Jacobs

Good morning Paul - that is excellent information to ponder.  It is bad to be paralyzed by fear.

Paul, I fear heights, and pretty sure I will never get over them in my lifetime!

I also have a fear of heights and last year my granddaughter (7) wanted to go to the top of a popular ski resort on a chairlift. This usually wouldn’t be a problem with snow but it was in July and all I could see were rocks beneath me. I did it but it was not easy Joan Cox 🙂

Knowing what we are dealing with in life, is half the battle!  Knowledge is a strong enhancement to overcoming fear.

I must agree with your summation and I thank you for the comment Myrl Jeffcoat

That is an interesting quote by Marie Curie.  I have a friend who has  a few health things going on but refuses to get them checked out.  I'd rather find out and understand what's happening and find a solution.
