Never fear anything!

"A man whose personality is fully developed never fears anything; he cringes not and never feels inferior to anyone no matter the colour, nature or strength of such a one. He is self-reliant and will resist any form of enslavement until the last breath in him is exhausted. He may be an employee or a servant but he is a self-confident and a courageous servant who does his work with efficiency and probity but with no thought of servitude. His breadth of mind enables him to exercise his freedom in such a manner as not to endanger the interests and freedom of others. He is a citizen of the world - free from narrow prejudices. He is what he is because the three main constituents of his entity: his body, brain and mind are fully developed."
