I've got a lot of courage, but I've also got a lot of fear. You should
allow yourself to be scared. It's one of the prime emotions. You might
almost enjoy it, funny as it sounds, and find that you can get over it

do it. I don't think I'm more courageous than most people. I'm an even
mixture of all those prime emotions.
