Think of all the things people are paranoid about that have a truly miniscule risk. maybe it is elevators, or boats or sidewalks or spiders or a million other things. Is it really likely you will be hurt by any of those? No.
But think about your desires; drink, sex, gambling, money, fame…Man, those things can kill you!
quote by John Churton Collins, 1848-1908, English Literary Critic
