Words from Mary Baker Eddy
Fear is the weapon in the hands of tyrants. (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 99)
We should master fear, instead of cultivating it. (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 197)
Passions, selfishness, false appetites, hatred, fear, all sensuality, yield to spirituality, and the superabundance of being is on the side of God, good. (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 201)
Persecution is the weakness of tyrants engendered by their fear, and love will cast it out. Continue steadfast in love and good works. Children of light, you are not children of darkness. Let your light shine. Keep in mind the foundations of Christian Science — one God and one Christ. (The First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany, p. 191)
