I am afraid of the implications of this quote.
We should trample what we fear? That doesn't ring true for me. I agree you souldn't run from your fears, but there are other options. You can understand what you fear, to the point where you understand where your fear comes from and whether it's rational or not. You can live with your fear, and prepare for the case where it materialize.

I mean, should I humiliate and attack people I'm afraid of? Should I belittle any idea that frightens me?
