For even peace itself will supply more reason to worry. Not even safe circumstances will bring you confidence once your mind has been shocked — once it get in the habit of blind panic, it can't provide for its own safety. For it doesn't really avoid danger, it just runs away. Yet we are exposed to greater danger with our backs turned. — Seneca, Moral Letters, 104.10b (resource) Ryan Holiday, The 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living
