“Darkness is merely the absence of light, and fear is merely the absence of love. We can’t get rid of darkness by hitting it with a baseball bat, because there is nothing to hit.

If we want to be rid of darkness, we must turn on a light.

Similarly, if we want to be rid of fear, we cannot fight it but must replace it with love.”
