Tracy Morgan on Fear

The immortal Tracy Morgan has the following to say about living the courageous life in the March issue of Esquire:

Don’t you think I’m scared? Every day, motherfucker. But I got to do my job. You got to be scared. ‘Cause if you ain’t scared, you got no need for guts… It take guts just to come ou your door — you don’t know what the fuck gonna happen out there, man… but you gotta go. Control that shit… If you hate your job, motherfucker, just quit. You hate your spouse? Leave. Leave. Stop being scared.

Thinking About Fear & the Brain

If I find myself in a severe crisis, will I be able to keep it together? How can I control anxiety and panic? Is it possible to lead a life less bounded by fear? These are the sorts of questions that I'll be exploring in this blog, an offshoot of my book, Extreme Fear: The Science of Your Mind in Danger, published on December 8, 2009 by Palgrave Macmillan.
