Star Trek Next Generation fans know that Lieutenant Worf is a Klingon, a race of fierce warriors. Wesley Crusher was a young ensign who aspires to be accepted into Star Fleet Academy. He is about to undergo the final test which is a psychological test that will have him encounter his worst subconscious fear. Worf inquires about Wesley’s obvious distress. The exchange that follows between them is an important lesson for Wesley and for all of us.

Wesley Crusher “I thought there was nothing a Klingon warrior could fear.”

Worf: “Only fools have nothing to fear.”

Courage is not the absence of fear, it is what is needed in the face of fear
