Quote Number 4

I am giving a longer one today, both melancholy and strong.
Cowards die many times before their deaths;
The valiant never taste of death but once.

Of all the wonders that I yet have heard
It seems to me most strange that men should fear;
Seeing that death, a necessary end,

Will come when it will come.

Julius Caesar, Act 2 Scene 2
So what are we looking at here? A speech by Caesar. He's saying he's not worried about death, nor should anyone be. I love the first line because it is such a universal feeling. Every time i have to get blood taken i freak out, shrinking my veins and making it more difficult for the nurse to find them. If i know in advance of the appointment that I'll have blood drawn i worry and worry over it. How bad is it really?

not very.

So why do i worry about it? who knows. for the same reason my friend literally cannot speak in front of a crowd whereas i can do it, i just am not very good. for the same reason some people have anxiety attacks. I'm a coward when it comes to needles so i play it over and over in my head, making it worse.

so don't be like me!
