Our Fear of the Unknown

 

Some of the wisest words come from fictional characters, often from characters who believe themselves to be unwise.

Today I'm hearing the truth of 13-year-old Tree-ear's words in A Single Shard. I just finished reading this book for the first time, but it definitely won't be the last.

"We are afraid of the things we do not knowjust because we do not know them, Tree-ear thought, pleased with himself."
