A WAY OF HOPE | 1987 | Walesa, Lech

"Fear takes may forms: there's fear in the face of suffering, fear of not having enough time, fear of not being able to explain oneself, fear of not doing well enough, fear of death"

KEYWORDS: advice; greedy; priest; to
"How is one to cope?

"I once knew a priest who was putting money to one side so that he would be able to afford a nurse when he was no longer able to care for himself.

"You saved your millions for nothing, I told him.

"If you're struck down by some terrible disease, no one will come to care for you despite your money.

"But if you've been kind and generous when you were in good health, many will help you for nothing."

All this is from page 310.

Yo, onedoug!

Hey, think about what Lech is saying: fear makes us do all kinds of crazy things.

Lech had it big time, many times.
