I was in grade school when I read Alistair MacLean’s book, “Fear is the key”.
I loved the book and later I watched the movie with my father and enjoyed it too, but the title always intrigued me, what did it mean?
Is it fear that holds the secret of us being careful in life, or is it the reason we do certain things because we fear failure?
Fear for our safety is a pressure valve that makes us careful about not putting ourselves in danger but it is also the reason that we don’t step out of our comfort zone and take risks that can at times help us go ahead in life.
There are many quotes about fear, like we have nothing to fear but fear itself, fear is the mother of foresight, and have no fear of perfection, you’ll never achieve it!
My favorite interpretation of this quote is that the fear of God keeps us on the straight path.
