This is classic: Probably it does not matter, but "terror" is an unsatisfactory adversary since it is a mental condition rather than a tangible foe. You cannot fight against "terror" since you cannot shoot it or sink it in the sea. In addition, terror is an undignified emotion. Young men should be conditioned to rise above fear at the earliest possible age, and to the extent that this happens, they cannot be terrorized. Nobody likes to look right into the cannon's mouth, but he need not squeal about it. George Patton had some very good things to say on this subject. Nobody is immune from fear, but nobody should let fear affect his conduct.
