I know someone who's so afraid of the things she doesn't know much about. She's so afraid that she masks her fear with arrogance. So what happens is she constantly builds these walls higher and higher and higher, closing herself in. She does not have a ladder and so she could not climb up and out. So what she does is, she stays in and wills the walls to go up higher and higher. This is how proud she has become, that instead of admitting to her fear, she goes on believing that this--life inside the walls--is bravery.
