Many things frighten humans instinctively. Why would we need a defense against the dark...? That goes back to the fear of not knowing what\'s lurking in the shadows. I am not afraid of the dark. I am afraid of people that are afraid of the dark, they take that fear to the new level...!

There will be always some dark patches in our life ..........In the central place of every heart ,there is a recording chamber. So long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage, so long are they lighted . When their heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then, and then only, they are grown old and become dark . And then, indeed as the ballad says, they just fade away.

The nearer the dawn the darker the night............However long the night, the dawn will break


Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.....and most importantly ,
A candle loses nothing if it is used to light another one

If we cannot see anything,,, mind cannot tell us what to do.. because there is nothing in front of us,, this causes fear as we could hurt ourselves as we do not know what is going to happen.. thats why we have fear from darkness... it is just like the exam day,, when we do not know which Qs would come,, as we may or may not know the ans,, and we might fail.. so we panic,, we have exam fear,... just unkown brings fear to mind :)
