“Only Thing We Have to Fear Is Fear Itself”

Franklin D. Roosevelt used that line in his first inaugural address in 1933, Francis bacon said it first 400 years before, he said,”Nothing is terrible except fear itself” which according to those in the know Roosevelt would have probably learned that quote at school.
This illustration( still in progress) pays homage to that sentiment that the “fear” is more potent than what is feared. In 1933 Roosevelt and the American people had frankly a bucket load of problems on an truly gigantic scale, enough to consume any man with incapacitating fear. lay that “fear” to waste and you can get on with solving your problems.
