Student K: Docho Roshi, what should I do about the fear that causes small mind or limited mind?

SR: Fear looks like something which will cover your entire being, but if you wait, and if you watch it -- watch the fear, watch yourself, that will not be fear anymore. Whatever it is, it is necessary to break it as your motor [motive?]. It is necessary to drive your fear.
Student K: Thank you very much.
SR: Attack your enemy by his horse [laughs]. You understand? All right.  -------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-04-23-B as found on Edited by DC
