Every paradox and every contradiction in life are the thoughts of Matthias, he likes to take his time with things, but with other things he'll be fast and decisive. Ever the unsettled spirit, he usually can't decide how to spend his day most of the time.
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. - Frank Herbert, Dune
