We must not be afraid of the assaults and stupidities of our common enemy, because he can do us no harm. With fear comes uneasiness, with uneasiness comes tiredness, and finally, weariness makes us give up our exercise of piety. Therefore, without becoming afraid, be happy to be like little chicks under the wings of the Divine. Let us fear no one but God, but let it be a loving fear. Let us keep our doors well barred and take care lest the walls of our good resolutions be battered down. Then let us live in peace, letting our enemy roar and prowl about [cf. 1 Pt 5:8] as wildly as he likes -- he cannot harm us. (Letters 405; O. XIII pp. 300-301) - Saint Francis de Sales
