Yoda and C.S. Lewis on fear

"Fear is the path to the dark side.  Fear leads to anger.  Anger leads to hate.  Hate leads to suffering." - Yoda.
And:
"[H]atred is best combined with Fear.  Cowardice alone of all the vices, is purely painful - horrible to anticipate, horrible to feel, horrible to remember; Hatred has its pleasures.  It is therefore often the compensation by which a frightened man reimburses himself for the miseries of Fear.  The more he fears, the more he will hate." C.S. Lewis in The Screwtape Letters (emphasis in original).
