Well, Spike, our species has been on this path ever since we first  
snatched a burning brand out of the fire. We shouldn't balk now. I  
hope the words of those who have gone before brings you some peace:

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist  
in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.  
Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure.”

― Helen Keller

"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


"Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds
Have no fear for atomic energy
'Cause none of them can stop the time
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look?
Some say it's just a part of it
We've got to fulfill de book"

-- Bob Marley
