I enjoy your FIve Quotes series. Even when I am familiar with the person there are usually some quotes that are new to me, and others remain inspiring every time I read them.

"Knowing what must be done does away with fear" reminds me of the value of preparedness and, also, of principles - even if you are uncertain (and fearful) of what will happen in the world around you, knowing yourself and what you value will help you make decisions.
