I was afraid, but this fear made me discover something I’ve never forgotten since: fear, you see, is an emotion people like to feel when they know they’re safe. When a person is sitting quietly at home reading a tale of terror, one still feels secure. Naturally you shiver, but since you’re in a familiar surroundings and you know it’s only your imagination that responds to the reading, you then feel a great relief and happiness—like someone who has a cold drink after being very thirsty. And then you appreciate the gentle lamp and the comfortable armchair you’re sitting in.
