“You would have to be either a sociopath or totally enlightened not to be feeling anxiety at a moment like this.

The paradox is that we’re also the most capable, resourceful and resilient species that has ever lived on earth. So history has shown that when change comes to humanity — either on the global level, like it’s happening now, or on the personal level — we’re really good at it. We’re really good at adaptation. And I think that if we can remember that, it can help to actually mitigate the fear.”
