The Bene Gesserit "Litany Against Fear" from "Dune"

From Frank Herbert's Dune, the Bene Gesserit "Litany Against Fear" - 

"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."
This sounds rather Stoic to me. Worth remembering.
