"You need to face what you feel and walk through your tunnels and come out of your dark spaces into some light. Everybody needs to do that. Some people have got a short tunnel. Some of us have medium-sized tunnels. Some people's tunnels are so long and scary that they really feel if they enter them they'll never come out so they choose whatever the semidarkness is that they live in, rather than risk the possibility that there is never a light."
