    Will probably sound silly to most but for me its always been - "we make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones" - Stephen King.

    I've always been a huge horror fan both in books and films and horrors were weirdly the first thing I would go to if I was feeling down. When I was housebound from my health a few years ago, all I did was pretty much stay in and read and watch horrors and play horror themed games and they really helped me. For someone who has several anxiety disorders in real life you would think something that intentionally scares you, I would avoid but nope, I always felt like it was an outlet and burned off a lot of my buried beneath anxiety and it made me feel lighter because then I only had on the surface anxiety left. I love a good paranormal horror, not really into slasher horrors

    My favourite is from Newton
    "What we know is a drop, what we don't is an ocean"
    Heard this in a lecture about the Higgs Boson at Oxford Uni 2 years ago. Really inspired me to delve into the world of research.
