Given the current situation with the Supreme Court leak, perhaps.

(LOL - see what I did there?)

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.

Your starting word and my starting word differed by only one letter.
