Fear is the mind killer...
It obliterates everything.

Why do you have to limit the choice to two emotions only?

It could be joy or sadness... Hope or desperation. Self awareness or oblivion. Realization of one's power or one's own helplessness.
There are different aspects of human condition.
Fear AND laziness are only a fraction.

I must face my fear
Fear is the mind killer...

I am lazy because...
it's too fearful to think about working.
Laziness and soft couch before the TV set forever

I got the quote "Fear is the mind killer" from Dune by Frank Herbert.
To compare fear with laziness... it's hard to do that for me cause for me they fall into different categories. Laziness as lack of motivation is something "harmless" you know, whereas fear, or someone driven by fear can act in a way one never expected to act. Driven by fear one can do the incredible, the impossible, both good and bad. I know this doesn't sound like a complete respond, but to me those two things are very different and it's hard to compare one with another.
