"Sh*t happens"

"Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail, and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. Some, are given a chance to climb, and they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions. Only the ladder is real. The climb, is all there is."

The wheel turn sometimes fast sometime slow.

Whatever bad things you do to people today will come back to one day when you are down.

To get more money than you need thus want to be rich you need to sacrifice give up something of you. That usually start with your respect.

Time for a little Samuel L.
(No, not Jackson!)

"Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society."

"When I was younger, I could remember anything, whether it had happened or not."

"Put all the eggs in one basket and - WATCH THAT BASKET."

"Get your facts first, then you can distort 'em as much as you please."

"Wrinkles should merely indicate where a smile has been."

"If you tell the truth you don't have to remember anything."

"Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand."

Just a few of my favorites.

"Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you."

- Friedrich Nietzsche
