To wear your heart on your sleeve isn't a very good plan; you should wear it inside, where it functions best.

Re: Imperial Wisdom

Do not confuse "duty" with what other people expect of you; they are utterly different. Duty is a debt you owe to yourself to fulfill obligations you have assumed voluntarily. Paying that debt can entail anything from years of patient work to instant willingness to die. Difficult it may be, but the reward is self-respect.

Re: Imperial Wisdom

"Once you believe in the idea of 'the final answer' to human ills… If it is the final answer then no sacrifice is too great for it, even if you have to kill people for it.. this is the one end… permanent bliss of mankind.. surely, worth it. If you believe in a single answer to a single question, the true answer all other answers being false, then there is a temptation, if you think you have it, to do awful things."

Well, if crime fighters fight crime and fire fighters fight fire, what do freedom fighters fight? They never mention that part to us, do they?
