“The key isn't winning -- or losing, it's making the attempt. I may never be what I ought to be, want to be -- but how will I know unless I try?

Sure, it's scary, but what's the alternative? Stagnation - A safer, more terrible form of death. Not of the body, but of the spirit.

An animal knows what it is, and accepts it. A man may know what he is -- but he questions. He dreams. He strives. Changes. Grows.”
Chris Claremont, Wolverine

“Life is the ultimate adventure, and Death, the prize that awaits us all.”
Chris Claremont, Wolverine

“I can still see her face -- The sorrow in her eyes, her voice, as she condemns me. I didn't know it was possible to feel such shame. To feel so sick at heart.

I'm lost inside, my soul -- all that I thought I was, and am, and ever will be -- shattered, cast to the winds.

Compared to this, death is a mercy.”
Chris Claremont, Wolverine
