“Writing is wretched, discouraging, physically unhealthy, infinitely frustrating work. And when it all comes together it’s utterly glorious."

National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) Pep Talk
Ralph Peters

“A soldier’s duty…” Taylor intoned the last word in a voice of granite, “is to do an honest day’s work in dishonest times… and to make the best out of the worst fucking mess imaginable. It means… believing in your heart that some things are more important than your personal devils… or even your personal beliefs. It means the willingness to give up… everything.” Taylor sat back in his chair, never breaking eye contact. “And sometimes it just means lacing up your boots one more time when the whole world’s going to shit.”
Ralph Peters, The War in 2020

“Human beings may hate a distant enemy in theory, but they generally prefer to kill their neighbors.”
