“...you can't let something that'll probably never happen ruin your life. You're only helping to make it a self-fulfilling prophecy”
Raymond Khoury, The Last Templar

“...maybe we don't need a heavenly bribe or the fear of hell and damnation to make us behave decently. Maybe it would be healthier if people started believing in themselves instead.”
