“You made your own bed, and now curse others for putting you there.”
Wesley Chu, The Lives of Tao

“Besides, criminal masterminds are people too. They need groceries and cable like the rest of us.”
Wesley Chu, The Lives of Tao

“Look to your right... It is the path back home. If you choose, you can take it. It is safe, easy, and comfortable. You do not have to work out or fight or do anything else you do not want to...

Or you can keep moving forward. I will not lie to you. I cannot predict what may become of you. It will require a lot of training, hard work, study, and danger. But in the very end, you will know strength. I swear it. You might just become someone who will make a difference in the world.”
Wesley Chu, The Lives of Tao
