And if this is humanity's last war, then I am the battlefield.”
Rick Yancey, The 5th Wave

Robert Greene
“Never assume that the person you are dealing with is weaker or less important than you are. Some people are slow to take offense, which may make you misjudge the thickness of their skin, and fail to worry about insulting them. But should you offend their honor and their pride, they will overwhelm you with a violence that seems sudden and extreme given their slowness to anger. If you want to turn people down, it is best to do so politely and respectfully, even if you feel their request is impudent or their offer ridiculous.”
Robert Greene, The 48 Laws of Power

He is down below helping his followers to understand that the view is glorious where ever you stand.”
Shannon L. Alder

with home.”
