It may just be the characters name, words to describe emotions, words to describe action, and some notes.

“Wisdom flows from the springs of knowledge and experience.”
Pyram King, Destiny's War

“Truth may walk through the world unarmed.”
Pyram King, Destiny's War

“Wisdom flows from the springs of knowledge and experience.”
Pyram King, Destiny's War

“Truth may walk through the world unarmed.”
Pyram King, Destiny's War

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On!' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
Calvin Coolidge

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

“If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.”
Mark Twain
