“There comes a time when you look into the mirror and you realize that what you see is all that you will ever be. And then you accept it. Or you kill yourself. Or you stop looking in mirrors.”
J. Michael Straczynski, Babylon 5: The Scripts of J. Michael Straczynski, Vol. 2

“Doesn't matter what the press says. Doesn't matter what the politicians or the mobs say. Doesn't matter if the whole country decides that something wrong is something right.

This nation was founded on one principle above all else: The requirement that we stand up for what we believe, no matter the odds or the consequences. When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole world -- "No, YOU move.”
J. Michael Straczynski, The Amazing Spider-Man: Civil War

“Understanding is a three edged sword: your side, their side, and the truth.”
J. Michael Straczynski
