Ed Brubaker

“Whatever you do, remember that. You're going to make a difference. A lot of times it won't be huge, it won't be visible even. But it will matter just the same. Don't do it for praise or money, that's what I want to tell you. Do it because it needs to be done. Do it to make your world better.”
Ed Brubaker, Gotham Central, Book One: In the Line of Duty

“I loved you, you know... It's not my fault the world is what it is.”
Ed Brubaker, Fatale, Vol. 1: Death Chases Me
