“Tomorrow is a dream away.”
Scott Synder, DC Comics: The New 52

“He's a frustrating guy. Trust me, I know. He thinks he knows exactly what he wants and what he doesn't, and he thinks he's right all of the time. But at the end of the day, he's always right about people. When he lets someone in, that means something. When he put you in charge, it was so in this exact situation you would be calling the shots.

“This is what you need to understand. No one is coming for us.”
James Tynion IV, The Woods #1
