“Sharks don't kill because they're poor, criminal, insane, or repressed. A shark kills because it's a shark.”

“There is no force as powerful as a promise that insists on being kept.”
Barry B. Longyear, Enemy Mine

“Fairness is an illusion. Neither effort nor intention holds title to the nature or form of either the present or the future. And if the sincere effort has no title, what interest can the bellow or the lamentation hold?" - Davigde. "The humans on Amadeen have a different way of saying it... Tough shit." - Yazi Ro”
