“Is freedom worth the price of not having a conscience? Not having sympathy? Einsa wondered. Klinde did not respond. Einsa shut her eyes. It is, he said at last. She let go of him.”
Victor Salinas, The Sword and Its Servant

“It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.”

Niccolò Machiavelli

“Life has no remote....get up and change it yourself!”
Mark A. Cooper, Operation Einstein
