Ernest Hemingway
“If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places.

If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.”

We are going to put it down ― the evolution of this world which has died but which has not been buried.”

“In the first age, in the first battle, when the shadows first lengthened, one stood. Burned by the embers of Armageddon, his soul blistered by the fires of Hell and tainted beyond ascension, he chose the path of perpetual torment.

He wore the crown of the Night Sentinels, and those that tasted the bite of his sword named him... the Doom Slayer. BFD Division starts playing”
