Stephen King
“And that almost killed you?"
"It wasn't deep but it got infected. Infection means that the bad germs got into it. Infection's the most dangerous thing there is, Tom. Infection was what made the superflu germ kill all the people. And infection is what made people want to make the germ in the first place. An infection of the mind.”
Stephen King

J.C. Marino
“In every journey comes a moment... one like no other. And in that moment, you must decide between who you are... and who you want to be.”
J.C. Marino, Dante's Journey
