I am not one of those weak-spirited, sappy Americans who want to be liked by all the people around them. I dont care if people hate my guts; I assume most of them do. The important question is whether they are in a position to do anything about it. My affections, being concentrated over a few people, are not spread all over Hell in a vile attempt to placate sulky, worthless shits. - William S Burroughs
I dunno man. I'm stuck behind the enemy lines in this damned commie country with no backup. I was able to help a family evade the commies for a year today, I guess that's a good thing.
I probably should've bailed in '06 when I had the chance, but I felt guilty about leaving some oldsters behind. I wanted to be a hero. No regrets. If my destiny was to change, it would've happened ~1979.
No goin' back now. I'm carrying way too much cargo.
The light that burns twice as bright, burns half as long. - Dr. Eldon Tyrell
Godfrey Smith: Mike, I wouldn't worry. Prosperity is just around the corner. Mike Flaherty: Yeah, it's been there a long time. I wish I knew which corner. My Man Godfrey (1936)
