First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.

Never forget what a man says to you when he is angry.
   -Henry Ward Beecher

The firmest friendships have been formed in mutual adversity, as iron is most strongly united by the fiercest flame.

Once I, Chuang Tzu, dreamt I was a butterfly and was happy as a butterfly. I was conscious that I was quite pleased with myself, but I did not know that I was Tzu. Suddenly I awoke, and there was I, visibly Tzu. I do not know whether it was Tzu dreaming that he was a butterfly or the butterfly dreaming that he was Tzu. Between Tzu and the butterfly there must be some distinction. [But one may be the other.] This is called the transformation of things.

Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.
   -J.R.R. Tolkien (Gimli)

He should not vow to walk in the dark, who has not seen the nightfall.
   -J.R.R. Tolkien (Elrond in response to Gimli)

There comes a time when a man must act, knowing the dangers that he may die. There comes a time when a man must fight, knowing he may lose.
   -Captain Harlock

Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp, Or what's a heaven for?
   -Robert Browning
