A story has no beginning or end; arbitrarily one chooses that moment of experience from which to look back or from which to look ahead.
The End of the Affair, Graham Greene
The great revolution in the history of man, past, present and future, is the revolution of those determined to be free.
John F. Kennedy
…This nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
The Gettysburg Address, Abraham Lincoln (Bliss Copy)

(By the power of truth, I, while living, have conquered the universe.)
I’m not a coward, I’ve just never been tested.
I’d like to think that if I was I would pass.

I’ll blow my brains in your lap
lay here and die in your arms
“Space Bound”, Eminem
I raise my eyes to see the heavens
And only the moon looks down
The harvest moon shines down!
Thenardier, Les Miserables
I see a beautiful city and a brilliant people rising from this abyss. I see the lives for which I laid down my life peaceful, useful, prosperous, and happy. I see that I hold a sanctuary in their hearts, and in the hearts of their descendants generations hence. It is a far far better thing that I do than I have ever done. It is a far far better rest that I go to, than I have ever known.
Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
We leave as we came and, God willing, as we shall return: with peace and hope for all mankind.
Gene Cernan. These were the last words said by humans on the moon.
