"His hate died quickly"

Quote Describing My Mood

"His hate died quickly. His hurt lasted much longer, but a day came when he could forgive her.

Much later, he knew she had done nothing that needed his forgiveness."

"These are the Glengarry leads..."

Quote Describing My Mood

"These are the new leads. These are the Glengarry leads. And to you, they're gold, and you don't get them. Why? Because giving them to you would be throwing them away. They're for closers. And I'd wish you good luck, but you wouldn't know what to do with it."

-Glengarry Glen Ross, David Mamet

I don't dare flunk out!

Quote Describing My Mood
"Birdie, what is your permanent rank?"

The car was landing; he paused with a hand on the latch and grinned. "PFC...I don't dare flunk out!"

I snorted. "You won't. You can't!" I was surprised that he wasn't even a corporal, but a kid as smart and as well educated as Birdie would go to OCS just as quickly as he proved himself in combat...

He opened the door and looked startled. "Hey! They're sounding my call. So long!"

"See you, Birdie!"

But I did not see him, and he did not graduate. He was commissioned two weeks later and his pips came back with their eighteenth decoration: the Wounded Lion, posthumous.

"Nothing ever ends"

Quote Describing My Mood

Veidt: I keep having this dream, that I'm swimming towards a giant black- no, nevermind. Did I do the right thing, Jon? Did I do the right thing at the end?

Dr. Manhattan: Nothing ever ends, Veidt.

"I don't like warriors"

Quote Describing My Mood

"I don't like warriors. Too narrow-minded, no subtlety. And worse, they fight for hopeless causes. Honor? Huh! Honor's killed millions of people, it hasn't saved a single one."

-The Fifth Element
