“I wish to continue pleading with you, but I’ve lost my vim. I wish to beat you to death, but I’m rather fond of you. I wish to blow my brains out, but I want to know what happens next. I wish to question the prisoner myself, but I’m afraid of what he’ll say. I wish to march out onto the battlefield, but I don’t want to be crushed beneath a stranger’s boot. I wish to make a stand, but I think I should think about it some more.” Jed McKenna, Play

“Be it life or death, we crave only reality. If we are really dying, let us hear the rattle in our throats and feel cold in the extremities; if we are alive, let us go about our business.”
Henry David Thoreau
