I like deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.
When I argue with reality, I lose -
but only 100 percent of the time
“Wisely, and slow. They stumble that run fast.”
Although personally I am quite content with existing explosives, I feel we must not stand in the path of improvement.
Watch your thoughts, they become words.
Watch your words, they become actions.
Watch your actions, they become habits.
Watch your habits, they become character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.
