Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential. - Barack Obama

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”― Marcus AureliusMeditations

“Juju is not enough to protect you. Everything you have I will turn against you. I'll turn sugar bitter for you. I'll take your very shield and crack it on your head.” - Helen Oyeyemi, White is for Witching

Dislike a lot the idea of bad thought being thought about anyone, especially me, as they seem to badly backfire on the person thinking them. So don't you suffer a total mental breakdown when thinking bad thoughts about the Alani DragonSmile
