    Right it is simple, just write down some quotes that inspire you

    "It is foolish and wrong to mourn those who have died. Rather we should thank god that such people lived" Gen George S Patterson Jr

    It is not work that kills men, it is worry. Work is healthy; you can hardly put more on a man than he can bear. But worry is rust upon the blade. It is not movement that destroys the machinery, but friction.

    Henry Ward Beecher

    I think you mean George S. Patton, Jr.?

    Since the only way I can force myself to do anything these days is via pain, I've taken this one to heart...

    We stand for organized terror - this should be frankly admitted. Terror is an absolute necessity during times of revolution.
    Felix Dzerzhinsky, (1877-1926)

    ...with the idea that my conscious mind is the bolshevik elite and the rest of what passes as my consciousness is an unwieldy, uncooperative mass of peasants, kulaks and lumpenproletariat. A mass that needs to be terrified into shape, since it is immune to reason. Seems to be working so far, but we shall see how it goes long-term.

    I'm at work on an absolutely unreadable essay which uses the above as its epigraph. :cool:

    “You know, you don't have to look like everybody else to be acceptable and to feel acceptable.”

    "It's not the honors and the prizes and the fancy outsides of life which ultimately nourish our souls. It's the knowing that we can be trusted, that we never have to fear the truth, that the bedrock of our very being is good"
