I'm BACK! .....again. Things got hectic, and the writers block hit once more, but I'll have some writing up very soon. I'll also be catching up on my reading around the site, take care all. :)
I'm not much for long profiles, but here's a basics. I'm a twenty six year old English major and aspiring writer living in New York City. Let me know what you think of my work and I will gladly return the favor.
And now for some favorite quotes!
"I count him braver who overcomes his desires then him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is the victory over oneself." - Aristotle
"When you heard that a mountain was moved, believe it; but when you hear that someone changed his character do not believe it." Arabian Proverb
"A fool may be known by six things: anger, without cause; speech, without profit; change, without progress; inquiry, without object; putting trust in a stranger, and mistaking foes." Arabian Proverb
"There was never a genius without a tincture of insanity." - Aristotle
"Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does NOT mean to stand by the President or any other public official save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country." -Theodore Roosevelt
"...if you are slain in battle, you should be resolved to have your corpse facing the enemy." Yamamoto Tsunetomo
