It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.
Not every life can be a success, just like not every vessel can be seaworthy. But there’s no shame in being one spectacular shipwreck. (Actually, there is. But we’re not going to kick you while you’re down, Edmund Fitzgerald.)
Never attribute to stupidity that which can be adequately explained by a pathological bloodlust for control.
The road to hell is paved with good intentions, and now they’re bringing it right to my driveway and taxing me for it.
