Replace old memories with new ones.


When faced with a challenge some choose to run away.
Others choose to fight.
Yet the wise choose to simply stand where they are.
Passive and patient souls are the wisest of mankind.
Though most choose to be irrational, there are still few that decide to remain docile.
Creator or created, there is little difference, we all are arrogant.
For no being is all knowing, the future cannot be predicted.
There is none superior, there is only ignorance.
When wise men choose death over life, judge them not, for they have chosen their fate.
You cannot choose your fate, it chooses you.
And though you may try to defer its choices, your efforts are pointless.
Despair not, for though you have no control, life won't always lead you to a dead end.
There are no permanent scars upon your heart, neither time nor experience can wear them away.
Only sheer will can erase these pain-inducing marks.
Yet if you find yourself deprived of will, choose not to fight if all you possess is cowardice.
For cowardice leads to deception.
Cowardice merely portrays that we are human, it portrays that we have fear.
Only the arrogant deny they possess fear.
For the arrogant are not human.
