“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.”
-Albus Dumbledore

"I'm just a little bit caught in the middle,
Life is a maze, and love is a ridde."
-Lenka


They say
Play with dignity,
Equity,
Integrity.

I say
Play aggressively,
Fearlessly,
Successfully.

They say it's just a game.
I say play to win.
'Cause winning isn't sinning
If you deserve it in the end.

I'm the last one standing
When the competition's done.
When the trophy's in my hands
Is when I have my fun.

So I refuse
To lose.
I won't feel that shame.
Winning isn't sinning;
And it isn't just a game.

"Many that live deserve death and some that have died deserve life, can you give that to them? Do not be to hasty to deal out death and judgement, even the very wise cannot see all ends."


"Can't get no more free randy!"

"Winning isn't sinning, and it isn't just a game." What a wonderful line. Great job. It's very true, and I think that the mindset that you described is the one that you need to have in order to be succesful.
