If you chase two rabbits, you will lose them both.

Do not go gentle into that good night but rage, rage against the dying of the light.
- Dylan Thomas

What is past is past -- it is the present and the future that concern us.
- Hiawatha, founder of the Iroquois Confederacy


I can fight fire with fire

But I’d rather use water

To douse my own flame

Before I cause you pain

I can fight your words with mine

I can cross the line

But I’d rather keep silent

So you won’t hurt

I can heal your wounds with mine

You’re already divine

I’ll do what it takes

So you’ll be fine

I can fight your battles and mine

But I’ll never win

What does it matter?

We’re both dead in the end
