Words I live by, as spoken by one of the greatest philosophers of all time:
"grant me revenge, and, if you do not listen, the hell with you;"
"crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of their women;"
"if it bleeds, we can kill it;"
"get your ass to mars;"
"bring your toy back to the carpet;"
"you should not drink and bake."
Name one conflict in all of life that one of these mantras fails to provide the solution.
Much like the economy, my real rate of personal growth is either negative or entirely contrived.
