When you get shot in a drive by at 7 am on a corner, you really have no one to blame but yourself. That doesn’t make it hurt any less losing you. R.I.P.
I have been waiting for this movie since I was 13
How militaristic will the environment be? Will we be seeing the children treated like the soldiers they are meant to portray? For all intents and purposes they are in boot camp for most of their adolescence. Will we see the characters being broken down?
“I walked up to an old, old monk and asked him, ‘What is the audacity of humility?’ This man has never met me before, but do you know what his answer was? ‘To be the first to say “I love you.”’”

in 2008 we found out America wasn’t a conservative majority. In the 2012 primary the tea party found out they are a very vocal minority in the republican party. By 2013 we will know if America responds to lip service or results. Take it as you will.

“One of the things about powerful people is they have the ability to make it look easy. You could be on a guy’s yacht and having a great time and he’s partying, but then he goes down into the hull and he’s on a serious f — king phone call dealing with his whole life.

What is the definition of success, because it’s not luck. Lottery winners are considered lucky. Is luck chance? Because If luck is chance and defined by odds of winning a lotto. Than no one truly has a chance. You are more likely to be struck by lighting and die from a snake bite the same day then win the lotto. So fuck luck, success is judged by your ability to set progressive goals and meet them through hard work and opportunity. I am done with wishing for better or hoping for more. I need to meet success because I’ve never been lucky and I’ve wasted plenty of time.
