“Marriage is a duel to the death which no man of honour should decline.”
- G. K. Chesterton
Everyone has a fear. Everyone is scared of something.
But it’s not until you face that fear head on, that you realize your power and that’s when you grow. And that’s what we all want, we wanna grow, we wann feel good about ourselves, we wanna feel proud of who we are.

I have you in my fortress,
And will not let you depart,
But put you down into my dungeon,
In the round-tower of my heart
And there I will keep you forever,
Yes, forever and a day,
Till the walls shall crumble to ruin,
And moulded in the dust away.”
Critics who treat ‘adult’ as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.
“People,“ Geralt turned his head, "like to invent monsters and monstrosities. Then they seem less monstrous themselves. When they get blind-drunk, cheat, steal, beat their wives, starve an old woman, when they kill a trapped fox with an axe or riddle the last existing unicorn with arrows, they like to think that the Bane entering cottages at daybreak is more monstrous than they are. They feel better then. They find it easier to live.”
— Andrzej Sapkowski, The Last Wish
Do not tenderize on me. Do like me. Do what you have to do. But if you are a human being, do it fast. Here is all i ask you. I won’t have courage eternally, that’s true.
Jean Anouilh, Antigone
“…The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value.”
Thomas Paine, The American Crisis

“Love is quite mad, because see, it’s letting things get out of control. All sensible people keep things in control. The moment you do anything is an act of faith. But love is the most powerful thing that can be done: surrender. See, love is an act of surrender to another person. Take me, do whatever you like. I give myself to you. And that’s quite mad. So the course of wisdom, in a sense, is quite mad. So we come to the strange conclusion that in madness lies sanity.”
