    "Tout le monde sait comment on fait les bébés

    Rough translation: Everyone knows how to make babies. But no one says/knows how to be a father (at least this is what I understand from it)

    It takes a long time before I get to the bottom of why I'm so upset.
    When I do, it's almost too mortifying to admit.
    All those months of taking it for granted that he thought I was wonderful are over.
    Finally, he can see me for who I really am.
    Violent.
    Distrustful.
    Manipulative.
    Deadly.

    ...And I hate him for it.

    "The port was alive with strange faces. It was dawn by the time he found an old salt willing to part with a vessel for what bullion he had left… a cutter with a Bermuda rig called 'The Merciful', it's sails ragged and ripped, it’s compass cracked, it's rotten hull just barely able to cut the breakers. But it would be enough to make his escape. It wasn't for another hour when he was a mile from the docks that his thoughts turned back to her. He imagined her alone.

    By now, she would’ve searched the house and found it empty. She had suspected it all along, and now she knew he was a coward. A coward dressed in the uniform of a brave man. Brave enough to cross two oceans and a continent to find her, to fight countless enemies, and yet in the end, he was terrified. He was terrified of her… to lie beside her, to be comforted by her as he wept, to show her he was small, for her to know that and touch his cheek and whisper words softly into his ear. All of that was a nightmare.

    All he knew to do was run. He took a deep breath of the air, tasting the salt on his tongue, and closed his eyes, leaning into the spray as The Merciful picked up speed and sailed for the horizon.

    He was alone, and all was well."

    Here are my favorite quotes:


    Maximilien Robespierre

    "Crime butchers innocence to secure a throne, and innocence struggles with all its might against the attempts of crime."

    "Any law which violates the inalienable rights of man is essentially unjust and tyrannical; it is not a law at all."

    "To punish the oppressors of humanity is clemency; to forgive them is cruelty."

    "The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping them ignorant."


    Niccolo Machiavelli

    "It is double pleasure to deceive the deceiver."


    Napoleon Bonaparte

    "Ten people who speak make more noise than ten thousand who are silent."

    "Ability is nothing without opportunity."

    "You must not fight too often with one enemy, or you will teach him all your art of war."


    Roy H. Williams

    "A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again. But a wise man finds a smart man and learns from him how to avoid the mistake altogether."


    Nemispelled

    "There is one mistake that a person of authority should never make: Assume that a subordinate is naturally under their control, when in fact, it is a superior individual in disguise."
