You’re an idealist, and I pity you as I would the village idiot.
— Stanley Kubrick
They tell me “What’s done in the dark
Will find a way to shine”
I done did so much that when you see you might go blind
Heal my soul
Fulfill my high
Cross my heart
And hope to die
With my slice of Devil’s pie
Destiny is not a matter of change, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
— William Jennings Bryan (1860-1925)
