  • Eyes Open
    Eyes Open

    I must not fear.
    Fear is the mind-killer.
    Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
    I will face my fear.
    I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
    And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
    Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
    Only I will remain.
    - The Bene Gesserit

    I know you're out there. I can feel you now. I know that you're afraid. You're afraid of us. You're afraid of change. I don't know the future. I didn't come here to tell you how this is going to end. I came here to tell you how it's going to begin. I'm going to hang up this phone, and then I'm going to show these people what you don't want them to see. I'm going to show them a world without you, a world without rules and controls, without borders or boundaries, a world where anything is possible. Where we go from there, is a choice I leave to you.
    - Neo

    Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.

    You cannot save people, you can only love them.

    Anais Nin

    They're the teachers who taught me to fight me

    The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and
    pass, leaving memories that become legend.
    Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long
    forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes
    - The late Robert Jordan
