Never give in, never falter

Never yield or cry for quarter.

Two Were Dead Before They Could Move
He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despite, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.

- Aeschylus, Agamemnon

Be mindful of the prayers you send
Pray hard but pray with care
For the tears that you are crying now
Are just your answered prayers.

-Nick Cave

Maybe we're victims of fate
Remember when we'd celebrate
We'd drink and get high until late
And now we're all alone
Wedding bells ain't gonna chime
We're both of us guilty of crime
And both of sentenced to time
And now we're all alone
Protect me from what I want.
