There’s things that happen in a person’s life that are so scorched in the memory and burned into the heart that there’s no forgetting them.
—John Boyne in Mutiny on the Bounty
Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.
Not being able to govern events, I govern myself.
—Michel de Montaigne
It doesn't matter what happens as long as the right person gets the blame.
