If you can give yourself to someone,
Then you should.
“You’re a man who knows what he wants, and you’ve found it. Not many can say that.” […]Lucifer’s Hammer, by Jerry Pournelle and Larry Niven
“What can I do for an encore?”
“Yes, exactly. What do you do when you’ve walked on the moon, and then they cancel the space program?”
[W]hen faced with a problem you do not understand, do any part of it you do understand, then look at it again.The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Robert A. Heinlein
He had been that young once, that sure of himself and his ability to remake the world in the shape he chose. And it had been true, within bounds. It seemed like something that had happened to someone else, except when it seemed like it had all happened a week before.The Tyrant’s Law, by Daniel Abraham
“I remember the man you used to be,” I said. “What happened to that guy? He was something else.”From Circle of Enemies by Harry Connolly

This made me feel a little better about a purchase I was debating 🙂
But I’ve always thought — tests are a gift. And great tests are a great gift. To fail the test is a misfortune. But to refuse the test is to refuse the gift, and something worse, more irrevocable, than misfortune.“Shards of Honor” (Vokosigan Saga), by Lois McMaster Bujold
There was an old joke. Miller didn’t remember where he’d heard it. Girl’s at her own father’s funeral, meets this really cute guy. They talk, hit it off, but he leaves before she can get his number. Girl doesn’t know how to track the guy down.
So a week later, she kills her mom.
It was the logic of [certain mass murderers]. “Here is the problem,” they said to themselves, “and there is the solution.” That it was drowned in innocent blood was as trivial as the font the reports were printed in.“Leviathan Wakes” by James S. A. Corey

While in Florida, Obama is trying to refocus the debate on Medicare, a topic that resonates with Florida’s large senior population. He said: “No American should have to spend their golden years at the mercy of insurance companies.” Grammar nerds may wince at his use of “their” (it should be “his or her” given the singular subject) but if he can convince enough people that the Paul Ryan’s plan to turn Medicare into a voucher program is a bad idea, it could be enough to swing Florida. Without Florida, Romney has no chance of winning the election.From Electoral-vote.com
Obama supports the use of the singular they! I may have to vote for him after all.
