Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.
-- Mark Twain
You tell me where to go and
Though I might leave to find it
I'll never let your head hit the bed
Without my hand behind it
-- John Mayer, 'Your Body is a Wonderland'
"Okay, listen to me. There's something you need to know. When you first walked into my office with that stupid Bozo hair, I thought you were crazy. I thought you might actually be a crazy person. But I watched you, and I read your statement, and I've seen... I've seen how you think, I've seen how you work, I've seen how you are in this job. In this job, you see darkness. You see the worst in people and though the jobs are different and the missions change, and the enemies have a thousand names. The one crucial thing, the one real responsibility you have is to not let your rage, and your resentment, and your disgust, darken you. When you're at your absolute lowest, at your most depressed, just remember that you can always... you know. You got my number."
-- Agent Michael Vaughn, Alias (episode 1x04 - A Broken Heart)
