Quote1 We're not gods, we're men, who, for whatever reason, have been given extraordinary abilities. The question you need to ask yourself iswhat kind of hero you're gonna be. Are you just gonna take a do over every time you make a mistake, or are you gonna live with them and move forward? Quote2
Jay Garrick
