Quote1 Every choice we're faced with, every decision we make, no matter how simple and black-and-white it may seem, ... take my word for it -- someone, somewhere out there, is always going to get the short end of the stick. And it's not the things we do, it's the things we don't do, that keep us awake at night. Quote2
John Constantine
