The perpetrator is not the victim.
I'm really glad that I got away with my stupid things.
I refuse to be unmerciful to those who did not.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
-Jim Eliott, paraphrasing Philip Henry.
