never stick out their neck for
something they believe, never
know the taste of moral struggle,
and never have the thrill of victory."

Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends, for it is one of God's best gifts. It involves many things, but above all, the power of going out of one's self, and appreciating whatever is noble and loving in another.

"If I'm going to fail, I might as well fail fabulously."

In an ideal world, this would be said by Starbuck before he performed some extremely risky maneuver and somehow pulled it off. Unfortunately, it was said by me when I realized it's 2 a.m. and I'd forgotten some homework due tomorrow at 9. But I'm seriously considering integrating the line into my current fanfic. ;)

I can almost hear him say that.
Oh no :( Any chance you can turn it in a at a later time ?
That line would fit in a BSG FF story perfectly.

Well, my teacher was sick today, so we didn't have class and I can turn in that assignment on Monday. I also got to use that hour to study for a test the following hour. I'm thankful for the divine intervention on my behalf. :)

This isn't 100% accurate, and it happens to be one of Dirk's favorite quotes, so here is the entire thing:

"There is a divine moment in our lives when we become One. It is called pro-creation and it is reborn continually and forever in the future we call children. They are our destiny and we are theirs. The extent to which we fail as parents... we fail as God's Children."

What the..?!?

Oh, I'm sorry, I should have checked it out myself. Going from memory, it sounded right. I really liked it, too. The sentiment, anyway. Jeez, why would someone rewrite it? :mad:

Thanks for posting it, John! I should get an app and fix the meme...

Yes, it's always nice to have some guidance from Above at those times ;) I'm glad :)

Awesome !!! Looking forward to it already.

Every time you wake up and ask yourself, "What good things am I going to do today?", remember that when the sun goes down at sunset, it will take a part of your life with it.
