The real test of a man is not how well he plays the role he has invented for himself, but how well he plays the role that destiny assigned to him.

There will be time, there will be time
To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet
There will be time to murder and create,
And time for all the works and days of hands,
That lift and drop a question on your plate;
Time for you and time for me,
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of a toast and tea.

- T. S. Eliot -

ALF - Civil Disobedience

i love you, Folks !!!
keep on your amazing work !!!!
Call us violent, call us terrorists, call us thugs, call us anarchists. They're all used regularly. All we're doing is asking for change. We want people to stop using violence against animals.
