    I love Nelson Mandela

    “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”

    Nelson Mandela

    I tan i epi tas literally "Either this or on this" in ancient Greek. It refers to a Spartan warrior's shield handed it to him by his wife or mother before battle, meaning come back carrying it having won, or being carried on it (dead). No Spartan warrior would ever flee battle or return non-victorious, it was to the death.

    C'est la vie. My paternal grandmother was French Canadian.

    I like my life. Said daily, thought much more often.

    This was going to be mine as well.

    I'll go with this instead: "We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals." -Immanuel Kant

    It's a quote I've tried to live my life and my social circle by.
