Alfred Lord Tennyson

Just a tool
A sword never kills anybody; it is a tool in the killer's hand.
Those who know do not speak. Those who speak do not know.
People who know little are usually great talkers, while men who know much say little.
Letting things go
Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.

The two most important days
The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.
