Life Quotes

I used to work with this guy back in the day. Loony as a bird. But once in a while something would come out of his mouth that was pure genius. One day he tells me “Don’t stop till the blood on your sword is the blood of the king”. The way that I interpreted this was dont ever stop fighting till you own the place.

How about you? What have you heard that stuck with you?
