    "Life or death, live or die
    I will never live a lie
    I'm going there because I try
    I won't give in till I die
    I'm gon' make it, wrong or right
    Make it through the darkest night
    When the morning comes you'll see
    All I have is God in me"

    'I don't fear death so much as I fear its prologues: loneliness, decrepitude, pain, debilitation, depression, senility. After a few years of those, I imagine death presents like a holiday at the beach."

    "I don't like warriors. Too narrow-minded, no subtlety. And worse, they fight for hopeless causes. Honor? Huh! Honor's killed millions of people, it hasn't saved a single one.”

    The world calls me a loser.

    I get up every day and go to war with that statement!

    They think I'm lazy.

    I'm hungrier than ever, beast mode I'm eating all competition!

    They world says I got no money.

    Money comes to me easily, frequently, and abundantly in world's perfect way.

    The world says I'm crazy.

    The world belongs to the bold!

    They remind me of the loses I've taken, they say I'll never recover.

    I serve the god of restoration, I will make a comeback!

    They say you can't pay your bills with dreams.

    Success will come off the assembly line of my mind!

    They say I only have average talent.

    Hard work and discipline are the great equalizers!

    Why don't you get a 9-5, a normal job that pays every week?

    Because I'm the head and not the tail, above not below. I was strategically design for greatness!

    It looks like your God has forgotten you.

    My God will never leave me nor forsake me!

    You really believe all that stuff you're saying?

    Destiny is obligated by universal law to concede to the demands of unwavering faith and I believe!
    I'm a champion!
    Committed!
    Hungry!
    Dedicated!
    Fearless!
    Bold!
    Never wavering!
    Full of faith!
    Anointed!
    Prosperous!
    Strong!
    Righteous!
    Focus!
    Discipline!
    Willing to do whatever it takes to be a champion!

    “A business man who was also a biologist and a sociologist would know, approximately, the right thing to do for humanity. But, outside the realm of business, these men are stupid. They know only business. They do not know mankind nor society, and yet they set themselves up as arbiters of the fates of the hungry millions and all the other millions thrown in. History, some day, will have an excruciating laugh at their expense."
    ― Jack London, The Iron Heel

    I feel the same way about Seattle
    "San Francisco is gone. Nothing remains of it but memories."
    Jack London

    Based on my own experience, the three most common sources of software bugs are, not necessarily in order:

    - Programming
    - Localization into new languages
    - Attempts at bugfixing causing new bugs or making existing bugs worse

    You forgot: Saying "everything works now" aloud...
