Two from the Commonplace Book

I can't die yet. There are many men I must kill first!

On the door it says what to do to survive
But we were not born to survive
Only to live
-W S Merwin, The River of Bees

For the record, I think the first at least is hilarious...

I keep a list. Not a Killing List, but a Smack the Shit Out of List. Every once in a while, I'll be thinking, "Oh yeah, that gets you on the list."

I'm a petty creature, the List makes me feel better.

Know the this age...and I'd omit 'people' and insert 'quarry'.
