Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair or f**k beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.
(Ian McShane as) Al Swearengen in HBO's Deadwood

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way.
A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.
