How we cite our quotes: (Story.Line)

Quote #4

"I never," he said, "take a step to one side. / And I'll prove to you that I won't change my ways / If I have to keep standing here fifty-nine days!" (Zax.17-19)

Pride is a waste of time. It doesn't get you where you're going. Of course, if you've got the time to burn, feel free to imbibe.

Quote #5

Of course the world didn't stand still. The world grew. (Zax.29)

Does the rest of the world care about your pride? The short answer is no. The long answer is no, nope, not at all, and no way, Jose.
