"You either die a hero, or live long enough to see yourself become the villain."

Props to whomever can tell me where the quote came from. And by props I mean prize. And by prize I mean I'll think of something. No cheating.

But I have been thinking about it for a while, even if it was not in so many words. I heard this quote again recently, and I thought it well articulated some of the struggles I go through. Weakness does not happen overnight. Corruption is not instantaneous. Nobody starts life thinking that they want to grow up to be the bad guy. But it happens to many. Many who do not step out in faith to defend what they believe and what is right. Standing up for what is right can cost alot in the same way that standing by God and Jesus can cost alot. It may be that on that journey that Jesus takes you on, it may cost you your right eye or your right hand. The point is that it is far better to stay true to what you believe, even if it costs your life than to give in to what is easy yet wrong. Is integrity easy? Not always. Will there be failures and setbacks? I'm sure there will be for all of us. But..."Success is not final. Failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that matters." -Winston Churchill
