Winter Born

Winter Born's picture
I am an ex-art student/ pothead. I was reborn in fire much like the phoenix. 9-11 changed everything about me. watching people jumping from buildings... I joined the army and trained for war. watched friends die, made enemies die. came close a few times myself. The fires of rage that were born on 9-11 have yet to die down... Sometimes I wonder if they ever will.


"Ultimately, we are all dead men. Sadly we cannot choose how, but! we can decide how we meet that end. In order that we are remembered... as men."-Gladiator...

"People sleep peacably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf" -George Orwell

"I will not run, this is my sacrifice,. For I am Winter born...In the fury of this darkest hour, We will be your light. You ask me for my sacrifice and I am Winter born... Without denying a faith in God, that I have never known, I hear the angels call my name, and I am Winter born..." -Cruxshadows, "Winter Born"

"Human nature is bad. Good is a human product... A warped piece of wood must be steamed and forced before it is made straight; A metal blade must be put to the whetstone before it becomes sharp. Since the nature of people is bad, to become corrected they must be taught by teachers and to be orderly they must acquire ritual and moral principles"
- Sun Tzu

"Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breath free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door."
-Emma Lazarus, "The New Colossus

"...The most expensive thing in the world is a second-best military establishment, good but not good enough to win."
-Robert A. Heinlein,
"The happy days ahead"
in Expanded Universe

Friends have come, friends have gone, I've found love and I've felt heartache. I have known success, and i've tasted defeat. But? I will go on, as long as your music keeps paving my way. Sing me home Ry, sing me home.- random post I saw on youtube for Ry Cooder. couldnt think of a way to say it better myself.
