A clear indication of my mood can be taken from what I pull from my many DVD cabinets. Today, it was season 2 of Babylon 5, in particular – The Coming of Shadows.
There is a quote from this particular episode that has stuck with me since University. I used to have it printed out and stuck on the wall above my desk. It has many meanings: defiance, strength, determination to name but a few. For me, it serves as a reminder of the person I used to be – it provides inspiration and focus when I need it most:
“There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom. Against that power governments, and tyrants, and armies can not stand. They learned this lesson once. We will teach it to them again. Though it take a thousand years, we will be free.”
This quote doesn’t usually surface during good times. I’m not the only one with some tough decisions to make this week 🙁
