experience has proved, that chance is as often, as much concerned in deciding these matters as bravery — and always more than the justice of the Cause; I would not therefore have your life, by the remotest possibility, exposed, when it may be reserved for so many greater occasions

George Washington asking Lafayette not to challenge Lord Carlisle to a duel, October 4th 1778.  [source on founders.archive.gov]

Lafayette ignored Washington and challenged Carlisle to a duel anyway, but, thankfully, Carlisle declined.

The Laurens-Lee duel was a couple months afterwards, and I imagine at that point Washington’s young family had decided that it was better to ask forgiveness for dueling rather than permission.

or you could die, and we need you alive!…
your wife needs you alive, son, I need you alive

Grant said he did a scene with JWS as Jay Garrick. Maybe FP will take place on E3? October 4th can't come fast enough!

Either they’re on E3 or Jay appears on E1 again, maybe on his own accord or due to the timeline changes. I can’t wait!!

  • Kidd Kaddrick:One of my best friends is Joe Jonas and we're on our way to a TV Studio. We're just shooting a breeze, and I'm like so have you talked to Camilla, blah blah, and he's like "Well, nice day." Hes like changing the subject and everything, and then I mention you and he goes "she's awesome". So, I'm just giving you a heads up.
  • Taylor:Well, that's nice!
  • Kaddrick:Yeah, so he wouldnt talk about any girl, and then I bring you up and he's like "she's awesome". So, I just thought I'd throw that in there. Let you know. Joe's all good.
  • Taylor:Aw.
  • Other DJ:Do you think Joe's awesome?
  • Kidd:What should I tell Joe in return?
  • Taylor:It's a nice day.

Happy Birthday to the most beautiful person out there! I love you so much Derrick Rose. It’s been amazing seeing you grow throughout all these years I’ve seen you play. You’ve matured, got better and you have earned more confidence in yourself. I can’t wait until you prove all the haters wrong when you come back stronger than ever from your injury. Belief, hope, focus, push and drive. Keep those words in your head. I love you more than anyone could imagine, recover soon.
