I threw myself at her feet and begged her to yield to my desires at once; but she ordered me to hold fire until we were in bed.


“I do not want” she said laughing “to have to worry that your quintessence will fall on the rug. You shall see!“

Whats the wisest line you've ever heard in a martial arts film off the top of your head sir?

For wisdom and meaningful content you came to the wrong place my friend. I’m all about bloodshed and vengeance…So one of my favorite quotes is from Shogun Assassin:

‘They will pay… with rivers of blood!’

@linmanuel This is a bit late but I had to find a second to draw up something for my golden boy’s b-day.(1/16/17)
Keep on keeping on Lin, you’ve inspired so much passion in me that I didn’t even knew I had and took me out of a bad apathetic nothing motivated me rut. You were there when I needed this most and you deserve only the best ahead of you, onto your next year sir, keep up the amazing work!
