Today's Quote

Whether we realize it or not, most of us define ourselves by opposing rather than by favoring something or someone. To put it another way, it is easier to react than to act. Nothing arouses a passion for dogma more than a good antagonist.

It doesn't have to be an individual character. It could be a nation, a race, a group … anything."
