"I didn't just kill fifty, I didn't kill a hundred. I killed a thousand. I killed ten thousand! And I was good at it. And it wasn't for vengeance. It wasn't for greed. It was because I liked it! Cassandra was nothing. Her village was nothing. Do you know who I was? I was Death. [laugh] Death Death on a horse!

49. Remember your mortality, and its fragility.

50. Remember your humanity: "We're none of us perfect."
