Survival was my only hope, success my only revenge.
We need to save the Arctic not because of the polar bears, and not because it is the most beautiful place in the world, but because our very survival depends upon it.
Lewis Gordon Pugh
Nations, like stars, are entitled to eclipse. All is well, provided the light returns and the eclipse does not become endless night. Dawn and resurrection are synonymous. The reappearance of the light is the same as the survival of the soul.
Survival is a privilege which entails obligations. I am forever asking myself what I can do for those who have not survived.

The rules of survival never change, whether you're in a desert or in an arena.

It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory.
W. Edwards Deming

As a chef, I could not wash my hands - nor clean pots, pans, utensils, meats or produce, nor make soups and sauces - if I did not have clean water. Were this to happen, of course, these would be the least of my concerns. Because water is the linchpin of survival: without it, not much else matters.
Lying is not only a defense mechanism; it's also a coping mechanism and a survival technique.

Oliver Joseph Lodge
