I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.
I have seen the best of you, and the worst of you, and I choose both.
But you don’t have to give everyone the benefit of the doubt.”
“You don’t have to assume the worst about everyone, either. The world isn’t always out to get you.
You will learn your best lessons from the worst people.
Keep a light, hopeful heart. But expect the worst.
And worse I may be yet: the worst is not
So long as we can say 'This is the worst.
The worst can happen, but the best remains
I am always prepared for the Worst,
making no space for sorrow surprises.
There are better people in the world, do not let the worst do the worst to you, you deserve the best in life.
[T]he useful idiots, the leftists who are idealistically believing in the beauty of the Soviet socialist or Communist or whatever system, when they get disillusioned, they become the worst enemies. That’s why my KGB instructors specifically made the point: never bother with leftists. Forget about these political prostitutes. Aim higher. [...] They serve a purpose only at the stage of destabilization of a nation. For example, your leftists in the United States: all these professors and all these beautiful civil rights defenders. They are instrumental in the process of the subversion only to destabilize a nation. When their job is completed, they are not needed any more. They know too much. Some of them, when they get disillusioned, when they see that Marxist-Leninists come to power—obviously they get offended—they think that they will come to power. That will never happen, of course. They will be lined up against the wall and shot.
There is a fine line between radiation being your best friend or your worst enemy.
