|The Art and Artifice of Poetry | Hamza Yusuf & Scott Crider|
I'm going to tell you the truth. You're a young man, and I've been around long enough to know some things.
This is it: We're Aliens, really. This is not our planet. We're just here for a short time. It's like a prison that you've been put in.
Behave well, and you'll get off on good behavior. But ignore the other inmates, because they're crazy.
