Words of Wisdom from Tender Branson

"You have a choice. Live or die.
Every breath is a choice.
Every minute is a choice.
Every time you don't throw yourself down the stairs, that's a choice. Every time you don't crash your car, you re-enlist.”


“The only difference between a suicide and a martyrdom really is the amount of press coverage.”


“The joke is, we all have the same punchline.”
