The Man

“Let me live deep while I live. Let me know the rich juices of red meat and stinging wine on my palate, the hot embrace of white arms, the mad exultation of battle when the blue blades flame and crimson, and I am content. Let teachers and priests and philosophers brood over questions of reality and illusion. I know this: if life is illusion, then I am no less an illusion, and being thus, the illusion is real to me. I live, I burn with life, I love, I slay, and am content.”

-- Conan The Barbarian, Robert E. Howard's amazing creation (and TMR's favorite comic book hero) who is the star of a hot new online video game*, as reported in the New York Times
