Go here and reload until you get five quotes that sum up your philosophy or outlook, then post them.

Reputation is what other people know about you. Honor is what you know about yourself.
Lois McMaster Bujold, "A Civil Campaign", 1999

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.' You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
Eleanor Roosevelt (1884 - 1962)

The man who doesn't read good books has no advantage over the man who can't read them.
Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

First weigh the considerations, then take the risks.
Helmuth von Moltke (1800 - 1891)

Everyone has his burden; what counts is how you carry it.
Joe Brown and David Brown

I've given my characters a healthy dose of Veritaserum and now they have to tell the truth. What does this mean for you? Ask my characters questions about anything and everything and they will truthfully answer it. So, go ahead and ask what you want. He can't beat around the bush with half-truths.

I have a meme over here open to anyone who has roleplayed with Bill or any of my other characters. Feel free to answer as many or as few of the questions as appeals to you, since not all of them will apply to everybody. ^_^

What do you hope for?

To hope for something you must both want it and believe in it. Hope is both beautiful and treacherous, an object of both reverence and suspicion. It is the doctor for our ills, the controller of our fears, the liar in which so many still trust. Faith, operating independent of logic and reason, reaches out a hand in the dark and offers hope.

And you want to know what I hope for? )

The How's My Driving? Meme

Awe. A feeling of reverence, wonder or dread. Possibly a combination of all three.

So many things you've seen in your lifetime. So many even in just the few years since the word came that your home worlds had been decimated by the Cylons. Sights whose scope and majesty fully deserve the labels awe-inspiring, awesome.

So many ... spoilers through 4.10, Revelations )

Write page 57 of your 300-page autobiography.

Note from the mun: William Adama has no interest in writing an autobiography. We're talking none whatsoever. The following is therefore an excerpt from the kind of book that might be written by a historian a generation or so in his future – assuming humanity survives long enough to have future generations, let alone record the history of the Exodus.

While it might seem ... minor spoiler for Revelations )

What are the five steps to a successful negotiation?

Steps? We're not talking about a frakking dance here. Commit yourself to some fixed set of steps in a negotiation and you'll find yourself knocked on your ass by an opponent who's allowed himself more flexibility than you did.

But if you want guidelines ... no spoilers )

Write about a time that you were the bearer of bad news.

Carolanne stared at the neat stack of paper on the table in front of her. "What the frak is this?"

Bill took a long sip of coffee to brace himself. "That should be pretty obvious."

Obvious enough ... no spoilers )
