The Sheep, or the Wolf

Happy Tuesday! Here is your quote of the day:

"It's a choice, Wesley, that each of us must face: to remain ordinary, pathetic, beat-down, coasting through a miserable existence, like sheep herded by fate, or you can take control of your own destiny and join us, releasing the caged wolf you have inside. Our purpose is to maintain stability in an unstable world - kill one, save a thousand. Within the fabric of this world, every life hangs by a thread. We are that thread - a fraternity of assassins with the weapons of fate. This is the decision that lies before you now: the sheep, or the wolf. The choice is yours".

This lovely, upbeat sell for the awesome world of assassins was performed by Morgan Freeman as his character Sloan in Wanted. Wesley, played by the delicious James McAvoy, seems to embody the very ideas of wasted potential, worthlessness and that lovely dull brain jelly I mentioned in my first post; you know, the way your brain melts when sitting day after day in front of a computer entering 1s and 0s into a system. Oh Wesley, I feel your pain. Too bad I can't pick up a gun and start killing people, not to mention make out with Angelina to make it all better. Oh well, as a friend of mine likes to say: "Such is life". Here are some kick-ass pictures to go along with this highly insightful and kick-ass quote:
