The Tiger

“Time is the substance from which I am made. Time is a river which carries me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger that devours me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire.” – Jorge Luis Borges

“Better to live one year as a tiger, than a hundred as a sheep.” – Madonna
