People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself. But the self is not something one finds; it’s something one creates.

– Thomas Szasz


It just all disappears, doesn’t it ?
Everything you are,
gone in a moment like breath on a mirror

– The Doctor, Doctor Who 

We have free will, and with that comes great responsibility.
And sometimes great loss.

Harold Finch, to John Reese (Person of Interest, 3×13)
