they say you don't know what you got 'til it's gone / / they say that your darkest hour comes before your dawn

"Your battle cry does more than announce your presence," he said.  "It prepares you for combat by shattering the shackles of good manners and gentility. It is not a sound a gentleman or lady would choose to make. It is an animal sound - the roar of a killer stalking the jungle. As Master Liu used to say, a good battle cry 'unchains the tiger within.'"
~ Mr. Bennet [Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - Dawn of the Dreadfuls by Steve Hockensmith.]

I hope there's a tiger inside of me. Hungry. Hungry for everything life has on offer. I want it all. I want my tiger to feed upon all the positive in the world and tear apart the negative. I want it to boldly roar in the face of fear and purr in the presence of happiness. I want it to pounce on every great opportunity to pass me. I want it to fight for what I believe in most. I want my tiger to be King of the pride. [And yes, I'm well aware that the picture is of a lion, not a tiger, but it was too cute to say no to.]

On a side note: I finally finished that 30 Day Challenge. Took some time due to the fact that I didn't want to rush my answers. Some questions were easier than others, I'll admit, but it was good to have some sort of concept to write about every day - instead of pointless going-a-bouts in my day.

Also, my hands smell like Palmer's Cocoa Butter body cream. How delightful (:
