the smuggler’s bible

Appetite, with an opinion of obtaining, is called hope

You came from the forest, don’t forget. You came from the plains. You came from the sea.

Consider all of the hard work your ancestors did to become biggest and baddest. There was so much to be subjugated—one small piece at a time.

They were unflinching.

You will be unflinching.

My friend, I know you can do it.

Wield the knife skillfully. Your hands will not tremble as you place your enemies upon the altar. Their power will become your power.

May your howls echo through the night, and may you perform savage acts.

I will pray for you.
