One Final Bonus – Dave Duncan Quote 

“Being a man is not a matter of whether hair grows on your chin, lad. It’s inside your head. Some males never make it at all. Being a man is rolling up your sleeves and telling the world ‘Now I’ll play by the real rules—no more wooden swords. If I succeed, then the credit belongs to me, not my parents or teachers or employers, and I shall savor the prizes without guilt, knowing I earned them. And if I fail, then I’ll pay the penalties without whimpering or blaming anyone else.’ That’s what manhood is,”
― Dave Duncan, Magic Casement
