Discover the best thing to give to your enemy, your opponent, your friend, your child, your father, your mother, yourself, and to all mankind.

“Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off the goal.” – Hannah More

Amongst the monsters and ghouls and ghosts, the vampires and werewolves and zombies, is a monster who stands between you and the life you really want.
