Even in death, this man has gumption. You could use a bit of his attitude. Don’t let anything stop you from doing what you want. If you want a coffin lined with thick walls and fitted with stereo, then go for it. This may be the only time you’ll hear the cadaver next door moaning and complaining. But hey, he can’t exactly call the cops to complain.
Life’s leaders earn respect any way they know how. If it’s through fear, the people will be shaking in their pants when you walk by. But at least you can make them do anything you want them to. Try holding a sharp knife the next time you ask for a favor. Chances are, that person’s gonna say yes in half a nanosecond.
