The Gunslinger’s Creed
I do not aim with my hand; He who aims with his hand has forgotten the face of his father. I aim with my eye.
I do not shoot with my hand; He who shoots with his hand has forgotten the face of his father. I shoot with my mind.
I do not kill with my gun; He who kills with his gun has forgotten the face of his father. I kill with my heart.
(from Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” series of books, which I just finished. That is, indeed, one Badass Creed)
