“Killing two birds with one stone; two objectives with a single effort. It would be remarkable indeed if someone slinging a stone at a bird got one bird,let alone two. Ovid had a similar expression in Latin nearly 2,000 years ago.Related phrases were in English and French literature by the 16th century. Thomas Hobbes used the modern version in a work on liberty in 1656: T. H. thinks to kill two birds with one stone, and satisfy two arguments with one answer. Dictionary of Cliches by James Rogers - Wings Books, Originally New York: Facts on File Publications, 1985”. “The verse was initially used to describe a philosopher’s attempt to prove two arguments with a single solution. The implication was that killing two birds with one stone is extremely challenging and unlikely, and that the philosopher’s attempt should be viewed with suspicion. The philosopher failed to satisfy critics who said that his attempt was about as successful as trying to knock out two birds with a single stone.”2 notes Reblog

'Look there she goes that girl is so peculiar
I wonder if she’s feeling well
With a dreamy, far-off look
And her nose stuck in a book
What a puzzle to the rest of us is Belle!’

"Ummm… Let me think about it." Byakuran sat down and crossed his legs, balancing one of them playfully. "I remember one time you entered into my office after creating quite a ruckus out there. Once you brought that dangerous tool of yours quite near of my throat… That was exciting. And… what more did we do?" He muttered, seemingly deep in thought.
"I don’t know. But I’m sure that only one of all the conversations we had was pleasant and not dangerous… Let’s not repeat that. We could get rusty." He added as an after-thought, bringing his marshmallows out and eating one of them. "Why don’t you tell me something fun you have been into lately? You seem to be an active man."
“Ah, something fun? It’s kind of surprising; You being interested in my life?” The sociopath mused with a impish smile “Let’s just say I play many different games.” Surely the mafia don noticed that Makishima was not lying and was merely playing with everyone. “They say people are the strongest carrying weapons, perhaps that’s partly true but I’d say the strongest weapon is charisma.”
