The Wisdom of Jesse Custer

Near the end of Preacher, the “modern epic of life, death, love and redemption,” (Preacher, Vol. 9: Alamo) Jesse Custer offers a great bit of wisdom. He says:

We don’t gotta just accept the way things are. Just like we don’t gotta let ourselves be lessened by death or any damn thing. Just like we don’t need no God to shape the world for us. We can make our lives the way we want them- or we ain’t worth nothing.

So true. If you haven’t read Preacher, please do. It is excellent. And you’ll find, like I did, a hero to look up to.
