"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat."

Not the greatest, but I like it

This reminds me of a great rant by Dennis Miller, one that we should all take note of...


The joke world can get tough; wear a cup. Don't let them know they've rattled you if it hits close to home. You should be able to take a joke right in the solar plexus; get up! Get that two-cycle weedwacker engine of a brain humming and give as good as you got.

And if you get bested, go home, sharpen your verbal machete and get right back and get ready for the next thicken. DONT call Gloria Alred; DONT go to court; DONT steal a machine gun and shoot everybody at the party who made fun of your Jiffy Pop rag hat. Relax!

We should question it all; poke fun at it all; piss off on it all; rail against it all; and most importantly, for Christ's sake, laugh at it all. Because the only thing separating holy writ from complete bullshit is your perspective. Its your only weapon. Keep the safety off. Don't take yourself too seriously.

This is about Marcus Cato the Younger, and it refers to his last efforts to preserve the Roman Republic against Caesar's tyrrany:

"He stood alone against the vices of a degenerate state that was sinking to destruction beneath it's very weight. He stayed the fall of the Republic to the utmost that one man's hand could do to draw it back, until he was at last withdrawn himself, and shared in that fate which he had so long averred. And the two whom Heaven willed could never part were blotted out together, for Cato did not survive freedom, nor freedom Cato. "

-Seneca, De Constantibus


Every lover of republican virtue should read the few pages of Plutarch's Life of Cato

You're obliged to pretend respect for people and institutions you think absurd. You live attached in a cowardly fashion to moral and social conventions you despise, condemn, and know lack all foundation. It is that permanent contradiction between your ideas and desires and all the dead formalities and vain pretenses of your civilization which makes you sad, troubled and unbalanced. In that intolerable conflict you lose all joy of life and all feeling of personality, because at every moment they suppress and restrain and check the free play of your powers. That's the poisoned and mortal wound of the civilized world.

"War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

- John Stuart Mill

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorius triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

Here are the quotes, but can you name the authors?

"The death-knell of the republic had rung as soon as the active power became lodged in the hands of those who sought, not to do justice to all citizens, rich and poor alike, but to stand for one special class and for its interests as opposed to the interests of others."


"All great things are simple, and many can be expressed in single words: freedom, justice, honor, duty, mercy, hope."
