I have this framed on my wall.“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
― Theodore Roosevelt
I think this is a great idea, us meatheads actually have ideas and thoughts outside the realm of iron. A place to share this would be great."Pick up your goddamn cross and walk up the hill! You've got a heavy load of suffering to bear and a fair bit of it is going to be unjust. So what are you going to do about it? Accept it voluntarily and try to transform as a consequence." Dr Jordan Peterson
I have been studying ALL philosophies, theology, mythology, and psychology for over a decade relentlessly and passionately. I opt for a philosophy section on the board I think we are long overdue and It will serve of enormous merit to many souls and increase our fellowship/brotherhood here.
