I have collected many crtics and many friends along the way , it is no coincidence IMHO that the critics have not prospered and the friends are winners in all aspects of life , it simply comes down to receiving what you give and reaping what you sow .

Like My Camerata Van says , it`s not what you said but how you made people feel that will be remembered .


Yep…stare at your image in the mirror in the dark_ you will be surprised at what the image will tell_

And
heartfelt practice my friend , thats what seperates the wheat from the chaff , thats whats important , It`s a hall of friendship that saves the warrior


I find it easy to tell who has real friends and who only thinks he has, just by reading their posts. :wink:

"...Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."

"Anything truly revolutionary is created by a few who see what is true and are willing to live according to that truth; but to discover what is true demands freedom from tradition, which means freedom from all fears."

The quote for churchill is appropriote for the context of this thread.

But.......



Churchill isn't exactly one to be preaching morality.

Yes, he helped kick hitlers ass.

He was of coarse, one of the greatest war time leaders in the world.


But he called Ghandi an insignificant fakir in a diaper who can do nothing(or something along those lines)

and helped tighten british control in africa during a small uprising thingy(i need to look back at my history book, i learned this in grade 8, so that was nearly seven years ago)

All in all, while he wasn't exactly an evil man, he isn't this super-saint like guy he's often protrayed as.


Im sure ill get torn apart in the rubuttal, i dont have any direct references to pull out at the moment, just my memory and my word.


No im not saying he was an evil guy. Just not someone to be quoting on terms of morality.

From the Book "Friends of Eddie Coyle":

"George V. Higgins's first novel is like a blast of Atlantic air; the Boston prosecutor virtually reinvents the language of the crime novel with his unique ability to breathe life into the dialogue of the smalltime hoodlum and hustler. Trying to pull off one final score, career crook Eddie Coyle finds himself squeezed out of shape by the people above and below him."

Eddie Coyle: "Life is hard; it is even harder when you are stupid."

This metaphor has been wisely and often raised by Sensei Van.
