It is impossible to win the great prizes of life without running risks.
- Theodore Roosevelt
The worst of all fears is the fear of living.
- Theodore Roosevelt |


Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
- Theodore Roosevelt
Pray not for lighter burdens, but for stronger backs.
- Theodore Roosevelt |


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 and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and 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 know neither victory nor defeat.
- Theodore Roosevelt
I am only an average man, but, by George, I work harder at it than the average man.
- Theodore Roosevelt |

I am somebody. I am me. I like being me. And I need nobody to make me somebody.-Louis L'Amour

My future is one I must make for myself.-Louis L'Amour

It takes more courage to reveal insecurities than to hide them, more strength to relate to people than to dominate them, more "manhood" to abide by thought-out principles rather than blind reflex. Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles and an immature mind.
All men are afraid in battle. The coward is the one who lets his fear overcome his sense of duty. Duty is the essence of manhood.
To have no loyalty is to have no dignity, and in the end, no manhood.
When a man is pushed, tormented, defeated, he has a chance to learn something; he has been put on his wits; on his manhood; he has gained the facts; learned his ignorance; is cured of the insanity of conceit; has got moderation and real skill.

"Freedom is never more than one generation
away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the
bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on to them to
do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our
children and our children's children what it was once like in the United
States where men were free". -Ronald Wilson Reagan

If I were to nominate a man for inclusion in the hall of Great Men ... I would nominate Dr. John G Mitchell (now deceased) from Portland, Oregon. One of his famous quotes occurred at a pastor's conference where he was the keynote speaker and several hundred pastors were in attendance. At one session, Dr. Mitchell asked a question of these ministers and it was met by stony silence. Then he said, "Don't you fellows ever read your Bibles?"

Perhaps only great men will join this group. I wondered at the title myself, though I figured the real intent would be self-evident as the discussions began. Thanks for joining.
