"Today I remembered something that my Dad said: We were on the base, and we saw a sign that said, "Free Leann Womack Concert."  "I didn't know that she was in captivity," he said.  He did have a good sense of humor. "

Quote
"A king may move a man, a father may claim a son. But remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God you cannot say 'but I was told by others to do thus' or that 'virtue was not convenient at the time' This will not suffice. Remember that." - Edward Norton as King Baldwin IV in Kingdom of Heaven

Brian's Manly Mental Health Minute for 3/1/10 Living Up to Your Values Part 2: Understanding Self Control and Its Limits

Posted on March 1, 2010 at 10:30pm 0 Comments



Many of the values expressed by men on various parts of this forum are what one called call "traditional values" and many of these values center around controlling one's impulses. Many men consider self control to be a virtue in and of itself. However things that are easy are rarely considered virtues and for men honestly struggling to live up to there values the admonishment to simply control themselves better is often less than helpful. In this manly mental health minute I will examine… Continue

Brian's Manly Mental Health Minute for 2/22/10: The Pitch: How Salesmen Sell us Things We Never Knew We Needed.

Posted on February 22, 2010 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

There is no doubt that managing your money is an important skill every man should possess as it is essential to ensure his own well being and providing for his family. That being said salesmen are experts in separating fools from their money and can usually separate even a wise man from his hard earned cash. This shouldn't be surprising as their own livelihood depends on this skill. However just what is it that they do that can turn the normal frugal man… Continue

Brian's Manly Mental Health Minute for 2/15/10: Living Up to Your Values Part 1: Recognizing Cognitive Distortions.

Posted on February 15, 2010 at 8:00am 2 Comments

One of the central themes of the Art of Manliness has been, and doubtless will continue to be helping men better define their manly values. While values will no doubt vary

from man to man, we are all in agreement that manly men strive to not

only have manly values, but to live up to them as well. However as

Adlai Stevenson put "It t is often easier to fight for

principles than to live up to them..."…

Launching Brian's Manly Mental Health Minute

Posted on February 8, 2010 at 1:54pm 3 Comments

One thing I have noticed as I peruse the main sight and the forums is that a lot of the posts and discussions have to do with mental health. Discussions about interpersonal relationships (marriage, dating, friendships), about personal resiliency or "hardihood", coping with stressful circumstances, and becoming the best man you can be are all, in a broad sense at least, mental health discussions. So, as I have wanted to…

What Do We Learn From History?

I decided to put this question in the main forum, because if it was in a group like The History Buffs, there would be a smaller audience. Because everyone learns history at some point in his education, it is a matter that could be of interest to almost all members and not just a select few.So we all have learned some form of history in school, from local to national to the histories of far off lands and times. What is it that we learn from people of bygone places and times? There are some…See More
