"I think you might have something here. I followed a similar path, married at 21, went to college at 23 and just had our first child at 28. Nothing crazy but it definitely had some unique challenges and blessings. Let me know how I can help."

"OK:  lack of respect, lack of maturity, and to a lesser degree, lack of money.  Thank you:  I get it now. You might get posts that are helpful on the first two of these from men who did not marry young as well."

"Some good thoughts, for sure. The idea of the blog is to help guys develop that maturity--not just get cash! I was 21 when I got married, and I thought I was fairly mature, but I learned about a day into the honeymoon how far off I was. So instead…"

Stoicism and the Sublime

Posted on November 15, 2012 at 4:23pm 0 Comments

In his 18th Century tome A Philosophical Inquiry into the Origins of our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful," Edmund Burke lined out the cause behind man's defensive use of stoicism:

No passion so effectually robs the mind of all its powers of acting and reasoning as fear. For fear being an apprehension of pain or death, it operates in a manner that resembles actual pain. Whatever therefore is terrible, with regard to sight, is sublime too, whether this…
