Quote
“The love of liberty loses none of its intensity. In the true manly heart it burns deeper and clearer with age, but it burns to enlighten and to warm, not to consume.” – Orestes Brownson

"When I fancied that I stood alone I was really in the ridiculous position of being backed up by all Christendom." – GK Chesterton

"I did try to found a heresy of my own; and when I had put the last touches to it, I discovered that it was orthodoxy." – GK Chesterton

"To complain that I could only be married once was like complaining that I had only been born once. It was incommensurate with the terrible excitement of which one was talking. It showed, not an exaggerated sensibility to sex, but a curious insensibility to it." – GK Chesterton

"Do you see this lantern?" cried Syme in a terrible voice. "Do you see the cross carved on it and the flame inside? You did not make it. You did not light it. Better men than you, men who could believe and obey, twisted the entrails of iron and preserved the legend of fire. There is not a street you walk on, there is not a thread you wear, that was not made as this lantern was, by denying your philosophy of dirt and rats. You can make nothing. You can only destroy." - GK Chesterton

"Swords!" shouted Syme, turning his flaming face to the three behind him. "Let us charge these dogs, for our time has come to die." – GK Chesterton

"[W]hen he found that he had to wear a sword, it stirred a boyish dream. As he passed out of the room...he had all the swagger of a troubadour. For these disguises did not disguise, but reveal." – GK Chesterton

"Where there are no oxen, the manger is clean, but abundant crops come by the strength of the ox." – Proverbs 14:4

"Manliness seeks and welcomes drama and prefers times of war, conflict, and risk. Manliness brings change or restores order at moments when routine is not enough, when the plan fails, when the whole idea of rational control by modern science develops leaks. Manliness is the next-to-last resort, before resignation and prayer." – Harvey Mansfield

Any of you lads or lassies in the Supply chain/logistics field? I am nearly 100% certain this is my next career move.Currently I'm working in project management, energy incentives.
