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

Beard vitamins? Or other ways to thicken the beard?

Hello mates,Largely, my beard is good.  Not perfect, though.  Very thick on the chin, sideburns good, slightly patchy in the middle of the jaw, thin on neck (underside of jaw).  For some unknown reason, the left side of my chin has thinned out quite a bit, and it looks lopsided.  Not sure why.I do have a terrible habit of fiddling with my beard (and therefore pulling hairs) without intentionally doing it, and I continually try to find ways to subvert myself.Anyway, any ideas on a good beard…See More
