Quote
"But then they danced down the street like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everyone goes "Awww!"
-Jack Kerouac "On the Road"

A Man’s Network : Five Acquaintances Every Man Should Have

Posted on October 7, 2009 at 7:23pm 3 Comments

One of the goals of manliness is to be an autonomous individual who’s able to take care of any problem that comes before him. It gives a man a sense of accomplishment to be able to say he can solve any problem by himself. But no man is a perfect Renaissance man or an island unto himself. Some projects are simply too big for one man alone, and some things take a level of skill that takes more attention than a novice can do by himself.

Every man needs help sometimes and he needs to know the… Continue
