Quote
Warren Miller:
"If you don't do it this year, you'll be a year older when you do."

"A career is a job you have had for to long."

G.K. Chesterton:
"Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to that arrogant oligarchy who merely happen to be walking around."

Thomas Jefferson:
"Those who desire to give up freedom in order to gain security, will not have, nor do they deserve, either one"

Socrates:
"The unexamined life is not worth living"

"Having the fewest wants, I am nearest to the gods"

Seneca:
"It is not the man who has too little, but the man who craves more, that is poor"

Bertrand Russell:
"The time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time."

"It is obvious that 'obscenity' is not a term capable of exact legal definition; in the practice of the Courts, it
means 'anything that shocks the magistrate.' "

Marcus Aurelius:
"If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment. "

"How ridiculous and unrealistic is the man who is astonished at anything that happens in life."

Terence Mckenna:
"If the words 'life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness' don't include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn't worth the hemp it was written on."

Plutarch:
"Philosophum non facit barba!" - The beard does not define a philosopher.

Date Night Ideas

Romance is manly. And every man should know how to plan a great night out for his woman. But, let's face it, sometimes ideas are few and far between. This group is for exchanging ideas about the venerable "Date Night" and other acts of romance.
