Inspirational Quotes


It is not the critic who counts,
nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbled,
or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena,
whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;
who strives valiantly;
who errs and comes short again and again;
who knows great enthusiasms, great devotions;
who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who, at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement,
and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,
so that his place shall never be with those timid souls
who know neither victory nor defeat.

- Theodore Roosevelt Inpirational Quotes, Motivational Quotes, Famous Quotes



It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.

kill one person and you are a murderer; kill more than two or three and you are a serial murder; put a uniform on and as long as you are on the right side, you can kill as many people as humanly possible and you are a hero and given a medal..........

"let your conscious be your guide." to kill in the name of god and country is noble and brave; killing an animal is considered ethical as long as you are killing the animal for food. to kill an animal just for the sake of killing is a criminal offense. if an animal kills a human for food, they will be hunted down like "animals." a king or president who drops a bomb on a country and kills 10,000's of people, both innocent and enemies is considered a leader; as long as he wins the war. god help him if he lost the war; he will be tried as a war criminal.....if you kill a soldier in the midst of combat that has a family and children and is forced to protect his homeland and ideals just like you are asked to do, ethically and morally your conscious is clear......our conscious and our rationalization and interpretatin of values and morals is so abstract. we put into prospective whatever cleanses are conscious and are morals....killing is killing; the one killed is dead no matter how you rationalize the act....your conscious may be clear but your hands are still bloodied.

how sweet it is to sit back in comfort and comment, complain, point fingers, abolish one's actions and decisions.....how sweet it is to have the luxury of never having to take a risk or dare to challenge a plan or a thought and take it from the drawing board to practicality.....how sweet it is to be so safe in your actions and criticize without the risk of being criticized yourself......how unfulfilling and cowardly it is to always sit on the sidelines and never participate in the game......
