Home away from Home

How To Dominate Your Fitness Goals With Time Management

Time, energy and money – the big three. These, minus the use of other people, are the three resources you have to get what you want out of your life. The reason I’m ignoring other people is that although they can give you information, they aren’t going to get you lean or muscular. Only you can. So, it’s just these three resources.

Why We Need Great Men

Can modern communities do without great men? Can they dispense with hero-worship? Can they provide a larger wisdom, a nobler sentiment, a more vigorous action, by collective processes, than were ever got from the Titans? Can nations remain healthy, can all nations draw together, in a world whose brightest stars are film stars and whose gods are sitting in the gallery? . . . There is a sense of vacancy and of fatuity, of incompleteness. We miss our giants. We are sorry that their age is past. . . .We mourn the towering grandeur which surrounded and cheered our long painful ascent. Ah! If we could only find some new enormous berg rising towards the heavens as high above our plateau as those old mountains down below rose above the plains and marshes!

– Winston Churchill
