“The society teaches you to hold in. A gentleman is today classified as one who is restrained. He has good manners. I don’t know where the word ‘gentle’ came from except maybe from gentlemen, because the earliest gentlemen I had any recollection of on this planet certainly weren’t gentle. They were specialists in outflow. They went around all the time trying to find out some direction to do something.

“They talk to each other and all of a sudden one would miss a verb or something and they’d want to argue it a little bit on the field of honor. They were very outflow-happy. They were more or less above the law, they weren’t tremendously restrained. Nobody dared do anything to them. These men did some of the most fantastic things in battle and across the world. Nobody can do those things today. Why? It’s simply a matter that somebody was not quite as inhibited—not quite as prevented from outflowing.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Don’t say, ‘The day will come.’ Bring the day!”
Lyricist, Jakob Rotblit

Your action for today is to identify something you have been waiting to have happen, and take some action to move it forward.

Have an extraordinary day!
