Struggle is the father of all things. It is not by the principles of humanity that man lives or is able to preserve himself above the animal world, but solely by means of the most brutal struggle. If you do not fight, life will never be won.

Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.

I hate to upsurp alismouha's authority over this contest, but I also hate for people to think that I'm just dragging around on picking a topic. If anyone wants to know, I chose the topic "politics". It kinda goes along with our last topic, don't ya think? Anyway, I'll delete this post once alismouha comes in and puts up his post with the topic on it. Oh, and my friend, lydianm's brother, runinghorse, asked me to put the link to the Abraham Lincoln quotes pick here while I was doing this, so here it is: link

I'll post your pick links, alismouha, but only if you don't get mad at me for upsurping you by going ahead and posting the next topic. :) JK. I'll post them anyway.
