"We cannot be sure that we have something worth living for unless we are ready to die for it."

Eric Hoffer (1902-1985)

So true, and yet the opportunity to die for something arises so infrequently in one's life. And that's probably a good thing!

I guess we're screwed huh?

Although the author may have meant this in the truest sense of dying for something that you believe in I choose to see it as something more symbolic of the sentiment: put up or shut up.

Many people claim that they belive strongly in certain things and yet their lives do not quite send the same message as though the words sounded good but had little actual conviction behind them.

If you talk the talk then walk the walk in whatever it is that you claim to believe in.

Anything worth doing is worth doing right. It goes back to Joe Namath's quote from a couple of weeks ago.
