Wisdom From Athens

A long , long time ago, a guy named Sophocles once said:

“Rather to fail with honor than succeed by fraud”

If I asked ten people to interpret that quote through their paradigms, I bet that we would  end up with ten opinions, each worth twenty cents.

Nice Beard!





Anyone get it?

    That is both hopeless and hopeful.

    If honor doesn’t succeed, then corruption and fraud rule. Honor condemns her progeny, leaving generations to suffer.

    If you believe that our lives are simply a flash in an eternal universe, then doing what is right, even if it means failure, means that you’ve achieved eternal success.

    This makes me think of the runner Rosie Ruiz, who was declared the Boston Marathon winner in 1980. She was stripped of her “title” after organizers discovered that she only ran for a small portion of the race.
