The Woman: 

—“[Some quote stating we are all brothers and sisters and should practice patience, kindness, and charity.]”— Buddha

The Man:

—“The greatest pleasure is to vanquish your enemies and chase them before you, to rob them of their wealth and see those dear to them bathed in tears, to ride their horses and clasp to your bosom their wives and daughters.”–Genghis Khan

The world is filled with all types of men. The strong give the weak the privilege of meekness. The able give the incompetent the privilege of sustenance. The brave give the coward the privilege of self image. It is one thing for the weak, incompetent, and cowardly to find peace of mind in their status as dependents and quite another to claim their excuse for their condition a good, rather than the privilege of remaining the protected children of better men.

Stoicism teaches action, achievement, and the full suite of heroic virtues are available to all of us, and that mindfulness that insulates us from the the chaos of life is available to us through the pursuit of such virtues.

Eat the weak.
