I do not choose to be a common man

I do not choose to be a Common Man. It is my right to be uncommon ... if I can.

I seek opportunity ... not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the State look after me. I want to take the calculated risk, to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed.

I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence, the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia.

I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat.

It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid; to think and act for myself; enjoy the benefits of my creations and to face the world boldly and say,

This I have done!

“I more and more see the need both of courage to stand fast and
the willingness to change.
Even though these two characteristics seem contrary and paradoxical,
a successful life demands a proper mixture of them both.

"One is the lock and the other is the key;
either without the other becomes useless.

Roger Babson (1875-1967)
author, entrepreneur, educator, philanthropist
