The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

“A decline in courage may be the most striking feature which an outside observer notices in the West in our days. The Western world has lost its civil courage, both as a whole and separately, in each country, each government, each political party, and of course in the United Nations. Such a decline in courage is particularly noticeable among the ruling groups and the intellectual elite, causing an impression of loss of courage by the entire society. Of course there are many courageous individuals but they have no determining influence on public life […] Should one point out that from ancient times decline in courage has been considered the beginning of the end?” – Aleksander Solzhenitsyn

  1. Words of wisdom from a great writer. For some insight into where he may have gained some of this insight read his book(s) The Gulag Archipelago. A long and sometimes arduous read but you will come away with a better understanding of life in all it’s variables and what it takes to succeed in life.
