' I do not choose to be a common man. It is my natural right to be uncommon. I seek opportunity to develop whatever talents God has given me, 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 succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to a 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 an earthly master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud, and unafraid; to think and act myself; to enjoy the benefit of my creations; to face the world boldly and say "This, with God's help, is what I have done." '
It pretty much summed me up :)
