"Exertion, self-denial, endurance, these make the hero, but to the spoiled child they connote the evil of nature and the malice of man."
Richard Weaver (1910-1963)

Up is down, down is up;
Day is night, night is day;
So it seems.

"For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."

- Jesus Christ
(Luke 14:11)
