It is my right to be an uncommon man.

I do not choose to be a common man, it is my right to be uncommon.
I seek opportunity, not security, I do not wish to be a kept citizen, cowed and deluded by having the state to 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 dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment. Instead of a stale 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, to enjoy the benefits of my creations and to face the world boldly, and to say "this I have done!".

ALL THIS IS WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A MAN.
