Inspiration from Lefties: Patton

Inspiration from Lefties

“If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking”—George S. Patton

As a left hander I usually have counter-populist opinions or beliefs on many subjects. I remember reading a study a few years ago which stated that the area of the brain which makes you want to conform is more active in right handers and the area of the brain that makes you want to chanelleges the status quo is extremely active in

Actually I got this quote from my left-hander’s Calendar which inspired me to look up some other quotes from one of histories best generals:

Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. It is the spirit of the men who follow and of the man who leads that gains that victory.

Fixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man. Anything built by man, can be destroyed by him.—Actually I will add that nothing is 100% fail-safe.

I am not going to subsidize cowardice.

Hold’em by the nose and kick’em in the pants.

I wonder if I could have been here before as I drive up the Roman road the Theater seems familiar – perhaps I headed a legion up that same white road… I passed a chateau in ruins which I possibly helped escalade in the middle ages. There is no proof nor yet any denial. We were, We are, and we will be. – Patton believed in reincarnation and so do I— mainly because I like the idea of it.
