So the alt right makes an idiotic argument and I called it out. What's the issue?

you'll have to be more specific with your question since your words don't tend to be bound to reality.
Thanks from Aufgeblassen

I heard this quote somewhere. I like it but I'm not sure of the author.


Quote:
Bad times make strong men.
Strong men make good times.
Good times make weak men.

I agree you are specificity challenged.

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.

I don't fear death so much as I fear its prologues: loneliness, decrepitude, pain, debilitation, depression, senility. After a few years of those, I imagine death presents like a holiday at the beach.

Quote:

The mind is its own place, and in it self
Can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.

What matter where, if I be still the same,
And what I should be, all but less then he

Whom Thunder hath made greater?
Here at least we shall be free; the Almighty hath not built

Here for his envy, will not drive us hence:
Here we may reign secure, and in my choice

To reign is worth ambition though in Hell:
Better to reign in Hell, then serve in Heaven.
- Lucifer speaking in Paradise Lost by Milton
