I do not choose to be a common man.
It is my right to be uncommon, if I can,
I seek oppotunity - not security.
I do not wish to be a kept citizen.
Humbled and dull having the state look after me.
I want to take the calculated risk.
To dream and to build.
To fail and succeed.
To refuse to barter incentive for a dole;
I prefer the challenge of life.
To the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment.
Do the stale calm of Utopia.
I wil not trade freedom for beneficence.
Nor my dignity for a hand out.
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 benefit of my creations,
And to face the world boldly and say;
This with God's help, I have done.
All this is what it means
To be an Entrepreneur.
Character is much easier kept than recovered.
One Good Schoolmaster is more than a hundred priests.
