    #9 and #15 – headed into my final year of univeresity, these will become my mantra.

      The second one is from Invictus, by William Ernest Henley. It's been my mantra for a long while:

      Out of the night that covers me,
      Black as the pit from pole to pole,
      I thank whatever gods may be
      For my unconquerable soul.

      In the fell clutch of circumstance
      I have not winced nor cried aloud.
      Under the bludgeonings of chance
      My head is bloody, but unbowed.

      Beyond this place of wrath and tears
      Looms but the Horror of the shade,
      And yet the menace of the years
      Finds and shall find me unafraid.

      It matters not how strait the gate,
      How charged with punishments the scroll,
      I am the master of my fate:
      I am the captain of my soul.

      In other words, Keep Calm and Chive On.

      Was that a relativity joke? Well done.

    If you need a silly post by say, a recovering drug addict (Downey Jr) who plays make believe for a lot of money, to inspire you then you need a fucking clue.

    I wish George Carlin were still alive. He'd have a field day with this touchy feely mawkish bullshit.

    • Derp

      Oh yeah, George Carlin NEVER touched drugs…

      WTF are you smoking?

      • Chim Richels

        That's the whole point.

        Carlin hated all this touchy feel bullshit.

        And I'm sure he'd laugh at touchy feely 'deep stuff' coming from a fucking druggie.

    Poem: "Invictus"
    by William Ernest Henley
    Credit where credit is due. Dad used to quote this poem to me and my brothers all the time. 🙂
    "Out of the night that covers me, black as the pit from pole to pole…"
    Y'all should read it.

    These galleries are awesome.

    #12 you've gotta love a Fight Club quote. Chuck Palahnuik is amazing!

  • Namjak

    #19 is John Wooden. Not Jack Buck.

  • Lefty


    But if you think you are actually as talented as these people, you need a serious reality check.

  • honebone

    Chive steals these posts from sadanduseless.com and gives them no credit!
