Life Philosophy: The Good Man, the Great Man, the Rare Man

 

 

 

“A good man draws a circle around himself and cares for those within: his woman, his children. 

 

 

 

Other men draw a larger circle and bring within their brothers and sisters. 

 

 

 

But some men have a great destiny. They must draw around themselves a circle that includes many, many more. Your father was one of those men. You must decide for yourself whether you are, as well.”
– Tic’Tic (Cliff Curtis) to D’Leh (Steven Strait)

 

 

 

AN ALTERED VERSION that also sounds good:

 

“A good man draws a circle around him, and in it he cares for his family, his wife and children.  

 

 

A great man draws a larger circle including his brothers, his friends, and protects them as he would his family. 

 

 

But then there is the rare man who has a special destiny. His circle extends beyond boundaries to include the world of innocents who lack the will to defend themselves. 

 

 

– 10,000 BC, the movie

 

 You must decide for yourself whether you are, as well . . .

a RARE man or woman!
