Saturday Share Time
I woke up early this Saturday morning, 5am Hawaiian, and jump right on the computer to catch up on some blogs I like to read and also do a little paleo research. I never expected to find a sweet Genghis Khan Quote. Again, this comes straight from someone who knows better than me and someone you should get to know if power is something that is lacking in your life. I pulled this gem of a quote from John Welbourns Blog, Talk To Me Johnnie. Coach John is also the creator of what I think is the most thoughtful, exciting, and useful programming in CrossFit circles, CrossFit Football. For all things smart, funny and powerful check out http://talktomejohnnie.com/ and http://www.crossfitfootball.com/
I often wonder why we humans just can’t all get along. Well, this quote actually sums it up. My interpretation is that to some degree we are all evolved from a species that killed other similar species to stick around. You know, the whole survival of the fittest thing. That being said we all, to some degree, enjoy conquering others. Everyone enjoys winning more than losing. In its most innocent form we see this in card games and sport. At its worst we see murder and war. Happy Saturday everyone, hope you find yourself on the good end of the fight.
“The greatest happiness is to scatter your enemy, to drive him before you, to see his cities reduced to ashes, to see those who love him shrouded in tears, and to gather into your bosom his wives and daughters.” – Genghis Khan
