Quote of the Day: The Integrated Hero

“Because man is an integrated sum of mind and body, because his life requires a smooth causal flow between thought and action, no wedge can be driven into a great man's nature; he cannot be sundered into mindless action hero versus purely theoretical, inactive mental giant. A hero is a man whose life is dedicated to the creation and/or defense of rational values.”

-Andrew Bernstein, "The Philosophical Foundations of Heroism"
