- Be not afraid of greatness: some men are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

As always, My "Mute" Mondays aren't, but I got this nifty piece of code that let's me keep the pictures and the words separate so I guess I can put a little icing on the cake.
I woke up at 4:17 this morning. Not because I wanted to, but for the simple reason that my body, brain and mind wouldn't let me be. I am making an honest attempt to straighten out the kinks in my life. The stresses and pressures of faithfully analyzing myself are taking it's toll. There's a lot to fix at the moment. I am pretty certain that many of you who are reading this probably attempt the same thing on a regular basis.

Today's theme is greatness and I have been thinking about what makes a person great. The only definition I could come up with without looking in a dictionary is: The ability to act bravely and unselfishly thereby creating a positive legacy that improves the quality of life for people, all people.
I choose a few photographs of contemporary figures that I perceived to be great. I could have expanded the amount of subjects that I wanted to treat, but then I would be searching through Google image files for the next six weeks.
Hope your week is a worthwhile one!
