Welcome to today's #WednesdayWisdom from Way Of The Renaissance Man Starring Jim Woods
Today's insight was inspired by English-born American political activist, philosopher, political theorist, and revolutionary, Thomas Paine.
“The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection.”
— Thomas Paine
Perhaps my favorite Founding Father, Thomas Paine was a man of towering intellect. In this week’s quote, he offers up a few keys to being a “real man,” as in the type of man I certainly strive to be. So, smile during times of trouble, gain strength from pain and be heroic in thought. In short, be a real man.
