Quote: Gettin’ Money Prison-Style | VICE

I recommend hittin’ the bar to everyone, man and woman alike—simply dedicate a few months to working out with your own body weight doing pull-ups, pushups, dips, sit-ups and sprints. It’s difficult to motivate yourself sometimes, but you don’t need that $50 a month gym to get that crazy prison-body status. You can contact me anytime and we’ll set up an appointment to develop a workout plan. I will charge you a couple boxes of Newports and a foot rub, and you will grow a bodacious bod. Lets DO this! Get money, crackuh!! Get that fuckin’ MONEY!

Quote: Spartacus – Shadow of the Gladiator

It was not merely that the leisure which enabled a citizen to devote himself to the Republic was dependent upon the forced labour of others. Slaves also satisfied a subtler, more baneful need. ‘Gain cannot be made without loss to someone else’: so every Roman took for granted.

All status was relative.

What value would freedom have in a world where everyone was free?

Even the poorest citizen could know himself to be immeasurably the superior of even the best-treated slave. Death was preferable to a life without liberty: so the entire history of the Republic had gloriously served to prove.

If a man permitted himself to be enslaved, then he thoroughly deserved his fate. Such was the harsh logic that prevented anyone from even questioning the cruelties the slaves suffered, let alone the legitimacy of slavery itself.

It was a logic that slaves accepted too. No one ever objected to the hierarchy of free and un-free, merely his own position within it. What the rebels wanted was not to destroy slavery as an institution, but to win the privileges of their former masters.

So it was that they would sometimes force their Roman prisoners to fight as gladiators: ‘Those who had once been the spectacle became the spectators.”

Only Spartacus himself appears to have fought for a genuine ideal.

Quote: The Winter Bulk Up Finale, VK edition | NexxtLevelUp

Lifting goes hand and hand with game. When you first learn game you want fast results, you want phone numbers and notches right away. When you first start working out you want to make gains in your lift weekly and to see drastic improvement in your body. The less used to getting women you are the more drastic you want your improvements in game to be. The smaller and weaker you are the bigger you want to see yourself become in the gym. But fast results in the gym and in picking up women are a young man’s game, rightfully so. But then you level off, the initial great leaps and bounds you’re making in both start to become far and few between. You’re not a rookie at both anymore, you’ve been initiated into the dark arts so guess what, now is when the real work starts. Now is when you realize you have to think long term, further out and ahead. You want to look good in your swimming trunks for summer 2013 guess what, you put in that work November/December 2012 its just that simple.

Quote: A Man’s Continent Way

A MAN’S CONTINENT WAY

1. Contain your SEED in your LOINS until you find a WOMAN who truly deserves to receive it.

2. Contain your PLANS in your MIND until you can ACT on them.

3. Contain your FEELINGS in your HEART until you are CALM.

4. Contain your STRENGTH in your LIMBS until you are called to a worthy CHALLENGE.

5. Contain your FEARS in your SOUL until your COURAGE overcomes them.

6. Contain your MONEY in your PURSE until you can buy something truly VALUABLE.

7. Contain your HUNGER in your STOMACH until you have cooked a manly FEAST.

8. Contain your WORDS in your MOUTH until everyone else has SPOKEN.

9. Contain your ANGER in your BELLY until you find your true ENEMY.

10. Contain your PLEASURE in your BODY until you are ALONE.

CONTAIN EVERYTHING UNTIL IT IS RIPE FOR HARVEST!!

A P.S. I didn’t send to Victor Pride

P.S.: Victor, what finance/entrepreneurship/management/marketing/economy/negotiation related sites and books could you recommend me and that have been useful for you? I’m at 3-4 year of law school but because of my past mistakes I have taken too much time studying at the university and I haven’t cared much about my grades so my job propects in law and juridic services are a little harder with the students loans lingering. Sometimes I think I don’t care anymore about following the typical lawyers path: study law then work for the State as a bureaucrat in a soul killing job inside an small office with the same coworkers whose only interest in life are the office gossips, celebrating the boss birthday and getting together on fridays to go drinking and start talking about their empty lifes, waiting for retirement.

I have never worked nor earned a single peso in my life, but I don’t want to be a parasite. I don’t want to keep depending on my parents. I don’t want to have a minimum wage job (salario mínimo) for a company nor the state. Even I have started to think I should follow the destiny of my legendary spartan homonym: keep training, join the army, have the fisical and strategic training, “fight against the FARC”, “glory” become an officer and have some direction in life. It’s the same as being a bureaucrat, only with an uniform.

But thats not what I really want. I have never worked at anything, nor earned a single peso. Yet I want to have an independent, self reliant living. Learn a profitable skill. Work. Make money. Maybe continue with my father’s office but make it a bigger lawyers buffet. Learn to manage the family’s assets and dedicate myself to real state. I could be a law professor (If I liked law school). Whatever it is, I want to learn and become self reliant.
