My life might have been passed in ease and luxury; but I preferred glory to every enticement that wealth placed in my path.
"for nothing contributes so much to tranquillize the mind as a steady purpose — a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye."
1. Linguistic Intelligence: the capacity to use language to express what’s on your mind and to understand other people. Any kind of writer, orator, speaker, lawyer, or other person for whom language is an important stock in trade has great linguistic intelligence.
2. Logical/Mathematical Intelligence: the capacity to understand the underlying principles of some kind of causal system, the way a scientist or a logician does; or to manipulate numbers, quantities, and operations, the way a mathematician does.
3. Musical Rhythmic Intelligence: the capacity to think in music; to be able to hear patterns, recognize them, and perhaps manipulate them. People who have strong musical intelligence don’t just remember music easily, they can’t get it out of their minds, it’s so omnipresent.
4. Bodily/Kinesthetic Intelligence: the capacity to use your whole body or parts of your body (your hands, your fingers, your arms) to solve a problem, make something, or put on some kind of production. The most evident examples are people in athletics or the performing arts, particularly dancing or acting.
5. Spatial Intelligence: the ability to represent the spatial world internally in your mind — the way a sailor or airplane pilot navigates the large spatial world, or the way a chess player or sculptor represents a more circumscribed spatial world. Spatial intelligence can be used in the arts or in the sciences.
6. Naturalist Intelligence: the ability to discriminate among living things (plants, animals) and sensitivity to other features of the natural world (clouds, rock configurations). This ability was clearly of value in our evolutionary past as hunters, gatherers, and farmers; it continues to be central in such roles as botanist or chef.
7. Intrapersonal Intelligence: having an understanding of yourself; knowing who you are, what you can do, what you want to do, how you react to things, which things to avoid, and which things to gravitate toward. We are drawn to people who have a good understanding of themselves. They tend to know what they can and can’t do, and to know where to go if they need help.
8. Interpersonal Intelligence: the ability to understand other people. It’s an ability we all need, but is especially important for teachers, clinicians, salespersons, or politicians — anybody who deals with other people.
9. Existential Intelligence: the ability and proclivity to pose (and ponder) questions about life, death, and ultimate realities. —
Howard Gardner’s seminal Theory of Multiple Intelligences, originally published in 1983, which revolutionized psychology and education by offering a more dimensional conception of intelligence than the narrow measures traditional standardized tests had long applied. (via 4cry)

"You know it’s one of those things…it’s funny. You get a lot about guys who love to talk about metals..or ask questions about metals. No marine whose been in combat cares about that, they don’t mean sh*t..you know…you really…It means nothing to you…it comes with a lot of pain. If you were given a high level metal in combat that means… men were seriously hurt…if not killed. And you’d give anything to have those wounds given back…you’d give that metal back in a heart-beat."
There’s always a hidden message when she talks to you. A little bit of truth behind every ‘I don’t know.’ A little bit of curiosity behind every ‘I was just wondering.’ A little bit of emotion behind every ‘I don’t care.’ A little bit of pain behind every ‘It’s okay.’ A little bit of love behind every ‘I hate you.’ A little bit of ‘I need you’ behind every ‘Leave me alone.’ A little bit of ‘I miss you’ behind every ‘It’s been awhile.’ A little bit of jealousy behind every ‘She’s really pretty.’ A little bit of fear behind every ‘I love you.’
