The Quitter
Robert W. Service

When you're lost in the Wild, and you're scared as a child,
And Death looks you bang in the eye,
And you're sore as a boil, it’s according to Hoyle
To cock your revolver and . . . die.
But the Code of a Man says: "Fight all you can,"
And self-dissolution is barred.
In hunger and woe, oh, it’s easy to blow . . .
It’s the hell-served-for-breakfast that’s hard. |

"You're sick of the game!" Well, now that’s a shame.
You're young and you're brave and you're bright.
"You've had a raw deal!" I know — but don't squeal,
Buck up, do your damnedest, and fight.
It’s the plugging away that will win you the day,
So don't be a piker, old pard!
Just draw on your grit, it’s so easy to quit.
It’s the keeping-your chin-up that’s hard. |

It’s easy to cry that you're beaten — and die;
It’s easy to crawfish and crawl;
But to fight and to fight when hope’s out of sight —
Why that’s the best game of them all!
And though you come out of each gruelling bout,
All broken and battered and scarred,
Just have one more try — it’s dead easy to die,
It’s the keeping-on-living that’s hard. |


Carry on!Robert W. Service |

It’s easy to fight when everything’s right,
And you're mad with the thrill and the glory;
It’s easy to cheer when victory’s near,
And wallow in fields that are gory.
It’s a different song when everything’s wrong.
When you're feeling infernally mortal;
When it’s ten against one, and hope there is none,
Buck up, little soldier, and chortle; |
Carry on! Carry on!
There isn't much punch in your blow.
You're glaring and staring and hitting out blind;
You're muddy and bloody, but never you mind.
Carry on! Carry on!
You haven't the ghost of a show.
It’s looking like death, but while you've a breath,
Carry on, my son! Carry on! |
And so in the strife of the battle of life
It’s easy…...

Right to Carry

...U.S. citizens not possessing a criminal record shall be permitted to carry a concealed weapon. COMM/215: Essentials of College Writing U.S. citizens not possessing a criminal record shall be permitted to carry a concealed weapon. U.S. citizens carrying a concealed weapon may prevent acts of violence to other citizens, are less likely to become victims of criminal violence, and prevent acts of terrorism. Even though concealed weapons are reported to cause accidental deaths and injuries, U.S. citizens not possessing a criminal record shall be permitted to carry a concealed weapon because may prevent acts of violence to other citizens and less likely to become victims of criminal violence. Concealed weapons are reported to cause accidental deaths and injuries. Americans own an estimated 270 million firearms – approximately 90 guns for every 100 people. In 2007, guns were the cause of the unintentional deaths of 613 people. From 2001 through 2007, more than 4,900 people in the United States died from unintentional shootings. More than 1,750 victims of unintentional shootings between 2001 and 2007 were under 25. In comparison, motor vehicle accidents across the United States have caused 42,031 deaths in 2008, that is 13.9 deaths per 100,000 people and yet continue to license thousands of citizens every day in this country. Another interesting fact about concealed weapons causing accidental deaths and injuries is medical mistakes kill 400,000 people per......

Concealed Carry on Campus

...Concealed Carry on Campus: Yea or Nay? 1 Concealed Carry on Campus: Yea or Nay? Toni Struve COM/155 University Composition and Communication I May 6, 2012 Kathleen Zurich   Concealed Carry on Campus: Yea or Nay? 2 Abstract This essay debates the pros and cons of allowing concealed carry weapons on campuses. Both sides have relevant information that supports their point of view. I have presented data from both sides of this issue and leave it to the reader to decide which argument they will support.   Concealed Carry on Campus: Yea or Nay? 3 In the war over guns, the first casualty was the truth (Kleck, 2009). Could the results of the tragedies at Columbine, Virginia Tech, and the private college in California been lessened if concealed weapons were permitted on campuses? Studies have been conducted, but there have been no definitive results. Each side of this question can quote statistics and studies that will prove their point of view. There is no absolute answer to this question, but many people believe that the outcome may have been much different if concealed weapons were present on campus. As with every issue of this magnitude, there are two sides to this question. The debate about whether to allow concealed weapons on campus raises questions of personal safety, legality and are gun-free zones really safer. Students for Concealed Carry is a nationwide organization made up of over 43,000 students,......

Conceal Carry

...[Type the company name] | Concealed Carry Controversy | [Type the document subtitle] | | Steven Kilburg | EN 104-8F | rough draft | As of November 1, 2011 a new law went into effect in the State of Wisconsin. It is the concealed carry law. There are people on both sides for or against this new law. The few things about this law that bothers this writer is the absence of proper training prior to obtaining a permit; the difference in the new law compared to hunter safety education that is required for all hunters born after January 1, 1973, and certain loopholes in the law that make it harder to be considered a real conceal carry law. According to the law, a person is to complete a firearms safety course conducted by a certified firearms instructor. However, the law does not specify what constitutes a safety course; someone could sit through an online training course, including courses not designed for concealed carry purposes. (Wisconsin's New Carrying Concealed Weapon Law Wuestions and Answers, 2011) These permitted people don’t even have to fire their weapon as a part of their training. This is unsatisfactory to many people; just the thought alone that people can get a permit to carry a firearm without even knowing how to use the weapon is mind-blowing. I would feel safer with my son, who is ten, but has fired and understands gun safety than I would with an adult who has never fired or received my belief in proper training. This law needs to be......

Carry Trade - Global Finance

...Carry Trade INTB 693W – Global Finance A carry trade is a strategy in which an investor borrows money at a low interest rate in order to invest in an asset that is likely to provide a higher return. This strategy is very common in the foreign exchange market. For example, in the period up to 2007 many investors borrowed in Japanese yen or Swiss francs, taking advantage of very low interest rates in Japan and Switzerland, and used the money to take long positions in currencies backed by high interest rates, such as the Australian and New Zealand dollars and South African rand. Historically, carry trade always resulted in excess returns on an average, while being occasionally subjected to large downside risk. In the past few years, the profitability of the traditional currency carry trades has declined as the central banks of major developed countries have pursued quantitative easing policies that are designed to keep interest rates low. Opportunities for currency carry trades do, however, continue to exist in the emerging markets. In the carry trade, there are three important sources of risk. Some economists believe that the high interest rates paid on emerging market currencies could be due to hidden disastrous events that had not yet occurred. Another type of risk relates to contagious crises in emerging markets. Because many of the players in the carry trade are present in all of the emerging market currencies, a crisis in one currency can carry over and cause......

Carry Trade

...the trend of carry trade in international exchange market, the yen and the dollar were a main currency of carry trade during the last decade. The yen carry trade dominated international finance between 2003 and 2007. However, this trend was ended by the financial crisis. The dollar carry trade dominated international finance between 2009 and 2012. Also, this trend was ended by the yen's downturn starting in November 2012. It seemed that party in carry trade was over. But, the euro can be a main currency of carry trade today. There are two reasons for this trend. First, the euro can be weakened by the quantitative easing of Europe central bank. The ECB decided to provide liquidity to the market through the acquisition of the assets of each month € 60 billion from March. From this decision, the euro reacted quickly and fell. Second, political instability in Greece also contributed to the weak euro. Greek general election result grows concerned about the recurrence of the Greek debt crisis, and this encouraged the weak euro. So, we think that the carry trade using the euro will become active and this trend is a good opportunity for carry trade in FX market. In this situation, we recommend long dollar and the short euro position. US interest rates are relatively high as compared to other developed countries. Furthermore, the US dollar has remained strong through improved trade and fiscal deficits recently. So, the dollar will be a good destination of the euro carry trade....

Open Carry Gun Laws

...Open Carry Gun Laws By Ryan Hanson In this research paper we will attempt to answer the question, what is “OPEN CARRY”? And the laws and regulations that pertain to open carry, as well as what they mean to you should you decide to purchase a firearm or if you already own one. Open carry is defined as the practice of openly carrying a fire arm on one’s person in public, many people living in the United States already do and this also scares many others. There are a few questions that come to mind when discussing open carry laws such as Who? What? Where? When? Why? And How? When talking about open carry laws, you have to think of who around you that you may or may not know owns firearms? In most states anyone 18 or older may purchase shotguns, and you must be 21 to purchase high powered rifles and pistols or revolvers and all it takes is a simple background check and you’re in and out the door in 20 minutes or less although many people prefer private sales to avoid the background check process and this arises some concern, what kind of people are out buying guns? With an estimated 300 million privately owned guns in the U.S. it’s safe to say that most of the people you know own or at one time or another have owned a firearm. That being said you have to kind of think to yourself with all of the burglaries and such that go on in our country how many of those 300 million firearms are out on the streets in the hands of criminals and that’s scary if you think about the......

Why We Carry Weapons

...Why do people carry Weapons? Reynaldo L. Bautista ENG/147 February 19, 2015 Kathy Kraus Why do people carry Weapons? Have you ever wondered why humans carry and use weapons? Since Homo sapiens became earth's dominant species, they have built a variety of tools. One of those tools are weapons, which in modern times have evolved to a gun. Guns are today's tool of choice for independent people who choose to own a gun and use it responsibly, if necessary, in the world. Typically, in the United States people carry weapons for two reasons; self-defense and as a constitutional right to bear arms. In addition to these reasons, through new research, many scientists claim, that gun ownership may be linked to a genetic factor. The United States Supreme Court has ruled several times that police officers do not have a legal responsibility to safeguard citizens from violent crime (Greenhouse, 2005). The Supreme Court ruling only recognizes an individual's right to self preservation. This ruling is a factor influencing more states to permit their citizens to carry their weapons visible or concealed for self defense. While opponents of carrying guns argue that citizens are safer without weapons there are many who disagree. According to Smith (2001), "a 2001 study by the National Opinion Research Center, 59% of people who carry a gun outside the home do so because it makes them feel safer.” (Gun Carry Behaviors and Characteristics). Adversaries of legally carrying a......

Open Carry

...Assignment 2 Final Draft Syrian Refugees Terrorist attacks have put fear among many American’s regarding the entry of Syrian refugees in the United States. Concerns exist that, along with the refugees, members of the Islamic State and other terrorist organizations might enter the country and carry out attacks against the United States. Playing it safe is what many Americans seem to see as a paramount value today. The American backlash against refugees is based largely on the fear that a Paris-style attack could be replicated in America if the United States began to shoulder its burden of the refugee crisis. Back in November 2015, more than half of the nation’s governor’s opposed letting Syrian refugees into their states, although the final say on the immigration issue will fall into the hands of the federal government. The image is of a protest held in Olympia, Washington, held on November 20, 2015, of people who were gathering to protest against the United States’ acceptance of Syrian refugees. I found this photo while on the website The photo was taken by David Ryder. The African American woman is what pops out the most in this photo. Her look is very stern, serious and hard. The sign reads “Why put us in danger.” I believe she a great depth of this ongoing issue along with many other Americans. I believe ethos is taking place in the photo because they crowd is showing their emotions......

New Campus Carry Laws

...Abstract Universities and College campus are a hot topic because every year they attract and house hundreds of thousands of not always quite mature teens and young adults. The perception is that the Campus Carry Law will not be very effective and could quite possibly back fire on innocent faculty and student body members, victimizing anyone who may come in contact with one of these radically violent individuals intent on harming people. (2015) Arrigo Bruce and Acheson Austin Contemporary Justice Review, Concealed carry bans and the America college Campus. Statistically numbers are down when looking back over the past couple decades. Since 1990 there have been 143 school shooting related instances and over 450 deaths and injuries. (2006) Norton Elia and Jennifer Ansier, USA Today, Behind the Bloodshed. The very fact any person could possibly be murdered or injured by another person at any moment in America has always been known and terrifies the majority of citizens. Like many Americans I have to ask, what we can do as a Nation, one unit, to better insure the public safety of every individual. To understand this problem we must go to the root. The American System and its five sets of institutions which ultimately control American way of life. The five institutions are legal, political, economic, educational and sociocultural. All of which too often combine to leave our efforts short of progression. Introduction The issue with gun laws and the legal system have to do with......

Carry Nation

...Carry Nation or Carrie Nation was a strong believer in doing what was best for the people of America and would try to help thought otherwise. Nation's past was very influential what she did and why she did it. Nation got married in 1867 to Charles Gloyd, a physician. Gloyd had a drinking problem and was a very heavy drinker. When the couple had a child named Charlien who was born with a condition and Nation blamed the condition on Gloyd's drinking problem. Soon after Carry Nation left Gloyd and became a teacher. Years later in 1877 she remarried to a man named David Nation. David and Carry moved to Texas where she would teach Sunday school. There she mainly spoke out about the evils of drinking, but would also talk about tobacco and women's rights and would known as “Mother Nation”. Nation started to see her life as if she was a profit. She started noticing more things that would lead her to that conclusion as if God was directing her life. “She began to experience visions and a sense of divine protection. The latter seemed to be confirmed when her rooming house was left untouched by a town fire in 1889. She even believed her name, Carry A. Nation, was foreordained.” (Social Issues). Moreover Carry Nation's past was her main influence for starting her ideals and well the main reason for her prohibition reform. Carry A. Nation, believed that drinking was the cause of many problems in American society during the time of the late 1800s. She would try to help those in need no......

The Intangibes They Carries

...The Intangibles they carried Every person has items one needs to carry but they are incomparable to that of a soldier. Tim O’Brien emphasizes this in his short story, “The Things They Carried” as he takes on the narrative role explaining what he observed of the soldiers he once fought alongside. Chronicling both the intensities and tragedies of war he tells the stories of fellow soldiers and reveals truths of war at the same time. In precise detail and intentional metaphorical language O’Brien describes what it is that each soldier carries and how that relates to them as an individual. While some are intangible, such as guilt and fear, others are specific physical objects, including matches and morphine. Simultaneously, he frames the struggles not only of each man but of the war in general and the shame and emotion involved. It is what he does not directly say but rather implies with his descriptions of each soldier that bring the deeper message to the surface. The detail and element of characterization Tim O’Brien uses to describe each soldier in “The things they carried” reveals the deeper meaning that the emotional baggage each soldier carries with them weighs upon them more heavily than the physical items, essentially interfering with their duties of war. Jimmy Cross, the main character O’Brien highlights, appears to carry the most emotional baggage with him as the story opens explaining how he carries “the letters from a girl named Martha (274)”. The letters are not...

Carry Trade

...ECOn3104- Assignment 1 Carry Trade: Impacts Abroad INTTRODUCTION The carry trade phenomena refers to the process whereby an investor borrows money in a relatively low interest rate currency (funding currency) and effectively invests in a high interest rate currency by converting funds into the high interest currency and lending the amount to yield a higher return. We can show how the European Central Bank (ECB) to permanently increase the money supply will have a direct affect on the domestic Australian economy. This form of carry trade behavior will cause instability in the domestic exchange rate to which the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) can respond with an appropriate policy. BODY: * European Central Bank action To understand the full extent of the carry trade, we must appreciate the operations of the ECB in managing the money supply and effectively stimulating necessary changes to proceed with a carry trade strategy. The ECB having direct control of the money supply enables them to increase the money supply through looser monetary policy, for example. This is seen graphically in Figure 1 of appendix A [krugman, Obstfeld & Melitz, 2012]. From the graph we can see the Australian money market is initially at equilibrium at point 1 and the foreign exchange market at 1’, equating to an exchange rate of E$/€1. Now with the ECB action we illustrate the increase in money supply by a shift to the left of the expected Euro interest rate. Foreign......

My Case for Conceal and Carry

...My Case for Conceal and Carry In the United States and elsewhere, there are a variety of laws surrounding if a person can carry a firearm on their person in public. “Concealed carrying” is the most common form. Concealed carrying involves concealing a firearm from public view on the body, usually underneath a coat, at the lower back, hip, leg, or on one side of the rib cage. Carrying a concealed handgun in public is permitted for non-law enforcement officials in 49 states as of July 13, 2011, although regulations differ widely by state. Illinois and Washington, DC (my hometown, more in this later) do not allow concealed carry except by active and retired law enforcement officers. I believe that all citizens that have been trained have gone through background checks and properly trained in firearm use should be able to conceal and carry. Gun control advocates staunchly disagree with the idea of “conceal and carry.” They argue that increased gun ownership leads to more gun crime and unintended gun injuries. They contend that concealed firearms increase the chances of arguments becoming lethal, and that society would be safer with fewer guns on the street not more. Individuals against conceal and carry believe that concealed handguns are not an effective form of self-defense. A study by the American Journal of Public Health by Charles Branas, PhD., found that someone carrying a gun for self-defense was 4.5 times more likely to be shot during an assault than an......
