“The nation that makes a great distinction between its scholars and its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards, and its fighting done by fools.”
As we daily strive towards excellence, we believe there are three requisite elements requiring our direct attention, and they require daily forging to temper our character and reach our God given potential. As we reach this potential, our community grows stronger, and our society becomes healthier and more resilient.
Thucydides touches on two of these elements: knowledge and physical prowess. However, we believe in a third element, without which the other two are futile.
† This third element is God †
He provides purpose and morality; He is the source of the other two elements
‘The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge’
‘God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them’
In working to reach this potential, our community grows stronger; And our society becomes healthier & more resilient.
This is why we have expanded upon Thucydides quote to illustrate the principles of our foundation.
