Oswald Spengler: “We are born into this time”   Leave a comment


This is from the blog Dover Beach:

“We are born into this time and must bravely follow the path to the destined end. There is no other way. Our duty is to hold on to the lost position, without hope, without rescue, like that Roman soldier whose bones were found in front of a door in Pompeii, who, during the eruption of Vesuvius, died at his post because they forgot to relieve him. That is greatness. That is what it means to be a thoroughbred. The honorable end is the one thing that cannot be taken from a man.”

–Oswald Spengler


Ephesians 6: 13:  “Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.”

Matthew 24: 13:  “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”
