Struggle is the father of all things. It is not by the principles of humanity that man lives or is able to preserve himself above the animal world, but solely by means of the most brutal struggle. If you do not fight, life will never be won.

I hate to upsurp alismouha's authority over this contest, but I also hate for people to think that I'm just dragging around on picking a topic. If anyone wants to know, I chose the topic "politics". It kinda goes along with our last topic, don't ya think? Anyway, I'll delete this post once alismouha comes in and puts up his post with the topic on it. Oh, and my friend, lydianm's brother, runinghorse, asked me to put the link to the Abraham Lincoln quotes pick here while I was doing this, so here it is: link

@courtney7488: That's fine. It'll just give people more time to submit quotes for the music topic. I'll create my pick when yours ends. =)

It does seem as if this contest has gone sideways since alismouha deserted us. =) =) He doesn't remind us when we're supposed to create our stuff anymore. =)

so, if there's anyone else here willing to keep the Contest alive, the new topic is: Fear.
