Tess and friend after completing a Tough Mudder.
"And this I believe:
that the free, exploring mind of the individual is the most valuable thing in the world.
And this I would fight for:
the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected.
And this I must fight against:
any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual.
This what I am and what I am about."

East of Eden
John Steinbeck
