A man must live by his lights and do what little he can and do it as best he can. In this world goodness is destined to be defeated. But a man must go down fighting. That is the victory. To do anything less is to be less than a man.

Walker Percy (1916-1990) American author, philosopher
The Moviegoer, 1.5 (1961)
