Ya gotta know it didn't amount to much work on my part, I just punched in "pirate quotes" and that was one of the first ones to pop up.

Here's another by some long dead pirate. Let me state emphatically this is not how I view life, but, it is interesting.

Quote:
"In honest work, the food is bad, the wages are low and the work is hard. In piracy, there is plenty of loot, it's fun and easy and we are free and powerful. Who, when presented with this choice, would not choose piracy? The worst that can happen is you can be hanged. No, a merry life and a short one shall be my motto."

I'm not so sure that isn't the same quote, just translated differently. (shrug) who knows... I'll tell you one thing, the pirate life those guys lived a couple of centuries ago has a definite allure to it. Such a different way of living a life compared to the air conditioned lives we live now huh? I'm sure it was a hard life when you consider the human condition, but it also must have been a great adventure and royal good time on the high seas. Beautiful thought isn't it, living free on the seas, taking care of business and just being about as independent as you could possibly be..... Well freedom takes many forms. These days our hearts are still free, still longing for that little bit of pirate we all have in us, but we're so stifled by the crap our so-called leaders have saddled us with. I could go on all night about that but I won't. Because we all deal with it in our own ways, we have to. That's what life in America is now, stifled bull****.... It's truly sad the BS we have to deal with now.

i like the spirit of those types of men. the pirates, the mountainmen, the trappers, the men who lived day to day and by their own standards. not strapped by society or civilization. but free to be free. a hard and harsh life in many ways, but rewards that many would never know. the simple beauty of nature and landscapes not populated by man.
