This weeks mancrushmonday is John Paul Jones. He was a naval commander in the American Revolution. This dude was a rebel – he had run ins with the law, and was accused of piracy, and being too harsh with his crew. He led the American Navy to victory – and then went on to serve in the Russian Navy.
Jones is credited with some of the wisest quotes I’ve heard. Check these out.
If fear is cultivated it will become stronger, if faith is cultivated it will achieve mastery.
It seems to be a law of nature, inflexible and inexorable, that those who will not risk cannot win.
I wish to have no connection with any ship that does not sail fast; for I intend to go in harm’s way.
And his most well known quote:
I have not yet begun to fight!
It’s that ferocity and strength that makes John Paul Jones this week’s, Man Crush Monday
