For The Record: Week 7

For the record…

Last week, the Vols were soundly beaten by the Number One LSU Tigers. This week, the Vols will be soundly beaten again, this time by the Number Two Alabama Crimson Tide. If the predicted (inevitable) comes true under the lights Saturday night in Tuscaloosa, the biggest thing to guard against is despondency – the theme of this week’s For the Record…


Tuscaloosa is no place for this on Saturday.

Aim at perfection in everything, though in most things it is unattainable. However, they who aim at it, and persevere, will come much nearer to it than those whose laziness and despondency make them give it up as unattainable. – Lord Chesterfield

Our despondent moods are, for the most part, moods of ingratitude.– Anonymous

How many feasible projects have miscarried through despondency, and been strangled in their birth by a cowardly imagination. – Jeremy Collier

Put the key of despair into the lock of apathy. Turn the knob of mediocrity slowly and open the gates of despondency – welcome to a day in the average office. – David Brent

Some persons depress their own minds, despond at the first difficulty, and conclude that making any progress in knowledge, further than serves their ordinary business, is above their capacity.– John Locke

Life is a warfare; and he who easily desponds deserts a double duty—he betrays the noblest property of man, which is dauntless resolution; and he rejects the providence of that all-gracious Being who guides and rules the universe. – Jane Porter
