“I do not choose to be a common man, it is my right to be uncommon … if I can, I seek opportunity … not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen. Humbled and dulled by having the State look after me. I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build. To fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole; I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence, nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master, nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect. Proud and unafraid; to think and act for myself, to enjoy the benefit of my creations, and to face the world boldly and say: this, with God’s help, I have done; all this is what it means to be an entrepreneur.” ~ Dean Alfange
