    Searching for a definition of greatness
    Greatness is a concept that is heavily dependent on a person's perspective and biases. The term can be used to emphasize perceived superiority of a person or thing.

    Re: Searching for a definition of greatness

    Like Singer pretty much said: Greatness isn't any set term, its what each individual thinks it is in his own mind, and that is influenced by many variables.

    Some people on here might think the 07-08 Pats are in fact the greatest. Yet some people on here think they are the worst.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    Re: Searching for a definition of greatness

    Very interesting read my friend.

    "A great man is always willing to be little." -- Emerson
    I actually have seen this one quoted like this before....
    Wonder which one is wrong?
    Probably the second one.

    "A great man is always willing to be little and doesn't belittle those that aren't."

    I liked these two snippets.

    Maybe we can't define greatness, but we know it when we see it, hear it and watch it, right?
    I've seen alot of men/women do great things that very few people ever see.
    I sure know it when I see it.

    One of the few common themes in most definitions of greatness is the notion that it goes hand in hand with things like responsibility and honor and if those are lacking so too must be the presence of greatness. The idea of true greatness is a measure of spirit not fame, of contribution, not promotion.
    Honor Courage Commitment.
    By these 3 words shall we live and be measured by.
    :
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
