A Low Point

"Since you have chosen to elect a man with a timber toe to succeed me, you may all go to hell and I will go to Texas." - Davy Crockett

And another bit from the life of the Honorable congressman from Tennessee. Right before he left for Texas, he was defeated in a re-election bid by a one legged lawyer with a peg leg, and this quote is what is said to have been his response to the good people of Tennessee.

I suppose it sometimes takes us reaching a low point before we get up the gumption to make that life-altering change that we have been thinking about for years.

On the other hand, sometimes we can make dumb decisions on the spur of the moment simply because we are unhappy about something.

Which do you suppose Davy did?

And pictured above is Billy Bob Thornton's portrayal of the man himself in the 2004 film, The Alamo.
