Defy Reason

Note: the colors on the finished shirt are less saturated than on display.

See full description & specifications

his is a badge of achievement that signifies one has gone beyond the confines of convention and risk aversion of the spectator into the realm of the arena where the full spectrum of life is experienced.

It is best described in Teddy Roosevelt's Speech at the Sorbonne on April 22, 1910

“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at best knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

Defy Reason is an invitation to dare greatly.

Note: option 1 lets you choose either a mug or a t-shirt, and Option 2 enables you to select other things like the color of the shirt or the size of the face. The default color for the T-shirts is green, I suggest a lighter color for the best results.
