the purpose of life is not happiness, but rather heroic accomplishment. Every soul encompasses potential heroism, I thought. But every soul flickers for a few adolescent years with heroic visions, before resigning itself to mediocre values, before submitting to the lives of others, shrivelling & finally perishing. Why should I not be a soul, which no matter what the sacrifice required, attained heroism? Who could know? Perhaps I would be victorious in my pursuit of heroism. But then the victory itself would no longer have any meaning, but only the tireless striving toward it.

Weegee - Their first Murder 1940's

Ive always liked Weegee, infamous press photographer from the 30'40's
Always first on the scene, an ambulance chaser before his time, his prolific output gives a wonderful glimpse into street life in 1930's New York.
