Which do you honestly feel will get you farther in life? Brains or Brawn? I think that brains will get you farther. No matter how strong you are, physically, mental strength is often more important. I think that it takes a stronger person to use their brain to figure out a ituation than it does for a person to use their physical strnegth to push through.

The elephant is stronger but it is the mahout who is a man who gets it to do what he wishes. Very clearly, the reason man is at the top of the food chain is because of his superior brain. In society, the ones with the brains get the better jobs than those who only rely on their brawn except maybe for athletes who have to have both. Cheers!!

I would think too that the brains will get you farther, as you have to be smart enough to make it through situations that some one with the brawn may not think of and only go the route of strength and that doesnt always work... LOL good thought though for discussion!! happy mylotting.

I think brains would get you a lot further then overt power. We just saw a movie based upon the life of Grand Master Yip Man, and in the movie he comments that the difference between the two countries (when they were occupied) was that the others relied on brute force, where as Kung Fu relied on thought. I think that even Bruce Lee commented on this as well. And from a female point of view, my defending myself has nothing at all to do with my weight. I can bring a man larger then myself to the floor if I follow through on the knowledge I've learned.
