Ok... this will be a long one.. ^_^

An interesting precursor for the saying appeared in a Methodist church announcement in an Iowa newspaper from 1926. The word order and meaning were distinct, but the keywords were the same. In 1927 the same precursor was printed as a “Sermonogram” in an Ohio newspaper: "It is easier to fall for anything than to stand for something."

But this was not the only variation of this sentence... as many other do exist. For instance..

The earliest evidence of close match was published in the January 1945 issue of a journal called “Mental Hygiene”. At the time of publication World War II was still being fought. The adage appeared in an article by the medical doctor Gordon A. Eadie titled “The Over-All Mental-Health Needs of the Industrial Plant, with Special Reference to War Veterans”. Boldface has been added to excerpts:

"We are trying to show him not only what we are fighting against, but what we are fighting for. So many of these boys have only a very hazy idea of the real issues of the war. About all they see is - going back to the good old days. This is a dangerous state. If they don’t stand for something, they will fall for anything. They need to realize that we are fighting two wars—the war of arms and the war of ideas—that other war of which the war of arms is one phase."

Also.. at the start of legislative sessions in the U.S. Senate a daily prayer is typically offered by the Senate Chaplain. On April 18, 1947 Chaplain Peter Marshall spoke the following words:

"Our Father, we yearn for a better understanding of spiritual things, that we may know surely what Thy will is for us and for our Nation. Give to us clear vision that we may know where to stand and what to stand for—because unless we stand for something, we shall fall for anything."

In 1948 “The Rotarian” magazine printed an excerpt from a speech given at a Rotary club that referred to the statement by the Senate Chaplain though the phrasing presented differed from the original prayer: It is something like the present chaplain of the Senate said recently in one of his moving prayers at the recent special session, “Lord, help us to stand for something, because a man who stands for nothing will fall for anything.”

.. and so on.. and so on.. till the present days! The point here is : What do they mean by this?

Well.. you see.. it’s impossible to make everyone happy. Nor should you

If there’s one thing we’ve learned throughout college or just from life in general and interacting with every kind of person, it’s that you can’t make everyone happy. You can try all you want to make each and every person you meet and interact with happy, but at the end of the day all it really does is backfire on you.

All you can really do is make yourself happy, and hope both your happiness and your genuine strength of character are enough to touch the lives of others who will see you for you, and who will respect that version of you. Not for someone whose image is so confused that they are basically a combination of everyone else, not a whole version of who they actually are.

Don’t be the person who lives for everyone else, and in the process loses who they are. Yes, it’s honorable and admirable to try to make everyone around you happy. But what about your own happiness? Isn’t there something to say for that? And where does trying to make everyone else happy leave you and who does that leave you with? People who stick around only because you’re constantly and consistently making them happy by giving in to their wishes and helping them pursue their own self-interests and agenda? These aren’t the kind of people you want by your side to go through life with. They’re not making you a better person, they’re just taking away from the person you are, making you less of the person you are.

There’s always going to be those people who don’t agree with you, with what you say or with what you do. Those people who challenge you and your beliefs. And that’s okay. Because they’re there to do just that, to challenge you. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and their own judgments. How some people use these opinions and judgments is sometimes questionable. But that’s a whole different story.

Don’t define yourself based off anyone else but yourself... or... as on would say "If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything"...

What do you think?

As usual all sources are included within the download which makes this vector design easily editable for printing, engraving or just cutting.. however.. they do not need to be edited and can be used as is!

This design is sent in a generic size which should be resized according to the buyer requirements. As mentioned.. all sources are included..

This download includes several formats to choose from, such as ...
-> .PDF (Vector format that most plotters and printers can read)
-> .SVG (Virtually all printers and plotters do read this vector file format)
-> .EPS (Standard Encapsulated Post Script file.. should be compatible with almost 99.9% of the hardware)
-> .DWG (Autocad format - Some guys like this best.. so here it is)
-> .DXF (Also Autocad R14 standard file format)
-> .PLT (We personally like this format for cutting.. make sure you import at 1016 standard plotter units)
-> .PNG (With transparency support)
-> .JPG (Standard raster file format)
-> .BMP (Standard raster file format)
-> .TIF (Standard raster file format)
-> .AFDesign (Vector based format)
-> .PSD (Mixed file format)

Uncompressed file size (regarding all included file formats) : About 75 MB (mainly due to the high quality raster files which do allow high compression rates)

The presentation image has intentionally watermarked to prevent leeches/copies of the original design. So .. don't worry.. you will get fully and highly detailed images / vectors / designs / templates of this.. not low resolution!!

As said before this is a generic vector file (can either be printed, cut, engraved or all).. so you can resize it to what best meets your needs. No specific dimension is embedded on the file.. just resize it as per your best need.

Worked very well. I used the .svg file on my wife's cricut. Remember to set your width and height correctly for the New 3DS XL. My first run was huge and I had forgot to check the cut size.

Quick and easy! I love that I can now change it out when ever I feel like it without having to pay too much for a pre-made one somewhere else, and my pencil still fits in my holder.
