Three Cheers for the Red Fox
For those of you who haven't been paying attention, here's a link:
The Marist school motto is "cum optimus litigare," which literally translates, "to struggle with the best." In that translation, though, it sounds like Marist is on the wrong side.
I've been assured that a better translation would be "to struggle alongside the best."
But in their first two tournament games, Marist has been very much the underdog against teams with a fiercer reputation than anybody from the unassuming Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference has ever had. Contra optimus litigare ... and a little veni, vidi, vici, to boot!
Knowledge is warranted belief -- it is the body of belief that we build up because, while living in this world, we've developed good reasons for believing it. What we know, then, is what works -- and it is, necessarily, what has worked for us, each of us individually, as a first approximation.
