If water derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind! The mind of the sage, being in repose, becomes the mirror of the universe, the speculum of all creation.

About David D. "Deacon" Jones

David D.

David D. "Deacon" Jones

David D. "Deacon" Jones (born December 9, 1938) nicknamed "Secretary of Defense" is a former professional football player and actor. Born in Eatonville, Florida, Jones is considered to be one of the greatest defensive ends of all time. Jones specialized in quarterback sacks, a term attributed to him. An extremely durable player, Jones missed only six games of a possible 196 regular-season encounters in his 14 NFL seasons. He is also noted for perfecting the notorious "head slap" in defensive line play, a tactic that was shortly made illegal in pro football.

He claims that he accumulated 173.5 sacks over his career, which, if true, would be third on the all-time sack list.
