Eclecticism is a kind of mixed style in the fine arts: "the borrowing of a variety of styles from different sources and combining them" (Hume 1998). Significantly, Eclecticism hardly ever constituted a specific style in art: it is characterized by the fact that it was not a particular style. In general, the term describes the combination in a single work of a variety of influences — mainly of elements from different historical styles in architecture, painting, and the graphic and decorative arts.

Many people get so wrapped up in the money and fame of being a professional athlete. Glen Coffee was not one of those people, in fact the 25 year old running back retired from the SanFranciso 49ERS to pursue a higher calling. Acts like this are rare and should definitely be applauded because it takes great strength to make it to NFL and even more strength to leave it all behind for a different purpose!
