Warrior Spirit

I am trying to cultivate in me all that which is the noble, the brave, the bold.

"Death is nothing. But to live defeated and without glory, that is to die every day.
-Napoleon I

"The basic difference between an ordinary man and a warrior is that a warrior takes everything as a challenge while an ordinary man takes everything as either a blessing or a curse."
-Don Juan, Tales of Power (via MML)

"There is no substitute for victory."
-Gen. Douglas MacArthur

"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
-Theodore Roosevelt, Citizenship in a Republic

"Until you stalk and overrun, you cannot devour anyone."
-Hobbes
-Bill Watterson, Attack of the Deranged Mutant Killer Monster Snow Goons
