True wisdom is less presuming than folly. The wise man doubteth often, and changeth his mind; the fool is obstinate, and doubteth not; he knoweth all things but his own ignorance.

"don't forsake the commandments of god to keep those of man"
wisdom of the desert fathers
-thomas merton (paraphrased)

context: one father prepared food for a visitor when he was supposed to be fasting.
this was his response to a harsh critic.

I think this is from a sambo gym but i cant be sure, but regardless it does the business.



Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.

Talent will not: Nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.

Genius will not: Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.

Education will not: The world is full of educated derelicts.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

Don't know who said this or if I've mangled it to some extent, but the gist is right:

"The world is a comedy to those that think, and a tragedy to those that feel"

Roadkill,
i've heard that Winston Churchill said another hysterical thing to
some toffy nosed person--or other, who had just accused him of
being drunk:

"madam, you are ugly...and in the morning i'll be sober"

sunny

"And this is the trial:
They shall play with such weapons as they profess to teach withal,
three bouts apiece with three of the best English masters of defence &
three bouts apiece with three unskillful valiant men, and three bouts apiece
with three resolute men half drunk. Then if they can defend themselves
against these masters of defence, and hurt, and go free from the rest,
then are they be honored, cherished, and allowed for perfect good teachers,
and what countrymen soever they be. But if any of these they take fail,
then they are imperfect in their profession, their fight is false, &
they are false teachers, deceivers and murderers, and to be punished accordingly,
yet no worse punishment unto them I wish, than such as in their trial they
shall find".

George Silver. Paradoxes of Defence. London. 1599

"and therein the pubbe I espied a foppish Italian rapier instructor, his camp demeanour and long thin pointy weapon offended my valiant Englishe Eye and so I smote him with my tankard using the famed Plowmans Fist of Gloucester- I coldcocked his Skull and he fell to the floor wherin I estomped him until he wept like a little girl... then I stabbed him with a quill in his necke "

Just read your Silver/Pesci quote again ...Glorious! lol!

Interesting thought on Asymmetry:

"The idea of balance is enough to convince us that balanced positions with best play on either side must lead again and again to balanced positions.
Only after the balance of the positions has been disturbed, so that one player holds an uncompensated advantage, may this player attack with intent to win".
Emmanuel Lasker - Lasker's Manual of Chess

"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight,
even though the ruler forbid it;
if fighting will not result in victory,
then you must not fight,
even at the reler's bidding."

"To fight is a radical instinct; if men have nothing else to fight over
they will fight over words, fancies, or women, or they dislike each other's
looks, or because they have met walking in other directions."

upon reading a book about an american gangster in history,
a subject my old TKD instructor was expert in, he wrote a book
review thus:

"Big words with no content or accuracy...i felt as though i'd been raped by a
thesaurus." to paraphrase

Dr. Jose Alvin Jones
Navy Diver and high ranking TKD teacher

"...What would happen if a year-old baby fell from a fourth-floor window onto the head of a burly truck driver, standing on the sidewalk? It's practically certain that the truckman would be knocked unconscious. He might die of brain concussion or a broken neck. Even an innocent little baby can become a dangerous missile WHEN ITS BODY-WEIGHT IS SET INTO FAST MOTION..." - Jack Dempsey

Hmm... Improvised weapons. You know, I read a ninjutsu book once that recommended cats as improvised weapons.

lol!

PostSubject: From the great Temüjin   Wed May 06, 2009 10:12 am

First post here guys, this is my favourite quote...

' Oh people, know that you have committed great sins. If you ask me what proof I have for these words, I say it is because I am the punishment of god. If you had not committed great sins, God would not have sent a punishment like me!'.

Genghis Kahn, Bukhara 1220

I also see quotes from Silver, as Rich knows I teach how to use historical weapons, Silver was a top bloke, with an almost insane dislike for Italians... :-)
