"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.”
Mahatma Gandhi quotes


i've simply met too many outstanding athletes who cave--and conversely too many
stubbornly agro types who've really come out on top under pressure [who were otherwise
quite average in fitness, etc...].

Quote :
But what do you expect? Hey, come on, this is a warlike country. We come from that northern European, basically the northern European genes, the blue eyes. Those blue eyes. Boy everybody in the world learned real quick, didn’t they? When those blue eyes sail out of the north, you better nail everything down motherfucker. Nail it down, strap it down, or they’ll grab it. If they can’t take it home, they’ll burn it. If they can’t burn it, they’ll fuck it.

Ah, that's a good one. Einstein had a lot of golden nuggets in the stuff he said.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what".

"My optimism wears heavy boots and is loud."

"Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength, move on. "

"Why do you think the old stories tell of men who set out on great journeys to impress the gods? Because trying to impress people just isn't worth the time and effort."

and finally...

"The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told that you’re a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds."

Henry Rollins.

A couple more from Mr.Rollins...

“I don't want to know. I don't need it. I don't want the information that millions of people have. I don't want to be fed these boring facts and figures. Then you'll become one of the masses. I'd rather starve my mind a bit and have to search out nutrition in stranger places.”


...and one that holds a special significance for me,which i read several years ago...bringing on one of those "light bulb moments"

“You would think that pot had some kind of power; I mean come on, it's a plant, not a reason for living. Controlled by a plant, how hilarious. A plant! A fucking plant!”

Quote :
but only allow this dingleberry tidbit of your blossoming personality to flower when the conditions finally give you permission. someone is threatening you or a loved one, thank them--appologize before hand, and let one hand replace the other in a flurry of hits with no end in sight. let your hands block out the sun. make their lives flash before their eyes. nail them and savor every moment.'
