I've been trying to collect a few sayings and quotes related to self defense, training, military, etc. Here are a few of my fav's: "If you quit, you lose. If you lose, you die"*** If you can talk about it, you won.*** Pain is just weakness leaving the body Lets Roll !! Pain is temporary, death is permanent.*** "The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in the street." Are you gonna bark all day little doggie, or are you gonna bite? No more victims If you resemble food, you will be eaten! (Clint Smith) I think. "When the wolves can't tell the sheep from the lions, the whole flock is safer."*** Always have a pilot light burning inside ready to explode when needed "Fights are NOT contests, they are about survival. Cheat, win, and go home alive." Unknown Do or do not. There is no try. ** ***"Better to be a tiger for a day than a sheep for a lifetime." ~ Chinese Proverb "Action always beats re-action." "Dont hit at all, if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft." Theodore Roosevelt "Just because I walk a different path than you doesn't mean I am lost" Anyone care to contribute more? I actually have a list of a few pages worth, but I'd like to keep it going. Who's first??
