Train Hard - Stay Humble
From a surfer's t-shirt of the eighties:
"One day the storm will pass,
the wind will calm and the waves will be gone,
and all the rides and wipe-outs will be forgotten...
But you will always remember the people."
“Before I learned the art, a punch was just a punch, and a kick, just a kick.
After I learned the art, a punch was no longer a punch, a kick, no longer a kick.
Now that I understand the art, a punch is just a punch and a kick is just a kick.”
"I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.
The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.’"
Nelson Mandela (1918 – 2013, R.I.P.)
