    Just thought i'll share some interesting quotes i read... here some i really liked... feel free to add any others you may have. :woo:
    "Pain is weakness leaving the body." — Unknown

    "Try Not . . . DO or DO NOT . . . There is no try . . . " — Yoda ("Star Wars")

    Black Belt — A white belt that never quit!" — Unknown

    "Power is created in the mind, Rooted in the feet, developed in the legs, directed by the hips, transferred through the torso, focused in the feet or hands and felt in the spirit." — C. J. Doyle

    "If training is hard, then winning will be easy, but if training is easy, then winning will be hard." — Norman Harris

    "Martial Arts should be a way of life, not a job, hobby, sport, but a part of you and the way you live your life." — Frank Gutting

    "The true value of the martial arts is not in 100 victories but in the perfection of the character of the students." — Gichin Funakoshi

    "To win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the highest skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the highest skill."— Sun-Tsu

    My favourite:

    If You Think You Are Beaten

    If you think you are beaten, you are.
    If you think you dare not, you don't.
    If you'd like to win but think you can't,
    It's almost certain you won't.
    Life's battles don't always go
    To the stronger or faster man,
    But sooner or later, the man who wins
    Is the man who thinks he can.

    A black belt only covers two inches of your ass, the rest is up to you.

    All of the above are good, but there's one I try and live by :

    NaughtyKnight Has yellow fever!

    Life should not be measured by the amount of breaths you take, but rather by the moments that take your breath away.

    I wanted to die in my sleep like my granddad, not kicking and screaming like the passanger in his car. :D

    "Learn the ways to preserve rather than destroy. Avoid rather than check; check rather than hurt; hurt rather than maim, maim rather than kill; for all life is precious, nor can any be replaced."
