The basic difference between an ordinary
man and a warrior is that a warrior
takes everything as a challenge, while an
ordinary man takes everything as ablessing or a curse.
Whenever a warrior decides to do
something, he must go all the way, but
he must take responsibility for what he
does. No matter what he does, he must
know first why he is doing it, and then he
must proceed with his actions withouthaving doubts or remorse about them
The flaw with words is that they always make us feel
enlightened, but when we turn around to face the world they always
fail us and we end up facing the world as we always have, without
enlightenment. For this reason, a warrior seeks to act rather than
to talk, and to this effect, he gets a new description of the
world where talking is not that important, andwhere new acts have new reflections.
Warriors have an ulterior purpose for their acts
which has nothing to do with personal gain.The average man acts only if there is a chance for profit. Warriors act not for profit, but for the spirit.
