"You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one."
James A. Froude
"Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win."
"Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat."
"The vision of a champion is someone who is bent over, drenched in sweat, at the point of exhaustion when no one else is watching."
"Adversity causes some men to break; others to break records."
"Gentlemen, welcome. You honor our island. I look forward to a tournament of truly epic proportions. We are unique, gentlemen, in that we create ourselves. Through long years of rigorous training, sacrifice, denial, pain, we forge our bodies in the fire of our will. But tonight, let us celebrate. Gentlemen, you have our gratitude."
Han, Enter The Dragon
