Know the enemy and know yourself.
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
Nobody can hurt me without my permission.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.
Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.
Older men declare war. But it is the youth that must fight and die.
We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.
You must not fight too often with one enemy, or you will teach him all your art of war.
What counts is not necessarily the size of the dog in the fight - it's the size of the fight in the dog.
If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.
If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle
Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.
For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.
The good fighters of old first put themselves beyond the possibility of defeat, and then waited for an opportunity of defeating the enemy.
To be nobody-but-yourself - in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
I run on the road long before I dance under the lights.
I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.
Each generation has to stand up for democracy. It can't take anything for granted and may have to fight fundamental battles anew.
The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses - behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.
