Do not be flattered by power, do not give in to violence, do not be a slave to money. That's what it means to be a man's man. We must become real men. Especially because we are warriors on the Budo path.

We must be firm with ourselves, but kind to others.

Above all, I feel for the poor more than the rich -- the deprived more than the abundant. The weak rather than the strong. I will always be drawn to the minority more than the majority.

- Sosai Mas Oyama

I keep this quote in my office and no matter the laughter of the day or kidding around
online I always make sure to have some ground in reality. A few important points I'd like
to make in this post while I am at it.

Ambition, work ethic, and the will to strive do not have to parallel greed.

It's okay to own nice things, but never let them own you.

An Ego just exists. It's not to be rejected or embraced but merely recognized. It should work
for you, not you work for it.

All too common people are defined by the things they own. Their possessions own them. I for one choose to not be this or that. I don't have to fit into any of societies boxes and neither do you.

Think inside the box. Think outside the box. In reality, there's no box to think about. :)

Since I am planning to run a marathon in the months to come, this would be my motivating quote.


""Carry the reminder that once you cross the finish line, you will be a Marathoner, and no one can take that away from you"" Doesn't matter if you run, jog, walk, or crawl through the finish line.
