Seek out combat: Intellectual, romantic, social, economic, and physical. Not to win, but to improve until you can no longer find a way to lose. Love the fight. Revel in it. It’s your heritage. Celebrate it. Heroes all – whether words, heart, work, money, stick, spear, sword or rifle. He who fights regardless of rank is a brother in arms.
Famous household phrase I’d hear, “that’s okay, at least I’ll die trying.” Anecdotal. Nostalgic. Usually it was spoken in reference to a physical contest (street scuffle) and rebuffing an opponents boastful challenge.— William Benge
Also pick intellectual fights with people with similar belief structure using arguments you do not agree with… great for hashing out third ways and new perspectives.–Delian
