Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn’t even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle.
Ah, but the one. The One is a Warrior, and he will bring the others back. Heraclitus
To become the One Warrior, One first must have been One among the Nine.
And to have been One of the Nine, One must have been One among the Eighty.
And to have been One of the Eighty, One must have been One among the Ten.
And throughout my life, at any given moment, depending upon the circumstance, my course has doubled back to where I have found myself as One of the Ten, the Eighty, or the Nine. It is a circuitous and painful route and from experience and the wisdom of others, I have learned to suffer wisely.
