If a man can realize his divine nature with the help of an image, would it be right to call that a sin ? Nor, even when he has passed that stage, should he call it an error. Man is not traveling from error to truth, but from truth to truth, from lower to higher truth. To him all the religions from the lowest fetishism to the highest absolutism, mean so many attempts of the human soul to grasp and realize the infinite, each determined by the conditions of its birth and association, and each of these marks a stage of progress, and every soul is a young eagle soaring higher and higher, gathering more and more strength till it reaches the glorious sun.

Remember, there is no situation so completely hopeless that something constructive can not be done about it. When faced with a minus, ask yourself what you can do to make it a plus. A person practicing this attitude will extract undreamed-of outcomes from the most unpromising situations. Realize that there are no hopeless situations, there are only people who take hopeless attitudes.

Norman Vincent Peale

I do not believe in styles anymore. I do not believe that there is such a thing as the Chinese way of fighting or the Japanese way of fighting, or any other way of fighting, because unless a human being has three arms and four legs, there can be no different form of fighting. To me, ultimately, martial art means honestly expressing yourself.
