Get to your feet

No one is born a warrior.

One chooses to be a warrior 

when one refuses to remain

seated. One chooses to be a

warrior when one refuses to

concede. One chooses to be

a warrior when, no matter

how many times one is

knocked down, one rises

again to one’s feet. You

choose to be a warrior,

because if not you, who?

You could be brilliant –

you could be a warrior,

too – but you are a coward.

Courage begins at that point,

that moment, when resistance

overcomes submission.
