„Přijde čas, kdy si budeš myslet, že je všechno hotovo. To bude začátek.“ Sám v horách

„Pouze ten, kdo toho hodně poznal, si dokáže plně uvědomit svou nevědomost.“


„The one law that does not change is that everything changes, and the hardship I was bearing today was only a breath away from the pleasures I would have tomorrow, and those pleasures would be all the richer because of the memories of this I was enduring.“

„He never knew when he was whipped... so he never was.“

„Pa, he always said a man had to look spry for himself, because nobody would do it for him; your opportunities didn't come knocking around, you had to hunt them down and hog-tie them.“

„It is better to have no emotion when it is work. Do what needs to be done, and do it coolly.“

„Being scared can keep a man from getting killed, and often makes a better fighter of him.“

„Any man can shoot a gun, and with practice he can draw fast and shoot accurately, but that makes no difference. What counts is how you stand up when somebody is shooting back at you.“


„A man who says he has never been scared is either lying or else he's never been any place or done anything.“

„He might never really do what he said, but at least he had it in mind. He had somewhere to go.“

„One thing we learned. To make a start and keep plugging. When I had fights at school, the little while I went, I just bowed my neck and kept swinging until something hit the dirt. Sometimes it was me, but I always got up.“

„A wise man fights to win, but he is twice a fool who has no plan for possible defeat.“


„Enemies can be an incentive to survive and become someone in spite of them. Enemies can keep you alert and aware.“

„For you and me, today is all we have; tomorrow is a mirage that may never become reality.“

„There is no miraculous change that takes place in a boy that makes him a man. He becomes a man by being a man.“

„The wind was cold off the mountains and I was a naked man with enemies behind me, and nothing before me but hope.“
