Quote by Stephen King
Sooner or later even the fastest runners have to stand and fight.
This quote suggests that, inevitably, even the most skilled individuals will face situations where they cannot simply rely on their speed or evasiveness alone. At some point, they will have to confront their challenges head-on and find the courage to fight. It emphasizes the idea that running or avoiding conflict can only be a temporary solution, and eventually, one must confront and address the obstacles in their path.
Much more than our other needs and endeavors, it is sexuality that puts us on an even footing with our kind: the more we practice it, the more we become like everyone else: it is in the performance of a reputedly bestial function that we prove our status as citizens: nothing is more public than the sexual act.
Our thinking is inconsistent with what we actually see. The eye is a perfect, natural organ. The seen image is a reaction phenomenon. Using an artificial optical apparatus, the same effect, for example, can only be obtained by a roundabout way, by means of a negative. The eye, on the other hand, immediately presents us with the diapositive, namely the true image. Our sight constitutes an unconscious, automatic transformation process, through which the negative image - like a photographic negative - (i.e. the effect), is transformed into a positive one, like a diapositive color slide. Our thinking, however, is really a purely individual, conscious process and therefore learnable. If our thinking is to attain the same perfection as our seeing, then we must change our way of thinking and learn to see reality, not as an action, but as a reaction. Perfect thought lies in the apprehension of the correct reaction, for before the eye can show us the positive, it must first transform the negative and in a certain manner must break up what it records. What we see therefore, is the turning inside out of what we receive. What our mind grasps in this way must be re-formed and re-thought if we wish to attain what we strive for.http://www.frank.germano.com/viktorschauberger_b.htm
There is no greater honor than the one received by athletes the moment they see the raised flag of their country at the highest level, and when they hear their national anthem inundating every corner of the stadium and reaching the ends of the earth.From speech in an Olympic Education event, 4 November 2000.
