“Fight one more round. When your feet are so tired that you have to shuffle back to the centre of the ring, fight one more round. When your arms are so tired that you can hardly lift your hands to come on guard, fight one more round. When your nose is bleeding and your eyes are black and you are so tired you wish your opponent would crack you one on the jaw and put you to sleep, fight one more round – remembering that the man who always fights one more round is never whipped.” - James "Gentleman Jim" Corbett
Don't ever give up. A warrior's greatest asset is their ability to preserve and over come the odds. Gentleman Jim's assertion could be the warrior's inner dialogue which drives them to the finish. Perseverance, drive and commitment are those things which cannot be taught and are only learned along the way.
Mark Twain once wrote, "It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog." When things are rough and seemingly not going our way it really does comes down to the size of the fight in our hearts and warriors never give up!
