|Pg-13||"The self-confidence of the warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humbleness. The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to himself. Perhaps you are chasing rainbows. You're after the self-confidence of the average man, when you should be after the humbleness of a warrior. The difference between the two is re-markable. Self-confidence entails knowing something for sure; humbleness entails being impeccable in one's actions and feelings.|
|Pg-24||"A warrior takes his lot, whatever it may be, and accepts it in ultimate Humbleness. He accepts in humbleness what he is, not as grounds for regret but as a living challenge. It takes time for every one of us to understand that point and fully live it. I, for instance, hated the mere mention of the word "humbleness". I'm an Indian and we Indians have always been humble and have done nothing else but lower our head. I thought humbleness was not in the warrior's way. I was wrong! I know now that the humbleness of a warrior is not the humbleness of a beggar. The warrior lowers his head to no one, but at the same time, he doesn't permit anyone to lower his head to him. The beggar, on the other hand, falls to his knees at the drop of a hat and scrapes the floor for anyone he deems to be higher; but at the same time, he demands that someone lower than him scrape the floor for him.|
|Pg-29||"`That's the flaw with words,' he said in an assuring tone. 'They always force us to feel enlightened, but when we turn around to face the world they always fail us and we end up facing the world, as we always have, without enlightenment. For this reason, a sorcerer seeks to act rather than to talk and to this effect he gets a new description of the world - a new description where talking is not that important, and where new acts have new reflections.'|
