    "Remember, if it was easy, everyone would do it. Champions are built brick by painful brick
    and that can take a lifetime. Sometimes it can happen without anyone even bothering to
    notice. Take heart. The mountains you climb can't always be seen by an audience...
    Still, you must not stop climbing. For, in all their sophomoric hubris, whatever actions
    men take, or do not take, the mountain remains."

    Re: Mental Quotes

    Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.
    Life is a gamble. You can get hurt, but people die in plane crashes, lose their arms and legs in car accidents; people die every day. Same with fighters: some die, some get hurt, some go on. You just don't let yourself believe it will happen to you.
    -Muhammad Ali

    Re: Mental Quotes

    Probably a common one:
    "Pain is weakness leaving the body"

    I stop and look at this quote almost once a day. along with of course:

    "The only easy day was yesterday"

    Keeps me going all day long!

    Train with a definitive mindset,
    a brand of defiance.
    Go into the dark places of the mind
    and come out stronger,
    ready to do battle.

    ...from a NoFear ad in a motocross magazine featuring J.McGrath (circa 1998)

    Classics by the one and only General George S. Patton.....


    "We're not going to just shoot the sons-of-*******, we're going to rip out their living goddamned guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks. We're going to murder those lousy Hun cocksuckers by the bushel-*******-basket. War is a bloody, killing business. You've got to spill their blood, or they will spill yours."


    "I don't want to get any messages saying, 'I am holding my position.' We are not holding a goddamned thing. Let the Germans do that. We are advancing constantly and we are not interested in holding onto anything, except the enemy's balls. We are going to twist his balls and kick the living **** out of him all of the time. Our basic plan of operation is to advance and to keep on advancing regardless of whether we have to go over, under, or through the enemy. We are going to go through him like crap through a goose; like **** through a tin horn!"


    "Some ******* fool once said that flanks have got to be secure. Since then son-of-a-******* all over the globe have been guarding their flanks. I don't agree with that. My flanks are something for the enemy to worry about, not me. Before he finds out where my flanks are, I'll be cutting the *******'s throat."

    "There is one great thing that you men will all be able to say after this war is over and you are home once again. You may be thankful that twenty years from now when you are sitting by the fireplace with your grandson on your knee and he asks you what you did in the great World War II, you won't have to cough, shift him to the other knee and say, 'Well, your Granddaddy shoveled **** in Louisiana.' No, Sir, you can look him straight in the eye and say, "Son, your Granddaddy rode with the Great Third Army and a Son-of-a-Goddamned-***** named Georgie Patton! "
    "Accept challenges so that you may feel the exhilaration of victory."

    Gotta love Patton. I bet he'd be a great BUD/S instructor.

    One thing is for sure, you will never be a SEAL is you spend your time listening to what others have to say. Work hard and don't quit until the day they put you in a box. ~ Senior Chief Gio
