fight topic – words that move men

The speech
of William Wallace from “Braveheart”

“I am William Wallace. And I see a whole army of my countrymen,
here in defiance of tyranny! You have come to fight as free men. And
free man you are! What will you do without freedom? Will you fight?”
“Two thousand against ten?” – the veteran shouted. “No! We will
run – and live!”
“Yes!” Wallace shouted back. “Fight and you may die. Run and you
will live at least awhile. And dying in your bed many years from now,
would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for
one chance, just one cahnce, to come back here as young men and tell
our enemies that they may take our lives but they will never take
our freedom!”
Some quotes form the movie
Malcolm: I know. I know you can fight. But it’s out wits that make us men. See you tomorrow.
Dead Malcolm: Your heart is free. Have the courage to follow her.
Argyle: First, learn to use this (mind), then I’ll teach you to use this (sword).
William: Well, a test of a soldier is not in his arm, it’s here (mind).
Hamish: Where are you going? William: I’m going to pick a fight.

Choose ur battles

Sometimes one needs to run…. And sometimes one needs to stand and fight

This is what I got form that line that my dad told me and taught me; sometimes it is just not worth getting into an argument. He said that some battles are bigger than others and so if you are going to fight then you should rather fight the big battles. The ones that are going to make the difference and not waste your time or bring up your convictions on things that at the end of the day you might win but it kind of gets you nowhere. I also realized or learnt or what have you that if you are going to fight every battle then how can people take you seriously on a one that you really are passionate about the ones that really count . – Similar to the boy who cried wolf. – … To repeat if you choose your battle then the ones that you choose people will understand that you serious about it.

Bottom line –  Not so much about running but more about being wise, war is a thinking game. When you go into it go in and win … till then do the other ones really matter?

Secondly .. Listen to your parents .. they actually know many things … even if you think you learnt enough or all you could from them they might have just the right advice for you.

I came across this article … [Parents] have a look


Sometimes one needs to run away.

This is my opinion; in fact this is my blog so it is all just from what I say but ya.

There are times that it is just not worth it to stay and fight and should rather run and to live, and then when you are stronger and have more insight, experience or whatever is needed you can come back to fight.

2moro I shall continue with a one of the lessons my father taught me that links well with today’s thought. > Choose your battles <


hoping for the best

i realize that i am a die hard fan. I hope for things that just should not be… but i wonder if it is a bad thing. I think it carries through to life but It mainly pops up with sport… i say things like yes if this and this happen then we will make it, or no we still have 5 mins … referring to getting some unreasonable score.. I enjoy it … i just wonder if it can effect me badly.


get it done

i once heard… even if it looks bad get it done!

what it is talking about is not about doing things sub standard but rather about actually finishing a task. This is not the same as procrastination i don’t feel. This is more about perfectionism , or worry or redoing the same thing over and over in the hope you are making it better.

Fear of failure?

Maybe it is that, maybe we don’t want to admit that we are wrong sometimes that it is ok to be wrong. Maybe we are worried that the world might end if the message is not received correctly … i have found that the world is not so worried about it … and you should not be as well.

If and when it can be batter then you can do it. but get it out there. That is why there is updates to software and phones and changes to products. If the things stayed in the warehouse till it was 100 % or perfect then we would never have things… Like the PS3 it came out big and bulky … i tad bit of a mess … but the fixed it up and now it is slim and smooth. have you realized how many times some soda can or ice cream logos change? not the main name but how it looks.

So instead of taking that extra week that you don’t actually have …maybe it is worth saying this is my product, what are your thoughts.

Waka waka

You’re a good soldier
Choosing your battles
Pick yourself up
And dust yourself off
And back in the saddle

You’re on the frontline
Everyone’s watching
You know it’s serious
We’re getting closer
This isnt over

The pressure is on
You feel it
But you’ve got it all
Believe it

When you fall get up
Oh oh…
And if you fall get up
Oh oh…

Tsamina mina
Cuz this is Africa

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka Waka eh eh

Tsamina mina zangalewa
Anawa aa
This time for Africa
Listen to your god

This is our motto
Your time to shine
Dont wait in line
Y vamos por Todo

People are raising
Their Expectations
Go on and feed them
This is your moment
No hesitations

Today’s your day
I feel it
You paved the way
Believe it

If you get down
Get up Oh oh…
When you get down
Get up eh eh…

Tsamina mina zangalewa

This time for Africa

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka Waka eh eh

Tsamina mina zangalewa

Tsamina mina eh eh
Waka Waka eh eh
Tsamina mina zangalewa

giving is a gift


it is tru. i don’t know if you know but one really does feel good after having given a gift… something in pride of being able to make someone happy or the joy that you see in them is the joy that transfers to you. I don’t know but it is tru.

I have also seen that when you give then things go good for you as well. in other words. When you are sowing good seed what you receive in return is also good.

or maybe it is that we are copying a similar act that changed the coarse of history. The act of giving something that was most precious the the giver but knew that others would benefit from it, and i don’t know i was not there but im sure that although it could not have been an easy thing God was pleased that he could give is son Jesus to take away all sin, all law. So that no person once haven chosen the right path must live in darkness.

Enjoy giving, enjoy the joy that it brings to you. Bless other that you to may be blessed in doing so.
