“THE SELF-CONFIDENCE OF THE WARRIOR IS NOT THE SELF-CONFIDENCE OF THE AVERAGE PERSON. THE AVERAGE PERSON SEEKS CERTAINTY IN THE EYES OF THE ONLOOKER AND CALLS THAT SELF-CONFIDENCE. THE WARRIOR SEEKS IMPECCABILITY IN HIS/HER OWN EYES AND CALLS THAT HUMBLENESS. THE AVERAGE PERSON IS HOOKED TO HIS FELLOW MEN, WHILE THE WARRIOR IS HOOKED ONLY TO INFINITY.” ~ CARLOS CASTANEDA
