Photographer Unknown, (On the Field)
A warrior knows death is always a hair’s breadth away, but he doesn’t dwell on the possibility of his death when he goes into battle. A warrior just fights. He fights to protect his family, his home, his people, himself, and often, the good of man. The wolf never gives a passing thought to the possibility of his death. For the wolf, he will fight to the end if need be, solely to defend his territory. Neither of these things are necessarily a reason to enter into battle when you are already weakened. They just are what they are. They live in a warrior’s heart, in a wolf’s heart. And both, for me, are in my heart.
