We decide which is right and which is an illusion.

Defeat Is For The Valiant

‘Defeat is for the valiant. Only they will know the honor of losing and the joy of winning. I am not here to tell you that defeat is a part of life–we all know that. Only the defeated know love. Because it is in the realm of love that we fight our first battles and generally lose. I am here to tell you that there are people who have never been defeated. They are the ones who never fought. They managed to avoid scars, humiliations, feelings of helplessness as well as those moments when even warriors doubt the existence of God.’
