Time takes it all
whether you want it to or not,
time takes it all.
Time bares it away,
and in the end
there is only darkness.
Sometimes we find others in that darkness,
and sometimes we lose them there again.
Only as a warrior can one withstand the path of knowledge. A warrior cannot complain or regret anything. His life is an endless challenge, and challenges cannot possibly be good or bad. Challenges are simply challenges.
Sorcerers maintain that talking about ourselves makes us accessible and weak, while learning how to be quiet fills us with power. A principle of the path of knowledge is to turn your own life into something so unpredictable that not even you yourself knows what’s going to happen.
You think about yourself too much, he said and smiled. And that gives you a strange fatigue that makes you shut off the world around you and cling to your arguments. Therefore, all you have is problems.
To be a warrior is not a simple matter of wishing to be one. It is rather an endless struggle that will go on to the very last moment of our lives. Nobody is born a warrior, in exactly the same way that nobody is born an average man. We make ourselves into one or the other.
