It is better to conquer yourself
Than to win a thousand battles.


My worst enemy is my own mind. I've struggled more violently against my own habits, feelings, lack of feelings, faith, lack of faith, selfishness, you name it, than I ever have against another person, the elements, society, etc. It's wonderfully ironic that these external battles are negative ultimately due to the internal suffering they cause, or as is more often the case, are caused by. So. External battles can be more easily won once you've conquered your own mind. Guess I better get right on that...
