Honest Fighters
Søren Kierkegaard

The path of an honest fighter is a difficult one.
And when the fighter grows cool in the evening
of his life this is still no excuse to retire into
games and amusement. Whoever remains
faithful to his decision will realize that his whole
life is a struggle. Such a person does not fall
into the temptation of proudly telling others of
what he has done with his life. Nor will he talk
about the "great decisions" he has made. He
knows full well that at decisive moments you
have to renew your resolve again and again and
that this alone makes good the decision and
the decision good.
