022311 Weapons of Warrior Wisdom
Here are today’s Weapons of Warrior Wisdom.
To commemorate President’s Day, one of Thomas Jefferson. He penned the most famous and greatest words:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
Freedom is a tricky thing. It takes guts to stomach the responsibility of it. A lot of people don’t have the appetite for it. Freedom puts you way out there on the limb of life — all on your OWN…Do or Die. Warriors thrive on it.
One of my customary Warrior Wisdom Weapons.
And my buddy, Jack. Jack is a great name. Jack Lalanne lived a great life. If there was ever any human being who fulfilled his destiny, he DAMN sure did. He was brutally honest and true to himself. Clips from his TV show, which ran 34 years, are equally classic as he was. A TV personality today would be thrown off the air for saying the Pro-American and Pro-Self-Responsibility things he did. The 1984 Playboy interview he did at the age of 76 is an absolute must read:
I believe in vigorous, violent, daily, systematic exercise to the point of muscle failure. I’m usually up each day at 3:30 A.M. I hit the gym at four A.M. I’m out at 6:30 A.M. I do it seven days a week and have ever since I can remember. Sometimes I hit the gym without having gotten any sleep, like when I’ve done a lecture or a seminar. My top priority in life is my workout. Regardless of what happens, I hit that gym. Even when I was in the hospital twice with serious knee operations: Right after I came out of anesthesia, there was a chin bar over my head and dumbbells. I worked out immediately.
It’s very easy to rationalize, however, and say, “What the hell. I didn’t get enough sleep” or “I’m too busy” or “I’ve got this little ache or pain.” That’s all bullcrap. You do it. It’s tough. It’s hard. I’d rather take a beating sometimes than get in that gym every morning. Anyone who gets up that early and says he likes it is a goddamned liar. The only good thing about it is that when I’m finished, I look at myself in the mirror and say, “Jack, you’ve done it again!” I’ve won another battle over myself, and that’s what it’s all about: conquering me. If I didn’t do it, I’d be lying to myself. If I lie to me, I lie to you and wreck everything that Jack La Lanne stands for. If I’m not an example of my philosophy, it sure isn’t going to turn anyone else on. That’s why Jesus made such a big impact. He practiced what he preached. He also did miracles to call attention to his philosophies. That’s why I do incredible things on my birthdays.
I LOVE THIS THAT HE SAID ABOUT HUSBANDS AND WIVES LETTING THEMSELVES GET OUT OF SHAPE:
We’re sensuous creatures. Sex is the greatest driving force on this planet. Christ, why are we living if we can’t have a little fun?
Sex is giving, and the more you give, the better lover you are. But if you don’t have it to give, well, that’s why physical fitness is so great. What group of people are the sexiest of all these days? Athletes! They’ve got the health, the energy; they can give of themselves. And if you love sex, you’ve got to have something to give. Look, if you’re sick, are you thinking of sex? That’s what I try to tell the guys. Some have three or four extra inches on their waistline, yet they like to be proud of themselves in the sack. I say, “Look, for every two inches you take off up there, it makes your business down there look an inch longer. Isn’t everything relative? If you have a six-inch tool and a 50-inch waistline, the thing doesn’t look very big, does it?” That’s my incentive.It’s simple: You’ve got to appeal to the pride in people. When a woman is flabby and soft, she’s unattractive. When you married a beautiful girl and all of a sudden you start seeing her tits down to here and her breath stinks and she’s not clean anymore and has no pride in herself, you can’t love her. You may bullshit yourself, but you can’t. Energy makes people beautiful. That’s what charisma is. You don’t want to be close to someone who is dead and crapped out all the time, who’s bitching that it’s a lousy fucking world and “Christ, my ulcers are killing me.” Maybe 50 or 60 percent of all divorces are predicated on someone’s being physically unfit. Who wants to live with negativism? Love goes out the window.
