10 Great Lines from GSP's book

10 great lines from The Way of the Fight:
1. “Humility is the first rule of martial arts. Either you learn humility quickly, or you leave because your ego can’t handle losing repeatedly.”
2. “I’ve never been the biggest guy in the octagon, and I don’t want to be either. My goal is to be the most efficient, quickest thinking fighter. I aim to be flexible, open minded and ready for any situation.”
3. “I see the world as a knowledge hardware store, and every day I’m just walking through the aisles. All along the aisles, they have those knowledge keys. Each key opens a different door.”
4. “Once fear enters your life – whether it’s been there for a second or a lifetime makes no difference – it will take you n one of two directions: empowerment or panic.”
5. “The outcome of my next fight is not determined in the octagon. It’s determined in the weeks and months before the fight when I’m getting ready for it.”
6. “World champions need “truth-sayers” around them, and John Danaher is a truth-sayer. A truth-sayer is a person who doesn’t bullshit you about everything. A truth-sayer is someone who has enough respect for you to tell you the truth and help you differentiate the real from the mirage.”
7. “Balance has taught me two incredibly important lessons: 1) resting is growing, and 2) waiting is training.”
8. “I don’t like solitude. I need to be around other humans. I crave human contact and interaction and laughter and escape. If I or anyone wants to become the best at something, none of us will get there alone.”
9. “It’s from doing – that you get your confidence back. Getting back in the ring and performing, doing well.”
10. “Before each one of my fights, I make a point of saluting my opponent. I salute the other fighter out of respect, even though he is trying to take something away from me.”
