This is the second day of the 3 Days, 3 Quotes tag! Again, I’d like to thank Chizurue and Cactus Matt for this opportunity!
• Thank the person who nominated you.
• Post a quote for 3 consecutive days (1 quote for each day, can be a super short post).
• Nominate three new bloggers each day.
This time, I want to share this one:
“Is ‘defeat’ proof that you are weak? Isn’t ‘defeat’ more like a trial to overcome? Of whether you can stand up and walk again after falling to your knees? If you remain on your knees like that, then it would be a sign of weakness.”
— Takeda Ittetsu (on chapter 69)
No one likes losing or failing. It’s always heartbreaking whenever you lose or fail, especially when you gave it your all in order to win and succeed. I love these lines by Takeda-sensei because it speaks of what defines weakness and it’s certainly not defeat.
Losing doesn’t mean that you’re weak. It means that there’s a lot more to do. It means you can improve more. There are a lot more possibilities to venture on. You’re not at your limit yet until you decided to stop.
This post became more serious than yesterday’s. I wanted to avoid going with a Haikyuu!! quote, but I really couldn’t help it!
