Listen to me carefully and remember every word.
A warrior is not a soldier.
A warrior is not a follower, nor is he a leader except at great need.
A warrior learns from the animals, the hills, and the rivers.
A warrior never begs or pleads, nor does he give in to hopelessness and despair.
Whether the warrior is successful or tries valiantly only to have failed, he thanks the Great Spirit for the opportunity and the lessons.
A warrior cares for the weakest and least of his brothers,
humbling himself in their service.
He seeks wisdom in all things and learns from even the dullest, for all are his teachers.
A warrior leaves judgment of his brothers and sisters to the Great Spirit, but does not tolerate disrespectful behavior in his presence.
Love and Peace,
